Benni Compares Mourinho To Ferguson

Former Bafana Bafana striker, Benni McCarthy is confident Jose Mourinho can bring long-term success to Manchester United and also compared the Portuguese to Sir Alex Ferguson.
 
 
One of Mourinho's criticims in the past was failing to utilise young players at the likes of Chelsea, Inter Milan and Real Madrid.
 
However, the Portuguese tactician has already put his faith in young striker, Marcus Rashford and McCarthy believes his former coach will bring the same aura as legendary coach, Sir Alex Ferguson.
 
"This is the job that's going to change the whole Mourinho perception of not bringing enough young players through and only staying two or three seasons at a club because there's no bigger job than the United job," McCarthy told M.E.N Sport.
 
"He can bring that Sir Alex Ferguson aura back to the club and for the long-term as well. 
 
"He just has to prove to himself he can also go and build a small empire after what Sir Alex did.
 
"You can't replace a man like Jose so I really hope United fans embrace what they have now. I think this is the job he's always waited for."
