Chelsea legend backs Jose Mourinho for United job


Frank Lampard played under the Portuguese in both his spells at Stamford Bridge

Frank Lampard has backed his former coach Jose Mourinho to be a success at Old Trafford, should be take the job.

There has been mass speculation around the media this week that Mourinho and his representatives have already agreed to take over at United next season.

With Champions League football slipping away, and a string of poor performances at home, it appears Louis van Gaal will not be in the hot seat next season.

Mourinho to Manchester

Speaking on ITV’s This Morning, Lampard said: “I haven’t spoken to him much, only briefly when he left Chelsea.

“There’s a bit of a merry-go-round of managers at the minute and I think he’ll probably sit tight for a while and then will end up at a big club somewhere, because he’s a great manager.”

When asked would Mourinho be interested in the United job the former Chelsea and England said: “I think it’s a possibility.

“If Louis van Gaal goes on, which I think he’s said he’s going to leave at the end of the season at the latest, I think Mourinho’s the type of manager that will certainly come into their thinking.

“He could certainly handle a club like that, that’s what he’s about.”
