Mourinho would be perfect fit but what about Pep?

United desperately need a lift, a spark, an inspiration from somewhere, and Jose would certainly liven the place up - but what about Pep Guardiola?

United are stuck in a rut under Louis van Gaal and they cannot ignore the fact that two of the top managers in world football are going to be available.

Something has to change at the club because - bar one or two excellent performances - we have been poor all season and Mourinho would be the perfect fit after his departure from Chelsea. 

He is desperate to make a quick return, knows exactly how huge United are as a club and would put smiles back on the face of players and the fans.

But Guardiola is now also on the market and while everyone is expecting him to pitch up at Manchester City, I would be surprised if we did not at least consider him.

After appointing David Moyes and Van Gaal in quick succession, United have to get the next manager right if we do make a change.

This is not the United we have known the years - bereft of the fantastic players whom lifted titles under an equally fantastic manager in Sir Alex- but we should not be in the position we are now.

I think Van Gaal is an acquired taste and we have been underwhelming all season.
We look confused by the system and the players do not seem happy.

Losing at home to Norwich City is unacceptable and, so soon after going out of the Champions League, could not have been worse timing.

Mourinho would certainly inject life, confidence and swagger into the club and probably has a point to prove after leaving Chelsea for a second time.
Chelsea are in a mess and results have been so poor that it was inevitable that the manager would pay.

Their players have said how much they loved him - everyone seems to - but it was clear that some felt the opposite in private.
Guus Hiddink will settle it all down there and more than likely they go on a fantastic run but Van Gaal- if reports are to be believed- has two games to save his job.

Mourinho will not be out of work for long and would be an ideal appointment for the club- as would Guardiola. 

Pep as manager? 
Or Jose?
