'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Mourinho Offers Himself, Yet Again

Jose Mourinho has once again confirmed that he would love to manage Manchester United once Sir Alex Ferguson finally decides to retire. He's openly selling himself to us - but are United buying him?

'I would consider going to Manchester United but United have to consider if their want me to succeed Sir Alex Ferguson,' he said.

'If they do, then of course.'

IF - and it's a big if. Sir Bobby Charlton had said earlier that he didn't want Mourinho to succeed Fergie and a large number of fans are firmly against him, myself included. But I must admit that his constant flirting has become very funny - is Italy that bad, that he's desperate to return to the Premier League, to the only club which is big enough for his massive ego?

I personally would like him as United next manager. Undefeated at home has a nice ring.

When fergies time is up, I think Mourinho would be the man to steady the ship. He'd make sure we were solid at home, keep the players in line and keep the trophies coming in - then when we find a manager who plays 'united style' football he won't have the poison chalice of following the greatest manager ever. I'm not sure Mourinho would do anything for our style of play or our youth development policies; but when fergie retires there will be a HUGE hole at the heart of this club. In the short term, the only thing big enough to fill that hole is Mourinho's ego!

I agree with tuscan,its obvious when Sir Alex does decide to leave we will require a person who can handle the media pressure,a person who can command respect from his players,from his fellow managers,a person who won't be shy to take tuff decisions and the list just goes on.... but whatever we say about him,he is the only one that comes close or matches Sir Alex in mind games,in personality,in ego,the only downfall is his reluctance to give kids a chance and his negative style of football.

I'd like him to succeed Fergie, I cant see anyone else managing at the moment who would thrive under the pressure of managing United and succeeding Fergie.

Mourinho is a class manager. Anyone who says otherwise knows nothing about football. That said, I really think this could happen. As a Chelsea supporter, I hope I'm wrong.

Youth development policies? You mean the policy whereby you buy in unknown foreign prospects and then claim they came through your academy? Oh, and whoever succeeds Fergie is a dead man walking, so Mourinho would be a fool to take the job until you've got through at least a couple of managers.

Mourinho has the style! look at his Porto days, they played good attacking football. It just depends how the players given and how he thinks he can build around them.

he'll do you short term until his impatience gets the better of him and he'll be off looking for another challenge!
