Football: "I'm impressed with the young boy Iwobi" - Sir Alex Ferguson says

Former Manchester United coach, Sir Alex Ferguson openly recognizes the ability of Nigerian Arsenal player, Alex Iwobi and Arsenal, as one of the top 'aggressive' title contenders this season.

Arsenal is currently second to Manchester City on goal differences and Iwobi has been instrumental giving 3 assists as such, and Sir Alex Ferguson, who won a record 13 Barclays English Premier League titles as United manager, trusts Iwobi has made Arsenal more focused.

"You shouldn't forget Arsenal (in the title race)," Ferguson said in an interview with German magazine, Kicker.
"The team is more sturdy, they've got better and more aggressive. I'm impressed with the young boy Iwobi."
He likewise applauded Liverpool's manager Jurgen Klopp and Jose Mourinho and gave his say on who he believes are title contenders.

"It can happen that big clubs lose it (their identity). For two decades, Liverpool changed managers without building their own identity."
"You can now well and truly sense that you have to count them in this year. You can see Klopp's dedication on the sideline - I'm convinced his work in training is similar. He's a strong personality. That's absolutely vital at a big club."
"I think there are five potential candidates," he said. "Manchester City as favourites, Tottenham and Liverpool, but also United are still there if we get some consistency soon. Even when you are trailing by six, eight points, it's still possible to catch one or two teams." 
"Guardiola's skills are beyond debate, Antonio Conte is getting Chelsea on track, but Mourinho can also rival Guardiola - he's won the Champions League with two different clubs and titles in three different countries."
 "For my money Mauricio Pochettino has fantastic potential. Spurs have a good mix of youth and experience. Top players like [Harry] Kane or [Eric] Dier were injured but they're still in a good position."
