Ferguson makes a point in praise of Bay­ern

The Daily Telegraph - Sport - - Football -

It is hard not to read sig­nif­i­cance into Sir Alex Ferguson’s praise of Bay­ern Mu­nich. Speak­ing ahead of Manch­ester United’s Leg­ends match, a 1999 Cham­pi­ons League fi­nal re­union, Ferguson told MUTV: “Bay­ern is a club run in the proper foun­da­tion of it. For­mer play­ers run it re­ally, Uli Hoe­ness and Karl-heinz Rum­menigge. They run the club in the right way and they are al­ways win­ning the league.” Al­though not as undiplo­matic as the re­cent tirade against the play­ers by fan Ge­of­frey Boy­cott, also on the club’s in-house TV sta­tion, it felt far more res­o­nant given who said it and that it in­vited such an ob­vi­ous com­par­i­son – one Ferguson did not have to spell out.
