'Pep Should Be At Man Utd, Not Mourinho'

A Manchester United legend, who won four Premier League titles, believes Pep Guardiola should be manager of the Red Devils instead of Jose Mourinho.

French legend Eric Cantona spent five years at United before eventually retiring from football in 1997, and to this day, is still credited for the role he played in the club's revival in the 1990s.

Speaking on the state of the current team, Cantona did not mince his words on the side's style of play, saying Guardiola should be in charge of the club, not Mourinho.

"It's not so good," he told the Daily Mail.

"But it is early in the season... too early to tell. Manchester United is a great club and will always be great. They will win things, I know they will.

"But the way they play? Not good. The manager has them playing the wrong way for the fans. No fun, no creativity.

"I like Mourinho. He has a good personality but not for United – they should have Guardiola as coach. He should be there, but he is doing magic with that other club. The club I cannot name.

"Listen. I joke about Manchester City but they are playing great football. It's just that I think Guardiola should be at United.

"He is the spiritual child of Johan Cruyff – he played under Cruyff at Barcelona and learned everything from him. He's the only person who should be at United."

Guardiola was linked with United before he accepted City's offer to manage the club in 2016.
