Sir Alex Ferguson

IT IS NEARLY confirmed that Sir Alex Ferguson will be replaced by David Moyes, Everton FC boss. There was a list of some prominent managers speculated to replace Fergie at Man U.
Some proposed Jose Mourinho, Ryan Giggs, Gary Neville and the current Borrusia Dortmund Coach.

On my side David Moyes is not the correct man there. I think Jose could be given the shoes of Sir Alex for the betterment of the team.

 One of Sir Alex happy moments.

Other people see Mourinho as unfit for the position because he has a tendency of shifting among different clubs after some few years. He started at FC Porto,
then Chelsea FC, then Inter Milan, and eventually at Real Madrid.

I think it is time for the management and the Board of Man U to think of a different tradition of coaching the team. They should not concentrate on looking for the coach who will be at Man U for  10 or 15 or 26 years like Fergie.

They should read the signs of the times. It is better they take Mourinho for immediate results and trophies. If he goes after 4  or 3 years they should evaluate the
decision of taking him as a team coach by the total number  of trophies he has taken.

It is not easy to get a man like Fergie. Fergie was a very strong and conservative Team coach. He knows how to analyse the situation before the match and react accordingly. No wonder in 26 years has a lot of success.

Take Mourinho, then Hiddink then Rijkaard, then Guardiola. These people will bring glory at Man United. These people  are approximately same as Mourinho in that after they have brought trophies, they quit.

Giggs, Neville, Ole Gunnar are nice managers but experience matters a lot when it comes to winning trophies. These people should start coaching Getafe or Nantes or FC Cologne or West Ham or even Boavista to gain experience before they are given
bigger roles like coaching Man U.
