For several seasons, there has been plenty of speculation surrounding potential successors to Sir Alex Ferguson. While the Scot shows no signs of slowing down as Manchester United manager, he’s clearly nearing an end of a decorated career at Old Trafford, although it seems as though this chap would like to try and follow a particularly hard act.
Special clubs need special people, according to this football manager, who takes pride in labelling himself as special (even though his team’s performance against United was anything but). The Guardian reports that Jose Mourinho is using Tuesday’s Champions League match against the English champions to present his credentials as a possible successor to Fergie.
“If you want me to rule out ever being Manchester United manager I can’t,” he told the News of the World. “Special clubs need special managers so in theory it could work, but nobody knows what the future is in football.
“The England national team wanted me as coach and that is the biggest job in England, so I am sure when Sir Alex retires they will look at the best managers in the world and I certainly fall into the category.”
Jose Mourinho and Martin O’Neill seem to be the two popular candidates to become the next Manchester United manager, what do the supporters think? Do they like the idea of the former Chelsea gaffer taking charge at Old Trafford, or is his style of play not the United way?
