Woods is a role model for Manchester United: FergusonApril 12th, 2009 - 12:40 am ICT by IANS
London, April 11 (IANS) Manchester United manager Alex Ferguson believes that Tiger Woods emplifies the qualities required to achieve great success and that the champion club should follow the American golfer.
“It can be difficult for some that have the nature that, when they get into a comfortable zone, they can relax too much and can’t get it back. Whereas real stars - you think of Tiger Woods - he’s been off golf for months, he comes back after that knee operation and there he is, he wins that tournament (Arnold Palmer Invitational) last week,” Ferguson was quoted as saying by the English media.
“You tell me what drives him on and it is that they’re special people. No matter how successful they are, they have a driving force in them that makes them want to win the next one and the next one - that’s their nature.
“Others’ nature is ‘oh I don’t need to go to work tomorrow, I’ve got enough money, I’ll retire at 30′,” he said.
