Mourinho eyes up United job when Sir Alex quits

Jose Mourinho has thrown his hat into the ring to replace Sir Alex Ferguson when he finally leaves Old Trafford.


Has Mourinho got the minerals to replace Ferguson?

The Inter Milan boss says he would jump at the chance to fill the Red Devils' hot seat when 67-year-old Ferguson calls time on his glittering managerial career.

After 23 years at United, Ferguson shows no signs of slowing down, but Mourinho says he would love the chance to continue his love affair with English football, if United chief executive David Gill and the board decided he was the right man to take over.

"I would consider going to Manchester United but United have to consider if they want me to succeed Sir Alex Ferguson,'' he told the Daily Mirror. "If they do, then of course.

"I like England, where the fans are very passionate and make the game a beautiful occasion with such an incredible atmosphere.''

The Portuguese coach isn't lacking in confidence and believes he has the right credentials to take one of the most high-profile jobs in world football.

And he took the opportunity to point to his success with Inter Milan, who retained their Serie A title this year, as a contrast to Chelsea's failure to recapture the Premier League title since his departure in 2007.

"I had many conversations before Chelsea and I decided on a divorce,'' he said. "It was difficult for me because we loved each other but the relationship went in one direction and it was best for everyone.

"Since I left I became champion again but they have not been champions again. I keep on winning and they don't.''
