Sir Alex Ferguson was never one for humour in his pre or post-match press conferences. During his trophy-laden reign at Manchester United, it was always straight down to business for the Scot.

However, during Saturday's UNICEF 'Match for Children' at Old Trafford, Ferguson was able to take it easy as he took charge of the Great Britain and Ireland team. 

During his pre-match press conference, the Red Devils legend trolled struggling Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho by answering a question in the Stamford Bridge chief's typical style.

BBC presenter Dan Walker asked Ferguson how it felt to be back at his old stomping ground, to which the 73-year-old responded: "No comment," with a big grin on his face.

The 13-time Premier League-winning manager was in a jovial mood throughout the afternoon at Old Trafford and could often be seen smiling as his Great Britain and Ireland team won 3-1.

However, getting a smile from Mourinho these days seems harder than drawing blood from a stone. 

The Chelsea boss is, understandably, not happy with his side's start to the season and his press conferences are often cagey with very little said by the manager. 

Of course, there have been times when Mourinho has said too much, but following an outburst after the defeat to Southampton, the Special One has toned down his meetings with the media.

Chelsea are back in action next weekend with a home clash against Norwich City and they desperately need to pick up three points as they currently sit 16th in the table.
