The Special One signed a pre-contract agreement with the Red Devils which is expected to mature into a full-time official offer come July 1 but it seems the pay-out clause for breaching the contract won’t be a problem for Manchester United.
Rumors have it that the youngsters at the Old Trafford doesn’t want Jose. There are fears that the former Chelsea of England’s coach might want a total overhaul of the current squad.
Reports say ‘all the United youngsters want Ryan Giggs to replace the out-going manager Louis Van Gaal.
The team is in doubt, they don’t know Mourinho very well yet.
This could be a big problem for the Old Trafford executives who wouldn’t want a repeat of what transpired between Jose and his former Chelsea players.
Daily Mail confirms:
“I think they don’t believe they will get a chance if he comes in. They talk to the guys at Chelsea and know they never got close – so why would he be any different at United? He’s a businessman.”
But they think Van Gaal is too old to take them on any further.
“A lot of them think he is a grandpa and has an out-of-date management style.”
“A number of players have become frustrated because of the lack of chances under Van Gaal.
“He (Van Gaal) doesn’t speak to the young players and Giggs and [Under 21 manager Warren] Joyce are the only ones who want to encourage the young lads.
“A lot of them would be very happy if Giggs took over because the players can relate to him. They can’t relate to Van Gaal – he’s too old.”
At the moment, Jose Mourinho doesn’t have much to lose if he misses out on the Manchester United job though it would cause him some kind of disrespect on his personality, he will be getting an adequate compensation in a huge package.
In another development, Syria has offered the Special One a coaching job.
The country’s representatives wrote to Jorge Mendes who is Jose’s agent.
The country Syria is about kicking off their third round of Asian qualifying matches for the 2018 World Cup and have lost only three times in the last 12 months.
There’s a great chance that the war-torn country could reach the World Cup in Russia.
If this great achievement comes their way, it will be the first time the country will play in the global round leather game and it would be an honor to have the great one Jose Mourinho lead them on the debut.
