Alex Ferguson praised Bayern Munich’s footballing structure as the former Manchester United manager lauded the club’s links to their past.
While United have struggled since Ferguson departed in 2013 – failing to win the Premier League – Bayern continue to dominate the Bundesliga with seven successive titles.
United finished sixth in 2018-19 as they missed out on Champions League qualification, while the Red Devils are still searching for a director of football to assist manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.
And Ferguson hailed Bayern’s hierarchy, which is led by president Uli Hoeness and chairman Karl-Heinz Rummenigge.
“They’re a great club. It’s a club run in the proper foundation of it,” Ferguson told MUTV prior to Sunday’s Treble Reunion game, which United won 5-0 at Old Trafford.
“Former players who run it really, Uli Hoeness and Karl-Heinz Rummenigge, they run the club in the right way and they are always winning the league in Germany. They’re a great club.”
