Pat Nevin has told Manchester United supporters that Jose Mourinho is the best manager if the Red Devils want to win silverware regularly.

The Red Devils lost 1-0 to Chelsea FC in the FA Cup final at Wembley after Eden Hazard scored a first-half winner at Stamford Bridge.

Manchester United finished the season without a trophy following their premature exits in the Champions League and the League Cup.

The 20-time English champions finished in second place in the Premier League table but 19 points adrift of champions Manchester City.

Mourinho has come under pressure following Manchester United’s mixed second season under the Portuguese head coach.

Former Chelsea FC star Nevin believes Mourinho is the right manager for Manchester United to win the silverware.

“I am not going to be too harsh about Mourinho,” Nevin told BBC Radio 5 Live.

“Mourinho is the closest you can get to absolutely nailed on silverware every year apart from this year.”

Manchester United haven’t won the Premier League title since 2013 when Sir Alex Ferguson was still in charge at Old Traffiord.

The Red Devils were 1-0 winners against Huddersfield Town in their final Premier League game of the 2017-18 season.

Manchester United signed Alexis Sanchez in a swap deal from Arsenal in the January transfer window.
