In the beginning of this video, one man said of Alex Ferguson as follows:
"You saw where particular individuals were starting to become far too important in their own right and he showed and demonstrated that he could do without them."
What does the underlined part mean? Why is "where" used here?
- the situations in which
in their own right =
- not depending on Alex's status
- regardless of Alex's ability
Does it make sense now?
