Eric Cantona believes Portuguese tactician Jose Mourinho is not the right person to lead Manchester United. Mourinho took charge of the 20-time English champions in 2016 and he enjoyed a positive debut season in charge at Old Trafford, winning the Europa League, League Cup and Community Shield.
However, the Red Devils failed to lift a single trophy in the last campaign and things haven’t started off too well for United this term, having taken just six Premier League points from a possible 12 on offer.
Mourinho is under huge pressure to turn things around but club legend Cantona believes a certain Spaniard would be better suited to lead the team.
“I like Mourinho. He has a good personality but not for United – they should have [Pep] Guardiola as coach,” he told the Mail on Sunday. “He should be there, but he is doing magic with that other club. The club I cannot name.
“It is early in the season… too early to tell. Manchester United is a great club and will always be great. They will win things, I know they will. But the way they play? Not good. The manager has them playing the wrong way for the fans. No fun, no creativity.”
