“Yes, I do see similarities. They both have an aura about them, but that comes from the success they have had. They demand that the players respond and they demand respect. In the short space of time I have worked with Louis, you can see why he has been a success. He is infectious. Did the Mexico game at the World Cup remind me of anything? Yes, because we are also a team who historically never give up. I think that’s down to mentality, it’s down to fitness and it’s down to the decision-making of a manager. If he can bring on a sub who changes a game – like Huntelaar in that game – that’s down to good decision-making and it is what makes top managers. If it had gone wrong, he would have had to face the consequences, but he fully backed his decision-making and that what he was doing was right. That’s what you’ve got to do. You have to do that if you are manager of Manchester United. You have to make decisions and you have to put them into practice like that.”
