After his team was defeated by a sensational Barcelona team during the recent European final, many expected Alex Ferguson to throw in the towel and retire.
But he did not.
Instead, this 70-year old manager has been busy getting his team ready to mount another challenge in the new season.
“You shouldn’t be afraid of a challenge. We’ve got better and better. We want to improve. Of course, next season, we must improve even more,” said Alex Ferguson after the defeat.
Indeed, champions are not those who do not fail but they’re those who do not quit.
It is safe to say that Manchester United are the champions they are today because of their manager’s winning mentality.
Alex, is one person that readily admits that he does not enjoy being second best and his team not only understands that but adopts his winning mentality.
If his 24 years at the same club and winning 12 championship titles is not convincing proof of his insatiable appetite for winning, I do not know what is.
I truly take my hat off and salute this true champion of a man.
