Manchester United legend raises doubts over Jose Mourinho's appointment


Former Manchester United midfielder Paul Ince says he prefers to wait before judging the club's decision to hire Jose Mourinho.

The Portuguese was officially confirmed as Manchester United manager last week after signing a three-year contract with the club.

He is yet to make any new signings although recent reports have claimed that he wants to sign Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Antonie Griezmann and Kevin Gameiro.

"I like to think they've got the right man, but you never know," Ince is quoted as saying by Sky Sports.

"You hear chairmen saying we've got the right man here and six months down the line they lose their job.

"You see it all the time. I'm sure when Van Gaal went to Man United everybody said 'yeah, we've got the right man'.

"He was successful at Ajax and Barcelona but two seasons down the line he's got the sack.

"Mourinho's CV speaks for itself. He's won all over the place, Champions Leagues, titles and he's a winner. He knows how to win.

"So from a credential point of view you've got to say he's the right man, but we'll have to see what happens in the next couple of months.

"How is Mourinho going to play? He likes his experienced players. What does that say about the young players?

"His style of football really at the back end of last year wasn't great and this is the biggest thing with Manchester United fans, they want the Man United style of football."
