Jorge Mendes Takes Swipe At Man United Boss By Saying Club Have Yet To Replace Sir Alex Ferguson
Mendes claims that Manchester United’s executive chairman Ed Woodward can find a way for the club to deliver trophies once more, but has one major issue to contend with:
“It’s completely impossible to find someone like Sir Alex Ferguson because he’s a god, he’s a genius and to find a genius is very difficult,” Mendes told BBC Sport.
Nonetheless, the ‘super agent’ believes that there is only one man whose ingenuity can rival Sir Alex Ferguson’s – and that man is ‘The Special One’ – “You have one in England – Jose Mourinho.”
However, given the Portuguese’s return to and love for Chelsea, Manchester United will have to hope Van Gaal does eventually come up trumps.
