But the legendary Manchester United manager’s sibling says he is starting to come round to Jose Mourinho’s appointment despite not being his biggest fan.
United and City go head-to-head once again this weekend in one of the most eagerly-awaited derbies in recent memory.
And Sir Alex’s younger bro, Martin, has stoked the fire ahead of Saturday’s clash.
He told the Daily Record: “Even if, from my perspective, I hoped Pep might one day come to United, I not only want them to win this one against City, obviously, but my feelings about Mourinho are changing.
“I hope he does well, I certainly wish him well. While there were some things which, in the past, I didn’t like about him, so long as he’s successful in the ‘United way’ he’ll get my backing.
