Fans’ view: Should Jose Mourinho take over at Manchester United?

by Tanveer Arayan

Following Jose Mourinho’s sacking by Chelsea on Thursday, Manchester United fans have turned their thoughts on whether the Portuguese might be a suitable candidate to replace Louis van Gaal at Old Trafford.

Van Gaal is currently under immense pressure at Man United following back to back defeats against Wolfsburg and Bournemouth.

Mourinho suffered a disastrous season with Chelsea prior to his departure but the fact remains that he has won trophies at every club he has managed. United fans had their say on whether Mourinho would be a good fit for the club:


United face a potentially huge decision this summer, with the likes of Jose Mourinho, Pep Guardiola and Carlo Ancelotti all reportedly available.

Mourinho’s reputation has taken a hit this season but he has enjoyed success for the majority of his career. However, he wouldn’t be a long-term option, as his second stint at Chelsea has showed.

Of course, van Gaal doesn’t look like losing his job at United anytime soon but the club would be wise to capitalise on the availability of so many top managers if the team continues to produce turgid performances under the Dutchman.
