Deco: With Mourinho Manchester United will be back to the top

Jose Mourinho is the man Manchester United need to get them back fighting at the top of the Premier League, according to Deco.

Since the retirement of Sir Alex Ferguson, the Red Devils have failed to win a trophy and are languishing outside of the Champions League spots in the Premier League, with the pressure very much on Louis van Gaal.

Reports suggest the Dutchman will be replaced by Mourinho imminently and Deco, who was a fulcrum of the Porto side that won the Uefa Cup and Champions League under the former Chelsea and Real Madrid boss, believes that the out-of-work manager would allow the Old Trafford club to regain their former status.

“United need to be back at a high level and Mourinho is the man to do that,” he toldSquawka.

“He will bring their confidence again, for the players, for the fans, for the people. You cannot win something without it.

“He will change them a lot.”
