Paris Saint-Germain coach Carlo Ancelotti says Manchester United’s Sir Alex Ferguson has been a personal role model during his career.

Ferguson has been in charge at Old Trafford since 1986, achieving extraordinary success during the English Premier League era.

Italian Ancelotti, who came up against Ferguson both with Milan and Chelsea, has expressed his admiration for the veteran manager ahead of PSG’s clash with Ligue 1 leaders Marseille.

“A big coach? It’s someone who has his own style of play,” he told reporters.

“The coach I appreciate most is Sir Alex Ferguson. He’s still there (at Manchester United) with his passion. I like the Manchester United discipline.

“Me? I’m a big coach for sure. I don’t like talking about myself but I can say that I love my work and I like doing interviews.”

PSG, who sit second on the league table, are set to face Marseille on Sunday, and Ancelotti is looking forward to the crucial encounter.

“It’s going to be a match with a lot of pressure for both teams,” he said.

“It’s exciting for us because if we win, we take first place.

“In September, no one believed we would be first after only eight games.”
