Gordon Hill tells United In Focus his choice to replace Mourinho at Old Trafford
Former Manchester United star Gordon Hill has told United In Focus who his choice of manager would be to replace Jose Mourinho.
United are struggling at present and have not won a home game since the opening day of the season.
Jose Mourinho is under real pressure and fans are getting fed up with the dull football served up by the Red Devils.
Responding to a tweet from United In Focus, former player Gordon Hill told us that his choice to replace Mourinho would be Bournemouth boss Eddie Howe.
Hill told us: “All the talk about foreign managers, I would give Eddie Howe a chance, if it comes up. He has earned the right to challenge with a big club. You may be surprised with bigger resources.
“(We) took a chance with Fergie, I know I was at the club, but look what happened.
“I am not saying get rid of this man but if it happens.”
Does Howe have Old Trafford credentials?
Howe has been in charge at Bournemouth since 2012 and led them to Championship promotion in 2015.
He has helped the Cherries become an established Premier League side and has an attacking ethos of football.
Taking over at United and dealing with the expectation, egos, and sizeable transfer budget would be a totally different challenge.
Yet United have also seen that big name managers do not guarantee success either, with Louis van Gaal and now Jose Mourinho.
A bold next step is required, whoever may end up succeeding Mourinho when his spell in charge comes to it’s inevitable end.
