Jose Mourinho can become the new Sir Alex Ferguson at Manchester United, according to Leicester manager Claudio Ranieri.

Ranieri was replaced by Mourinho at Chelsea, before the Portuguese won consecutive league titles.

Mourinho was appointed to replace Louis van Gaal, whose two-year reign ended in disappointment with the club failing to qualify for the Champions League.

Van Gaal’s predecessor David Moyes lasted only ten months in the job, but Ranieri feels that Mourinho is the right man to leave a legacy at Old Trafford.

“Mourinho can be the new Ferguson,” Ranieri said in an interview with Gazzetta dello Sport.

“He will not stay 26 years, but he will leave his imprint.

“Antonio and Chelsea are made for each other. Guardiola seems to be the right man in the right place.”
