Legendary Manchester United boss, Sir Alex Ferguson paid tribute to Roma manager, Jose Mourinho, as he joins an elite group of managers.
Mourinho will take charge of his 1000th game when Roma host Sassuolo in Serie A on Sunday night.
The 58-year-old has so far won two Champions League titles and domestic titles in Portugal, England, Italy and Spain.
Ferguson has now hailed Mourinho as he is inducted into the League Manager Association’s (LMA’s) Hall of Fame 1000 club.
He said: “Reaching 1000 matches as a manager will be such a proud day for both Jose and his family and rightly so.
“To reach this landmark as a manager is an outstanding accomplishment for Jose, particularly whilst excelling and winning titles in four European leagues and of course winning two Champions League trophies along the way.
“Jose’s achievements will always ensure that he is acknowledged as one of the managerial greats.
