Former Chelsea striker Eidur Gudjohnsen believes Jose Mourinho can lead Manchester United back to the top of the Premier League.
The Icelandic star worked under Mourinho when he first arrived in England and found huge success in the early days of his reign at the Chelsea.
Mourinho has replaced Louis van Gaal at Old Trafford and as a Chelsea fan Gudjohnsen insists it hurts to see the Portuguese boss managing at Old Trafford.
“Unfortunately for Chelsea, as a Chelsea fan, Jose Mourinho can lift Manchester United back to the top,” he said.
“It’s not a surprise, the way things panned out, but it’ll not be… it’ll hurt a little bit. Put it that way.”
Mourinho has won silverware at every club he’s managed and there’s no doubt he’ll be looking to get the club back to success after disappointing tenures under van Gaal and David Moyes.
Mourinho will make United well worth watching next season and it will be good to see him install a winning mentality back into Old Trafford.
He has a point to prove as his reputation took a hit after a poor start to the season at Chelsea last year but he has everything in place to be successful and there is massive hope he’ll able to restore United to glory.
