Avram Grant makes prediction about Jose Mourinho’s Man United rivarly

Avram Grant expects Jose Mourinho to reignite feud with Pep Guardiola if he comes Man United manager

Avram Grant believes Jose Mourinho and Pep Guardiola will reignite their feud if the Portuguese coach takes over at Manchester United next season.

The 53-year-old has been heavily linked with the Old Trafford role over the past couple of months as Louis van Gaal’s United side continue to struggle.

Guardiola is set to take over the reins at Manchester City in the summer when the Spaniard’s contract at Bayern Munich comes to an end.

The former Barcelona manager was bitter rivals with Mourinho during the Portuguese’s time in charge of the Catalan side’s derby rivals, Real Madrid.

Ex-Chelsea manager Grant believes the Premier League will be set for plenty of drama in Manchester if Mourinho is handed the United position.

“I can promise you it will be very interesting if it happens between these two guys. The best thing to predict the future is to see what happened in the past.”

Mourinho was sacked by Chelsea in December and replaced by Guus Hiddink after a run of nine defeats in the Premier League.
