Manchester United are making progress under Jose Mourinho and are “unlucky” not to be challenging Chelsea, says their former boss Sir Alex Ferguson. Ferguson, 75, stepped down in 2013 but retains close ties to Old Trafford and attends most games.

“I think he has done a great job,” said the Scot in an exclusive interview with BBC Sport.

Ferguson also explained why he thinks Wayne Rooney’s United goalscoring record will never be broken.

Jose Mourinho became Manchester United’s third manager since Ferguson retired when he replaced Louis van Gaal in May.

Although he won his opening three games in charge, Mourinho’s team collected just six points from their next seven Premier League matches.
