Cameras captured Ferguson and Mourinho in a chit-chat as they sat beside each other ahead of kick-off.

The duo looked excited, as it is believed they must have discussed everything about football. They later posed for a picture as Mourinho said:

"With the Scottish legend. I have to be with them! Great Man."

Regarded as the greatest manager of all time, Ferguson certainly had the better of it in England, winning numerous trophies during a 26-year stay before he retired in 2013.

What Mourinho said about Alex Ferguson

In 2017, Mourinho branded Sir Alex as 'special'. He told Clare Balding for a BT Sport via Independent:

"Everything, his talent, the time he put his talent at the service of Manchester United and football in general.
"The passion that he has put in to everything, and after that in private moments, obviously, a good friend, a good person, a fantastic sense of humour. I like him very, very much."

Fans hail Toni Kroos

Sports Brief earlier reported that Toni Kroos received rave reviews following his masterclass performance for Germany against Scotland in the opening match of Euro 2024.

The Real Madrid midfielder, who came out of retirement for a last dance at the Euros, started the tournament with an almost flawless display.

After the game, football fans took to social media to lavish praise on the 34-year-old, who earlier announced he would call time on his career at the end of the Euros.
