Villas-Boas sacking 'sad' - Ferguson

Published Add your comment

Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson was among those to sympathise with sacked Chelsea boss Andre Villas-Boas, despite admitting the news did not surprise him.

Villas-Boas was shown the door at Stamford Bridge following another poor result, this time a 1-0 defeat West Brom, and Ferguson was disappointed to see a highly-rated young manager given such a short time to prove himself in the Barclays Premier League.

Speaking prior to his own side's 3-1 win over Tottenham, Ferguson told Sky Sports: "The news is not surprising to me really. There was all the build-up in the media and obviously the results haven't been kind to him. But it is disappointing because he is a young manager."
