Sir Alex Ferguson has paid a warm tribute to departed Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho and claimed Avram Grant has a "big test" on his hands trying to replace him.

The Manchester United manager has always held Mourinho in high regard even though the Scot has tended to come out second best in matches between their teams, feeling he can spot elements of his own character in the extrovert Portuguese coach.

"Jose leaving Chelsea is a disappointment for the game," said Ferguson. "He was terrific for football and terrific for Chelsea. He brought something fresh and new to our game and I enjoyed the competition with him. I wish him well but I just don´t know what I am going to do with my wine now."
