Beckham convinced Mourinho and Man Utd 'will work'

Manchester United legend David Beckham is backing Jose Mourinho for success at Old Trafford.

Mourinho replaced Louis van Gaal at Old Trafford in May, with the Portuguese agreeing a three-year contract with the Red Devils.

However, former United and England captain Beckham believes Mourinho’s experience of winning titles all over Europe will help him return United to the summit of English football.

“I fully expect it to work,” Beckham told Sky Sports News HQ. 

“With Jose leaving Chelsea and now coming back into the Premier League with United, for me it is a great move.”

“I had huge respect for Van Gaal, but it did not work out the way people expected it to. But I think at the end of the day, now it is a new start for United.”

“We have had a couple over the last three or four years, which is not the Manchester United style, who are used to a manager like Sir Alex Ferguson being in there for so many years.”
