Arsenal legend Thierry Henry has talked up the prospect of Jose Mourinho taking charge of Manchester United.

Henry reckons the former Chelsea boss is the man to take United back to the top of the table.

“I admire Jose Mourinho a lot,” Henry toldDiario de Noticias.

“He is one of the best coaches in history, he has won almost everything and for clubs that no one was expecting, such as at Porto and Inter Milan.

“Then, he still won the Spanish league with Real Madrid facing one of Barcelona’s best teams ever.”

Henry added: “Manchester United need to get back to the big wins and for that they must have a coach with a winning profile.

“No one can question anything that Van Gaal has done for football, but his message is not going into the group.

“Jose Mourinho is fantastic and can be an excellent solution for the club, he is synonymous with victory, although things did not go very well at Chelsea earlier this season.”
