Jose Mourinho scarves were once again being sold outside Old Trafford prior to Manchester United’s Europa League clash against FC Midtjylland on Thursday.
The scarves have been spotted outside Old Trafford for a number of weeks now amid rumours that Mourinho is set to replace Louis van Gaal at Man United.
It is a precarious situation, with the man himself recently stating that he didn’t know anything about the speculation.
United have been abysmal for large parts of the campaign and the fact is that Mourinho is a proven, world-class manager.
Van Gaal has been given time and funds to implement his ‘philosophy’ at the club but United appear to have gone backwards under his leadership.
Mourinho has a point to prove following his sacking by Chelsea earlier this term and it is widely believed that he has always had an eye on the United job. Things would certainly look a lot better if Mourinho was in charge on the first day of next season rather than van Gaal.
