Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho has admitted that he sometimes goes to Manchester United legend Sir Alex Ferguson for management advice.

Speaking to BT Sport as part of their Christmas special interview hosted by Clare Balding, the Chelsea manager revealed him and Ferguson are 'good friends' and Mourinho looks to tap into the knowledge of the Premier League's most successful boss.

"Everything, his talent, the time he put his talent at the service of Manchester United and football in general," Mourinho said.

"The passion that he has put in to everything, and after that in private moments, obviously, a good friend, a good person, a fantastic sense of humour.

"I like him very, very much. Now and again I’ve had questions to put to him and the way he has answered to me was always magnificent and a great support.”

Mourinho and Ferguson were close during Mourinho's first stint at Chelsea, and it was reported that the Special One wanted to replace Ferguson at Old Trafford at one point.

That never worked out, with Mourinho instead returning from Real Madrid for a second spell in charge at Stamford Bridge.

It's interesting to note again though, that Mourinho appears pretty keen on paying tribute to Manchester United legends - has he still got his eye on the Old Trafford job one day further down the line?

Do you think Jose Mourinho would make a good Manchester United manager one day?
