Manchester United legend Bryan Robson believes Jose Mourinho has the right credentials for the "near impossible" task of one day succeeding manager Sir Alex Ferguson.

Ferguson has celebrated his 70th birthday and the 25th anniversary of his appointment at Old Trafford this season and is showing little sign of slowing down. Because of that, Robson, Ferguson's former captain, does not think the club have even thought about the identity of their next manager.

But Robson knows the time will come when the issue has to be dealt with and he feels Real Madrid's former Chelsea boss would be a good fit. The former England captain said: "How do you replace Sir Alex Ferguson? It is near enough impossible. Mourinho is definitely one who would be up at the top of the list. His record speaks for itself."
