Manchester United legend Eric Cantona: I love Jose Mourinho but I would have opted for this man


Manchester United legend Eric Cantona says he would have opted for Pep Guardiola to take over from Louis van Gaal at the club.

The Dutchman was sacked at the end of this season and will be replaced by Portugal's Jose Mourinho.

But despite praising the former Chelsea manager, the Frenchman says Guardiola would have been a better choice.

"I love Jose Mourinho, but in terms of the type of football he plays I don't think he is Manchester United," Cantona is quoted as saying by The Guardian.

"I love his personality, I love the passion he has for the game, his humour. He is very intelligent, he demands 100% of his players. And of course he wins things.

"But I don't think it's the type of football that the fans of Manchester United will love, even if they win. He can win with Manchester United. But do they expect that type of football, even if they win? I don't think so.

"[Pep] Guardiola was the one to take. He is the spiritual son of Johan Cruyff.

"I would have loved to have seen Guardiola in Manchester [United]. He is the only one to change Manchester. He is in Manchester, but at the wrong one."
