Former Chelsea manager Gianluca Vialli insists Jose Mourinho will succeed at Manchester United

Former Chelsea manager Gianluca Vialli believes Jose Mourinho can meet expectations at Manchester United that David Moyes and Louis van Gaal failed to achieve.

Reports suggest the Portuguese international will take over from the Dutchman as manager at the end of the season.

Mourinho recently hinted he wants his next job to be in England and William Hill have sliced his odds from 2/5 to 1/4 to join Man United. Speaking about Jose, Vialli insists he is the right man to rebuild the club.

“After Ferguson the two managers have not met the expectations of the fans, so the supporters see Mourinho at United,” he said.

“He can bring winning back to the team. I’m curious to see how it would work after all his love for Chelsea.”

Whoever has to follow van Gaal as United manager will be in charge of the club at its most crucial point over the last few decades. After falling from grace following Sir Alex’s retirement, we are a club who now sit on the precipice of falling further.

For three years we have struggled to re-affirm our position as one the best clubs in the world and if we fail to do so again after van Gaal, it’s going to become increasingly more confident to re-establish that identity.

We all laughed and said we would never repeat the mistakes Liverpool made back in the early 1990s but failure to replace van Gaal properly opens us up to that very possibility.
