United - Managerial Quandary

Recently, Jose Mourinho has given the slightest of hints that he`s looking for a return to the Premier League, implying that it is his spiritual home.

Naturally, the tabloid press have been quick to pick up on this and equally as quick to infer that Jose could well be heading for Old Trafford, especially with Sir Alex Ferguson now the wrong side of three score and ten years.

But the United legend that is Gary Neville doesn`t believe that Mourinho, if he does return to the Premier League is Old Trafford bound, remarking to the media,

"There are many great managers and there`s always speculation about who`s going to take over from Sir Alex."

"I`m sure when the time does come, Mourinho is one of the candidates who will be mentioned because of the success he`s had elsewhere."

"He`s a character. You have to respect people for what they do and he`s very good at what he does. He`s been successful wherever he`s been."

"But it doesn`t come into my head at this moment in time as Sir Alex is still going stronger than ever."

"It`s a waste of time to start speculating who will take over from him."

Unless that is, if the word on the street has any serious foundations, that Sir Alex may well call it a day if he secures another Champions League triumph or sets a record of 19 top flight title wins!

I reckon another season or 2 in him yet. It's no question who should take over from him in my mind, undoubtedly Mourinho.

Can you honestly see another manager coming in who wouldn't be overwhelmed by the prospect of replacing United's greatest ever manager, only Mourinho has the ego and belief in himself to replace Fergie.
