Sir Alex Ferguson will quit Manchester United at the end of next
season and Jose Mourinho will succeed him, according to reports.
The Daily Star - stick with us for a minute here - claim that
Ferguson has decided to quit United after 25 years at the club and that
Mourinho has already been lined up to take his place.
The curious thing about this piece of gossip is that the Star do
not claim Ferguson is 'set to' or is 'likely to' quit in 2011. They
simply say he 'will'.
And they are equally certain that Mourinho, who first mooted the
idea of managing at Old Trafford in 2004, will take over from Ferguson.
The Portugueser is currently in charge of Inter Milan but has
made it clear that he is unhappy in Italian football.
