Manchester United Set To Appoint This Former Everton Coach To Replace Mourinho
Belgium manager, Roberto Martinez, has become a shock choice to take over from Jose Mourinho at Manchester United.
The choice was made by former Aston Villa, Everton and Scotland striker, Andy Gray who provided reason Martinez would be the perfect replacement for Mourinho.
Martinez is currently the manager of Belgium and Gray said that he has all the characteristics and experience needed for the Manchester United job.
Asked to give reason for his choice, Gray told beIN SPORTS, “Why? They have tried experienced, talented coaches already, like (Louis) Van Gaal and Mourinho.
“It hasn’t worked really for either of them, so far.
“What has Roberto Martinez got? He’s got a wealth of experience of English football, a wealth of experience in the Premier League.
“He has won a major trophy with Wigan, the FA Cup. He’s managed a top-six club in Everton.
“He’s also managed some of the best players in world football for the last two years with Belgium. So that proves he can handle best players.
“He took Belgium to the semi-final of the World Cup on a run over two years where I think they lost one game up until when they entered the World Cup finals.
“You need to be big enough to walk into that club and say ‘I’m not phased by Manchester United’.
“I think he thinks so much of himself that he could do that, that’s what I’m saying.
