Does he get the thumbs up from the fans?
Jose Mourinho last night said he wants to succeed Sir Alex Ferguson as manager of Manchester United.
The former Chelsea coach, who lifted last season’s Serie A title at Inter Milan, issued a come-and-getme plea to the Old Trafford hierarchy when Fergie retires.
Mourinho, who last night exchanged striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic for Barcelona’s Samuel Eto’o plus £40million and former Arsenal winger Alexander Hleb in the deal of the summer, said: “I would consider going to Manchester United. but United have to consider if they want me to succeed Sir Alex Ferguson. If they do, then of course.
“I like England, where the fans are very passionate and make a game a beautiful occasion with such an incredible atmosphere.” (Daily Mirror)
