“Don’t be afraid to replace LVG with Mourinho by Summer”, former striker urges the Red Devils

Louis van Gaal doesn’t seem to have impressed another ex-Manchester United player enough to earn another season at the Old Trafford dugout. With the likes of Scholes, Rio and Neville having been openly critical of the Dutchman’s methods and philosophy at Manchester United, it is becoming the general consensus that most of the club’s former players really want him out of the club. The Latest to express his views is Teddy Sheringham, and the treble-winning striker believes a change must be made if the club wants to start winning the trophies again.

But Sheringham offers the unconventional United way as aa solution – Mourinho coaching the club. It is widely believed that the only reason Ed Woodward is yet to confirm the Portuguese appointment is because of his track records. Having left Madrid and Chelsea in some dressing room unrest before leaving, the likes of Sirs Alex and Charlton aren’t keen to have him take charge of the club, as his style of coaching and behavior aren’t befitting of a Manchester United’s coach.

Sheringham, who once played alongside Giggs, however insists only a top coach like Jose is needed by Summer after the club approaches the 3rd season without any silverware. The one-time England international and former Stevenage coach says the progress at United is hard to see, and van Gaal shouldn’t be allowed to spend next season as the side’s manager. Mou has been constantly linked with the United job, with many reports talking about the former Inter Milan’s coach’s transfer plans for next season once he is confirmed as coach. A top-four finish is the only saving grace the incumbent handler has, and anything less than that could see Mourinho arrive, against all odds.
