The Chosen One would like to be the one chosen to take the reins after the departure of Sir Alex.
Jose Mourinho told the Daily Mirror, “I would consider going to Manchester United but United have to consider if they want me to succeed Sir Alex Ferguson. If they do, then of course.”
This by no means signals the end of the 23 year-old legacy of Ferguson, but at 67, the end may be insight even if it is a few titles away. United must find a large ego once the manager applications start rolling in, and Mourinho has assured the football world that his ego rivals the biggest in the game. This may be the right fit, and he may be worthy of such an honor.
His last quote was my favorite, and proves my point. Speaking of his “divorce” with Chelsea he says this: “Since I left I became champion again but they have not been champions again. I keep on winning and they don’t.” Classic.
