Mourinho Clear Favourite For Next Utd Boss

Mourinho Clear Favourite For Next Utd Boss


(Apologies for the earlier article, the all important links didn't work)

Jose Mourinho is the 5/4 favourite with Paddy Power to be the long-awaited successor to Sir Alex Ferguson at Old Trafford. With reports that next season will be his last the Special One is the top of our betting. Jose is biding his time at Inter yet openly unhappy with life at The San Siro. Everyone knows its Fergies job he wants next.

The big wigs at Old Trafford have started the search for Fergie's heir whether they'll be able to handle the ego of The Special One remains to be seen. So they may well opt for another Scot and reunite David Moyes with Wayne Rooney

Mourinho is followed in the market by Moyes and Martin O'Neill at 6/1 and 11/2 in what the early betting suggests could be a four horse race. Pep Guardiola, who may want a new challenge after winning everything at Barcelona, makes up Paddy Power's leading quartet at 15/2.

However there are plenty of big name managers in the world game that would fancy such a big job including former United player Laurent Blanc and England manager Fabio Capello at 18/1 and Guus Hiddink at 20/1 whilst there are also several names from United's recent past that could put themselves forward including Steve Bruce, Steve McClaren, Carlos Queiroz, Mark Hughes, Roy Keane and Ole Gunnar Solskjaer at various prices starting from 20/1 for Bruce.

It would take a big personality not to be daunted by the challenge of taking over from such a successful manager as Fergie but that's Jose to a tee. However if the United bigwigs believe Mourinho is too short-termist by nature they could look to a Moyes or an O'Neill who have taken a similar path to the top as Fergie himself did all those years ago in Scotland.

Blanc and Ole are my choices unless we can get Hiddink! Out of the rest Mourinho, capello and Guardiola are more than capable but I am not so sure if it will be a long term solution. Moyes has the experience and I think can handle the pressure of being at United, not so sure how popular a choice he will be though.

Moyes or Mourinho. Moyes has done so well with the money he's had available to him and that's the kind of manager we will need in the times we are facing. Mourinho because he basically guarantees trophies despite him getting them with the most dull football... But the win always comes first

Zae and Site Staff, can you please put up a poll asking United fans if they think Mourinho is the best candidate to succeed Ferguson with a simple Yes or No response type. I'm curious to see what the collective sentiment here at Vital ManU is. Thanks.
