Alex Ferguson Quotes: Everywhere I go the coaches all tell me that Scholsey is the player they admire. But if they think they'll get him they're wasting their time!

Alex Ferguson Sayings: In England, it's a rare thing to see a player smoking but, all in all, I prefer that to an alcoholic.

Sayings about Alex Ferguson: Scholes was probably the best English midfielder since Bobby Charlton. He was such a brilliant long passer that he could choose a hair on the head of any team-mate answering the call of nature at our training ground. Gary Neville once thought he had found refuge in a bush, but Scholesy found him from 40 yeards. He inflicted a similar long-range missile strike, once, on Peter Schmeichel, and was chased round the training ground for his impertinence. Scholesy would have made a first class-sniper.

Saying about Alex Ferguson: I never worried about teams who spend what they want to spend. It never bothered me. At the moment we have a lot of Middle Eastern owners, we have American owners of course, Russian owners. It never bothered me one bit. All I was concerned about was that we at United maintained our level of expectation, be competitive, be at the top part of the Premier League.
