10 Reasons Mourinho is the wrong man for Manchester United | He will not stay for long

Jose Mourinho is expected to replace Louis van Gaal as Manchester United boss this week, but here are 10 reasons why the Old Trafford outfit might want to reconsider.


Ever since taking over Real Madrid in 2010, Mourinho has not evolved in a strategic sense.

While his favoured 4-2-3-1 system is still popular in the Premier League, none of Barcelona, Bayern Munich, Paris Saint-Germain, Juventus or Atletico Madrid use it. Mourinho’s philosophy of a rigid formation protected by a flat back four and double midfield pivot has become predictable and overly pragmatic.


One of the principle reasons for sacking Van Gaal is his sterile brand of possession football. It is farcical, then, that in a bid to bring the buzz back to Old Trafford, United have now turned to a coach renowned for a defence-orientated, counterattacking game.

Against top opposition, Mourinho’s teams nearly always set out to destroy rather than create. Hardly ‘the Manchester United way’.
