New Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho wants former Red Devils defender Rio Ferdinand on his coaching staff, the Sun has revealed.
With Ryan Giggs expected to leave the club, the Portuguese wants another legend alongside him to properly understand the atmosphere at the club.
At the end of last week, Ferdinand was full of praise for the former Chelsea boss.
"This is Jose Mourinho's most exciting and most challenging job yet," the Englishman wrote on his Facebook page.
"The first thing he needs to do is instill a 'winning mentality' back into the club. One thing I can tell Manchester United fans is that they have got themselves a true winner in all aspects. His CV shows success.
"After his recent unsuccessful time at Chelsea in the final year, I can assure you this winner is now a wounded animal which makes him such a mouth-watering appointment.
"He will be desperate to silence the media who have been writing and saying negative things about him and will be as focused as ever."
