Portuguese coach, Jose Mourinho does not want to give advice to Erik ten Hag who will soon become Manchester United coach starting next season. This was revealed by Mourinho when asked for a response to the Red Devils’ decision to recruit the Dutch coach.
Last week, Manchester United announced the decision to sign the Ajax coach as the new permanent manager. Ten Hag will replace Ralf Rangnick at the end of this season. Ten Hag faces the tough task of restoring Manchester United to glory after a ‘collapsed’ season at Old Trafford, where the Red Devils almost certainly failed to qualify for the European Champions League.
“They (Manchester United) were my former club. Not my club. No. I don’t have any suggestions,” he said briefly.
Mourinho had sat in the chair of the Red Devils coach in 2016-2018. During his time at Old Trafford, Mourinho won the 2016-2017 Premier League, FA Community Shield (2016) and Europa League (2016–2017).
Currently, Mourniho is in charge of AS Roma and is preparing to lead the Italian Serie A club to the semifinals of the Europa Conference League against Leicester City, Friday (29/4) early morning WIB.
The 59-year-old has the opportunity to add a trophy to his already flashy CV last year when he led Tottenham to the Premier League Cup final to face Manchester City. But Mourinho was sacked the day before the final at Wembley. (Goal/OL-15)
