Jose Mourinho “is the man” to put Manchester United back at the top of the European game, according to former Porto and Barcelona star Deco.
The Portuguese coach has been heavily linked with the manager’s position at Old Trafford, with Louis van Gaal coming under intense scrutiny after another season of underachievement.
Deco played under Mourinho at Porto, where the pair won the Portuguese title twice, the UEFA Cup and the Champions League.
The former playmaker believes his former boss is the right candidate to restore United’s confidence and take them back to the top.
“I think he will change them a lot,” Deco told Squawka. “United need to back be at a high level and Mourinho is the man to do that. He will bring their confidence again, for the players, for the fans, for the people. You cannot win something without it.”
