According to the Mirror, Carragher stated that Jose Mourinho will ‘do it his way’ as he tries to return to club to its glory days.
Carragher went onto praise Mourinho for his ability to nullify opposition teams however, the Champions Leauge winner stated that Mourinho may not play in the ‘United way’ during his spell in charge of the Red Devils.
“How many times has he done it? There s no one better in world football at nullifying the opposition and stopping a team,” Carragher was quoted as saying by the Mirror.
“He’s a man who has won two European Cups and titles all over the world – he is going to do it his way. It may not be the Manchester United way, but it’s not about how you play, it’s about winning trophies and challenging for the league.”
Man United legend Ryan Giggs – who was co-hosting with Carragher – stated that United has to ‘accept’ Mourinho’s style if they are to win trophies.
