Formal Offer To Queiroz

Formal Offer To Queiroz

Portuguese club Benfica have made a formal approach to Carlos Queiroz as they want him to be their next manager.

Sir Alex's assistant has previously denied that he held talks with Benfica as had been reported and stated that he had no interest in taking over at the Stadium of Light at the moment.

However, according to press reports emanating from Portugal, Benfica does not give up: they have now made a formal offer to Queiroz and have given him two weeks to reply.

The club is yet to speak on the matter in hand but it is understood that Sir Alex will cover the issue in his usual Friday afternoon press conference.

As someone who repeatedly called for Queiroz's head in previous seasons, I was forced to admit that I was wrong and Fergie was right to trust him. His influence allowed to land and then keep players like Ronaldo, Nani and Anderson and it seems that the experimenting with 4-2-3-1 and 4-5-1 and 4-3-3 for which he was thought to be responsible, has finally paid off.

United now very rarely play 4-4-2 but are a very formidable unit and though of course Fergie is rigthly lauded for his adaptability, Queiroz deserves credit, too. So, what I'm getting at is that I'd loath to lose him now - and I'm almost certain Fergie feels the same way.

I don't think he'll go after his experience with Real.Fergie has him earmarked as his replacement and he's been a big part of our transition over the last couple of years.He's tactically astute which means alot in the modern game.I'm hoping he stays.

Your wrong to think Queiroz wouldn't leave because of what happened at Real because he would leave for sure. However he has helped build a United team that is on the verge of greatness and will mostly stay for it and stay for Fergie's job.

Not to mention, him leaving would likely unsetting the Portuguese players.

Wouldn't be surprised to see him take this. There is no certainty that he would even be offered Ferguson's job when he steps down, which may take another 10 years! Queiroz isn't young and I think he will need to look at making a name for himself as a manager - Benfica is a pretty big team.
