Andy Cole believes that Jose Mourinho needs to produce a bit of magic in order to guide Manchester United to the Premier League title next season.
Mourinho’s arrival at United this summer has exponentially raised the level of expectations at Old Trafford and many now believe that the Red Devils will be challenging for the premiership under the tutelage of the Portuguese tactician.
Despite all the hype though, United will face a real tough test to win the title due to fierce competition in the division and former striker Cole believes that Mourinho would be like the famed British magician ‘Dynamo’ if he were to lead the Red Devils to Premier League glory in his debut season.
“If Jose Mourinho comes to Man Utd and wins [the Premier League] in the first season I think that would be like Dynamo the magician,” Cole told BBC Radio Manchester.
“It would be fantastic. He’s under no illusions how tough it’s going to be to come to Man Utd and try and win the Premier League the first season.
“Fingers crossed we have a better season than we did last season. Finishing in the top four has got to be a must. New manager and new players as well, it should be a good season.”
