Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho has won two trophies in his first couple of years in charge; while also moving the Red Devils to second in the table.
That won’t stop doubters, though. There are fans aplenty who believe he isn’t good enough to be United gaffer at this point in time. Perhaps the club have been offered an alternative.
Today, Zinedine Zidane stepped down as Real Madrid manager, and pundit Stan Collymore reckons he’d fit United like a ‘hand in glove’. The former Liverpool player also thinks that he’d bring Cristiano Ronaldo and possibly Gareth Bale with him…
Where money is concerned, United wouldn’t mind. They can certainly afford to sack Mourinho and bring in Zidane – who has led his side to three Champions League titles in a row.
I’d have my doubts about bringing in the Frenchman, though. With that squad at his disposal, he should be winning multiple trophies. Don’t forget that FC Barcelona left them for dead in La Liga this season.
Personally, I’d like to see Zizou try his hand elsewhere before moving to the Theatre of Dreams – but I just cannot help but think that he’s destined to fail after what he’s achieved at the Santiago Bernabeu.
Would fit Manchester United hand in glove.
Would take Ronaldo home.
United could afford anyone in the world, plus Zidane is the only manager players would go to over Guardiola arguably.
If United aren't on the phone now, they are daft.
