Rory McIlroy begs Jose Mourinho to become Man United manager

Rory McIlroy wants sacked Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho at Manchester United

Rory McIlory has taken to Twitter to beg Jose Mourinho to take over the reins at Manchester United after Chelsea sacked the Portuguese manager on Thursday.

The 52-year-old head coach parted company with the defending Premier League champions after Chelsea suffered their ninth defeat of the season at Leicester City on Monday night.

Mourinho guided the west London side to double glory last season after Chelsea beat Tottenham Hotspur 2-0 in the League Cup final in March before the Blues won the Premier League title by an eight-point margin in May.

United are currently winless in five games in all competitions under Louis van Gaal following a 2-1 defeat by promoted side Bournemouth at Vitality Stadium in the Premier League on Saturday evening.

The Red Devils also crashed out of the Champions League last week after a 3-2 loss to Wolfsburg in Germany.

McIlroy goaded Mourinho after Chelsea’s 3-1 loss to Liverpool at Stamford Bridge earlier this season, but the Ryder Cup star dramatically changed his tact after the manager’s Chelsea sacking.

United are in fourth place and five points behind surprise leaders Leicester City.
