Former Leeds player Olivier Dacourt has claimed that Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho is the best person in the current market.
The Portuguese manager has faced some criticism of late with many pundits suggesting that he has not evolved with the modern game.
The rumours all began when Chelsea sacked Mourinho for the second time after some poor performances in the league before he eventually joined the Red Devils.
The Blues sudden decline in the competition led to many critics claiming he was no longer a good coach and has had his tactics found out.
Dacourt is one of the few people who aren’t associated with United who still believes Jose is a top manager if not the top manager in the world.
According to The Sport Review, Olivier said to bWIN: “He remains a great coach, all the great coaches are engaged, and I do not see anyone on the market stronger than him in his place.”
Since arriving at Old Trafford Jose Mourinho has hardly shown himself to be an outdated coach, managing to help stabilise the club whilst simultaneously winning the Carabao Cup and Europa League.
His second season in charge of Manchester United can yet prove signs of progress should the players succeed in securing a second placed finish and perhaps winning the FA Cup.
Either way, it’s clear that Mourinho is one of the best managers around but of course that doesn’t mean he’s free of criticism.
The former Real Madrid boss has endured the wrath of United fans for his inability to get results against the so called top six teams in the league.
His record with the club has been poor and supporters have yet to see a true, characteristic Jose tactical masterclass besides a match vs Chelsea.
