Pat Nevin makes bold prediction about Jose Mourinho an Man United
Pat Nevin says Jose Mourinho would almost guarantee the arrival of trophies at Manchester United
Pat Nevin believes that the appointment of Jose Mourinho at Manchester United would almost guarantee trophies for the Red Devils.
The Red Devils are expected to appoint Mourinho as the club’s new manager following the sacking of Louis van Gaal on Monday.
Mourinho’s future has been a relentless source of speculation since his sacking by Chelsea back in December.
Now, it appears the Portuguese coach is on course to be named as United’s new manager, despite Van Gaal leading the Red Devils to FA Cup glory on Saturday.
And Nevin feels that Mourinho’s imminent arrival at Old Trafford is sure to help the club challenge for the top honours once again.
Speaking to BBC Sport, Nevin said: “From the very start of his career in coaching he has had this incredible self-belief, great knowledge and incredible attention to detail, but also this ability to think outside the box in a way some managers don’t.
“He’s very willing to change things and adapt things in more complex ways when he has to and when it has to be simple, he will be simple.
“He is also very good at the mind games, he understands the business of the game and every single part of the game you need to know he knows as well as anyone else.
“He covers every single base and they are all completely secondary to the home base, which is trophies and nobody but nobody in world football brings in the trophies like Jose Mourinho.”
United won their first trophy since Sir Alex Ferguson’s departure on Saturday as they beat Crystal Palace 2-1 to win the FA Cup.
Mourinho was sacked by Chelsea after their disastrous start to the campaign.
