Manchester United legend Eric Cantona says he’s a big fan of manager Jose Mourinho.

Despite not being won over by his style of play, Cantona is happy to see Mourinho in charge of his old club.

Cantona told FullTimeDevils: “United always played in a good way and enjoy the game. It’s the philosophy of the club it’s very strong, it’s a creative game, passing, movement.

“But winning things is also very important and Mourinho has won a lot of things and he will win a lot of things. He has already won things with United and he will win many more things with United I think.

“I prefer when it’s more fancy and more creative of course. It’s why I loved to play for United.

“I really love Mourinho. I love the way he played it’s just I prefer if it is more offensive. That’s just because its United. It’s like Barcelona if they played in a defensive way nobody would understand.

“This philosophy at United is very strong for the kids. Now it’s a bit difficult to understand. But I do love Mourinho and he can win things and he will win things which is very important.”
