Get Jose Mourinho to replace Moyes, says Moran

Former-Manchester United defender Kevin Moran believes the club should approach Jose Mourinho to replace David Moyes after the latter was sacked 10 months into his six-year contract.

Speaking to Newstalk this morning as reported by the Irish Independent, Moran said employing Moyes was always a mistake because he wasn't a big enough name for the job.

And Moran, who played for 10 years at United making 231 league appearances, wants Chelsea boss Mourinho to come in this summer.

"The job was too big for David Moyes," said Moran. "It was a surprise when he got the job in the beginning as there was the option of Mourinho at the same time.

"Manchester United is such a huge club that it needs a manager who knows how to win trophies and who has won them before. Mourinho has proven he can do that."

The case against Mourinho last summer was that he fails to stay at a club for the long-term, and that was a big concern following Sir Alex Ferguson's 26 years at the club.

United wanted stability and Sir Alex Ferguson anointed Moyes as his hand-picked successor, but that association has been terminated after just 10 months.

And Moran believes Mourinho would be willing to commit to a big club like United if he's given full reign to run it as he sees fit.

"It has been said that Mourinho does not stay at clubs long enough but I disagree with that. With Chelsea, he wanted to stay there but Abramovich got rid of him.

"At Inter Milan he was seen as a stop gap. At Real Madrid there was always the problem with the divisions between the Spanish and Portuguese there. But he always said he wanted to come back to England because he loves the support and the media.

"I think he would have loved to be the Manchester United manager. Yes, he shows some petulance on occasion. But what Mourinho does have is an unbelievable ability to win games and win trophies. That is what is Manchester United is all about."
