Our Manchester United supporting punters here inside the Football Transfer Tavern nearly choked on their peanuts, after reading ex-England defender Paul Parker’s column on the Eurosport website.
The former England player suggests that United would be better off bringing in ex-Aston Villa manager Tim Sherwood to Old Trafford between now and the end of the season, and should ultimately not hire Jose Mourinho!
Mourinho to United has been the talk of the Tavern in recent weeks, with the majority of Red Devils fans incredibly excited at the prospect of seeing the ex-Chelsea boss in charge at the club.
Our landlord here in the Tavern thinks Paul Parker’s opinion is an odd one, and argues that Mourinho has all the credentials to excel at Manchester United – he just needs time to bring in the exact players that he wants.
Meanwhile, a few Spurs fans are giggling away to themselves in the corner in the Tavern, with them all agreeing that it would make their year if Sherwood ever joined Man United!
Manchester United fans…… Is Mourinho the right man? Can you envisage him managing your club? Let us know your thoughts and opinions in the comments below!
