Jamie Redknapp makes prediction about next Man United manager

Jamie Redknapp tells Manchester United to appoint Jose Mourinho as their new manager this summer

Jamie Redknapp believes that Manchester United should go all out to appoint Jose Mourinho as their next manager in the summer.

The Red Devils have come in for plenty of criticism for their unadventurous style of play this season under current boss Louis van Gaal.

The Dutchman’s future has been a source of speculation in recent weeks, with many media reports claiming that he could be set to leave Old Trafford at the end of the season.

Mourinho has been touted as a possible successor for Van Gaal at Old Trafford following his sacking as Chelsea manager back in December.

And former Liverpool midfielder Redknapp has urged United to move quickly to appoint Mourinho this summer.

Redknapp wrote in his column for Sky Sports: “When the news was announced that Pep Guardiola will join Manchester City in the summer, shockwaves were sent around the Premier League. It was a real statement.

“Manchester United, and Chelsea to some extent, need to respond. The news marked a changing of the guard. United are no longer able to attract any manager, and that would have hit them like a juggernaut. They need to react; they cannot just sit back.

“Ryan Giggs has the makings of a great manager but is he the right man to take the challenge to Pep? At the moment, the answer is no – he hasn’t got the experience.

“They’ve got to get someone that has a proven track record of winning trophies, and that man has to be former Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho.”
