Jose Mourinho receives Man United advice from ex-player after ‘unfinished business’ claim



| Last Updated:


Jose Mourinho believes that he has ‘unfinished business’ at Manchester United and would be open to rejoining the club under the leadership of Sir Jim Ratcliffe.

That’s according to a recent report from MailOnline which detailed the Portuguese manager’s intent after he was sacked from AS Roma at the start of this year.

It was added that the 61-year-old is ‘keen’ to work under the United structure that INEOS and Ratcliffe are set to bring in within the coming months.

Mourinho won two major trophies during his time at Old Trafford but was released from his duties in December 2018 after a defeat to Liverpool.

Whilst it appears that Mourinho is open to the challenge if Erik ten Hag is let go at the end of the season, his former Chelsea defender Glen Johnson does not believe that the opportunity is the right move.

The former Premier League defender has suggested that there is something wrong at Old Trafford and that Mourinho would still have similar issues to the ones he had during his first period in charge of the club.

Speaking to Betfred, Johnson said: “He’s obviously a fantastic manager and regardless of whether there’s any substance to these rumours or not, there’s definitely some unfinished business between himself and Manchester United because he doesn’t usually go to these sorts of clubs and fail.

“If he went back, it would be no different to the club that he left in the first place because the squad still isn’t good enough and they’re not performing well on a consistent basis.

“However, Manchester United is still a giant of a football club and on paper, their team looks pretty bloody good, but something isn’t right there.”
