Nemanja Vidic makes prediction about next Man United manager

Nemanja Vidic has his say about Manchester United's next manager

Nemanja Vidic believes that Ryan Giggs would be perfectly suited to the Manchester United managerial job.

There has been plenty of speculation about who could be appointed as the Red Devils’ next manager in recent weeks following United’s stuttering form under current boss Louis van Gaal.

Jose Mourinho has been regularly touted as a possible candidate to take over at Old Trafford should Van Gaal leave the club this summer.

The Portuguese coach commented about his future this week and said that he was hoping to have found a new club by July.

Former United midfielder Giggs has also been suggested as a long-term successor to Van Gaal at the club.

And former United captain Vidic feels that the ex-Wales international would be a good candidate for the job.

Speaking to BBC Sport, Vidic said: “I like the idea of Giggsy, but Mourinho has had success in the past.

“It’s a hard choice. Is Giggsy ready or not? He knows. The club knows. I believe they will have an honest conversation.

“I want someone who knows the club and does the best for the club. I shared a dressing room with him. I know he will do that.”

On Mourinho, he added: “Mourinho plays football in a certain way, that is well known, but I definitely respect Mourinho as a manager. He is one of the greatest ever, along with Pep Guardiola and Sir Alex Ferguson.”
