Ferguson is, without a doubt, the most successful Premier League manager, winning 13 titles during his time at Old Trafford - 10 more than his closest challengers, Pep Guardiola, Arsene Wenger, and Jose Mourinho.
The legendary manager has named two young'uns who have impressed him greatly. "On young managers, Eddie Howe had a great period at Bournemouth, for a young manager," the former Aberdeen boss told SPORTbible.
"I think he did very well. Even though he's relegated it doesn't mean to say he's not a good manager, I think he is a good manager. I think the boy [Scott] Parker at Fulham has done a great job. I've watched them a lot and they keep playing their football. They don't change and don't panic. They stick with the beliefs of their manager and I think that's a great indication of how good he is.
Howe's Bournemouth side were relegated last season and missed the chance to bounce straight back after being dumped out of the playoffs by Brentford. The 43-year-old is currently out of a job and is rumoured to be appointed as the new Celtic boss this week.
