Former Manchester United winger Lee Sharpe doesn’t want to see Jose Mourinho appointed manager.
Several reports indicate the Portuguese has signed a pre contract with United and will take over club proceedings in the summer if Van Gaal leaves, however, Sharpe feels ex-teammate Ryan Giggs deserves a chance.
“I really don’t want Jose Mourinho in charge,” he told talkSPORT.
“As entertaining as he is, and as good as he is, I just don’t think his teams are Manchester United teams.
“He plays to spoil rather than to go out and win and let people express themselves and I think Ryan Giggs would do that. I think Giggsy would be perfect.
“Giggsy is perfect for the job. Manchester United need someone who knows the club and knows the way they should be playing and that has a camaraderie with the fans and he’s got all that.
“I know it’s a risk because he’s a brand new manager and he’s still young, but he’s worked under the best. He’s been under Sir Alex Ferguson, he’s seen David Moyes there, who was a bit of a tactician, and now he’s seen Louis van Gaal there for a couple of years.
“I think he’s got plenty of experience, plenty of knowledge and plenty of know-how to have a proper go at it.”
