The jury is still out on Jose Mourinho at Manchester United.
The Red Devils have suffered their worst league start since 1989, hence why the Portuguese is still dividing opinion among the Old Trafford faithful.
Of course, the opinion that matters most belongs to the United hierarchy, and it seems the club’s chiefs are extremely happy with their appointment of the Special One.
According to the Mirror, they believe they have finally found the long-term replacement for Sir Alex Ferguson after the failed experiments of the David Moyes and Louis van Gaal eras.
And while Mourinho has never lasted more than three years at any of his previous major clubs – Porto, Chelsea, Inter Milan, and Real Madrid – United are hoping he’ll stay in the dugout for an unprecedented 10 years.
To be fair, results have picked up in recent weeks, the 2-0 win over West Brom their fourth in a row in all competitions.
This could be Mourinho’s toughest ask yet as he’ll have to prove he’s not a quick-fix merchant, but it’s hard to imagine him staying anywhere for ten years and building a legacy.
