Rio Shouldn't Always Get His Wish!

Rio Ferdinand, apparently, has been badgering Fergie all day long to persuade the boss to field him against Spurs in the Carling Cup final. Rio had an excellent game and United won the cup, much to the delight of the fans and the lad himself.

While granting Ferdinand his wish worked out well on this occasion, he shouldn't always get what he asks for. Recently he commented on the popular topic of Fergie's potential successors and he told us that 'the one name jumping out is JosÚ Mourinho'.

Oh dear. He actually wants Mourinho to replace Fergie. No thanks Rio. I'd rather have a manager who does not have an obvious distrust for youth and flair and who isn't the champion of short-termism.

I think Mourinho would be great. Fergie rates Jose highly I'm sure since Fergie has only won against Mourinho only once. Not to mention I"m sure many United fans would get over the fact he was at Chelsea when United never lose at home.

Mourinho would be great for you. He doesn't stay at clubs for long and nor does he invest in youth. Rather you than us.
