Sir Alex’s management skills exemplified by tiny gesture to ex-Man Utd star

Sir Alex Ferguson's management skills has been laid out brilliantly by former Manchester United flop Kleberson.

Kleberson travelled to United as a World Cup winner, having conquered the world with Brazil, but he was immediately overshadowed on his first day at Old Trafford. The Brazilian was unveiled alongside a certain Cristiano Ronaldo, who had also moved to Manchester.

And after Kleberson struggled to settle in Manchester, Fergie showed his man-management side. Speaking exclusively to Ladbrokes: Fanzone, Kleberson said: "I noticed he was trying to learn Portuguese, to help me feel more comfortable.

"So he'd learn all of the weekdays and times in Portuguese, which I thought was really good of him.

"It's such a funny moment to think about, because he's one of the biggest managers in world football and he's taking the time to learn the languages of his players – he's an amazing manager. He knew what his players needed at all times, he was an incredible mentor.

"He really tried to make me comfortable at the club, even up until my last day!"

Kleberson left United in 2005, after two seasons of failing to set the world on fire at Old Trafford.

And he continued: "He told me I was a good player and that I would be moving on, but that I had a great opportunity to go and prove myself with another team.

"But your name will never be erased from our history; no one will take that away from you."
