Bournemouth striker Josh King has nothing bad to say about former Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson.

Ahead of tomorrow’s return, King has been reflecting on his time at United, detailing some of the lengths Ferguson went to to ensure his young players were brought up correctly.

“I was with the reserves. I trained a few times with the first team but was never part of the first-team dressing room,” King told the Bournemouth Echo.

“He was probably one of the best managers in the world and I have nothing bad to say about him.

“To be a part of the first team, you had to have made that step. He wanted you to know that you had to work hard to get to the first team.

“All the youngsters had to wear black boots and weren’t allowed to train wearing gloves before they had reached the first team.

“He helped keep a lot of the young players’ heads planted and nobody ever thought they were better than they were. It was probably the best school to go to as a young player.”
