Samuel Luckhurst, a journalist from the Manchester Evening News has claimed that Manchester United legends Sir Bobby Charlton, Sir Alex Ferguson and David Gill do not want Jose Mourinho taking the reigns at Old Trafford instead they prefer club legend and Louis van Gaal’s assistant coach Ryan Giggs in the hot seat.

Jose Mourinho is reportedly ready for joining Manchester United in the summer, the same is claimed by the Portuguese’s former club Inter Milan’s president recently. Mourinho even hinted at remaining in England and Manchester United are the only team who are in need of a new manager in the summer. Of course, Chelsea are not going to call him back for the third time, not at least in six months. They are after Diego Simeone.

The reporter claimed the Portuguese is an unwanted figure at the Old Trafford and the Red Devil fans will oppose the decision strongly if the club decides to bring him. We hope he has forgotten that United fans kept ‘JOSE MOURINHO’ scarfs flying at the Old Trafford as an opening to invite the former Porto, Inter, Chelsea and Real Madrid manager.

“Sir Bobby Charlton, Sir Alex Ferguson and even David Gill don’t appear to want Jose Mourinho to become the next Manchester United manager.”

“There’s an awful lot of cheerleading still going on for Ryan Giggs which a lot of Manchester United fans find baffling,”  he told 5 live Sport’s Mark Chapman.

Ryan Giggs is one of the bright choices available, but his inexperience in coaching is a stumbling block for the Welsh man. Also, United are not a club to practice ‘coaching’, the Red Devils knew it more than anyone as they are witnessing the struggles of their another Legend Gary Neville as a manager.
The claims about Sir Bobby Charlton and David Gill’s wishes can not be ruled out completely, but Sir Alex Ferguson is a man who admires the Portuguese tactician and they both have a very good relationship on and off the pitch.
