London, May 19 (ANI): Manchester United manager Alex Ferguson has revealed just why he loves the Champions League - cigars, perfume and continental women.
“England is about tribalism. You’ve these different countries in one big country. That tribalism forces you to do well in the Premier League but the real excitement comes in Europe. The Wednesday night atmosphere when you, maybe, go to Madrid and Barcelona. You can smell the cigars and there’s perfume wafting down from the stands. It’s wonderful, it’s different. I love it. You go to Milan and everyone’s so stylish. Every woman who passes you by is Miss World. The whole atmosphere at these places is unreal,” The Sun quoted Ferguson, as saying.It will be in Rome, too, on May 27 when United take part in the dream final against Barcelona.
Ferguson could not be more confident about the spectacle - and the outcome. He added: “I’m as confident as I possibly can be, simply because we’ve won the League. We’re going there with a fresh team. (ANI)
