The news that Pep Guardiola will replace Manuel Pellegrini at Manchester City at the end of the season came as a bitter blow to Manchester United supporters.
Guardiola, widely regarded to be the best manager in the world, will likely take City to the next level in terms of the Champions League.
Meanwhile, Man United are in disarray under the leadership of Louis van Gaal, with the team’s lack of identity there for all to see. Supporters expressed their dismay after hearing the news:
So City have the better squad,Youth Academy,financial clout and now manager by leaps and bounds. Christ. You gone an fucked it up @ManUtd .

Gigantic summer for United now with Pep's arrival confirmed at City. Honestly wish I could say I had faith in the board to not muck it up.

#mufc left behind again. Missed out on Guardiola twice. Ignored Mourinho twice. And overlooked Klopp when he was available. Cash over glory.

City now have everything needed to be successful in the coming years and United are in danger of being left behind.
Jose Mourinho is ready and apparently willing to take over at United in the event of van Gaal leaving the club and you get the sense that it is the best step that they can take in order to catch up with City.
There are question marks over Mourinho’s character but his record speaks for itself and he would undoubtedly get United back to where they belong.
