Cantona: Pep Should be Training MU Instead of Mourinho

Pep Guardiola.

MANCHESTER, NNC - Manchester United legend Eric Cantona apparently did not like Jose Mourino's presence at Manchester United. Cantona even bluntly said MU management should have hired Josep Guardiola as manager, not Mourinho.

MU's trip in the Premier League this season has not been smooth sailing. The Red Devils have only won six points after four games. MU experienced two successive defeats, which caused them to now be on the 10th position on the standings.

According to Cantona, who has been with "The Red Devils" for five years and had served as captain, Mourinho is not the right person to train MU. He said Guardiola should be the one who should train MU.

"I like Mourinho. He has a good personality but not for United - they (MU) should have Guardiola as coach," Cantona was quoted as saying by OneFootball.

"He (Guardiola) should be at MU, but he does magical things at other clubs," Cantona continued.

Mourinho has a reason of why his team's pace is a bit late at the start of this season. He repeatedly complained about the club's transfer activities which were unable to buy the players he needed especially in the back position.
