Is this Jose Mourinho’s replacement at Man Utd?

Jose Mourinho’s future at Manchester United has come under question this week following our disappointing Champions League exit at the hands of Sevilla on Tuesday.

We offered little threat over both legs whilst allowing a total of 46 efforts on our goal over 180 minutes against the team most consider the weakest in the final eight.

On top of this we are 16 points behind Premier League leaders Manchester City.  This all comes after the Portuguese coach has spent around £330 million in little more than a season-and-a-half.

The future of Jose at Old Trafford is now under question by many and Spanish outlet Don Balon are claiming they know who his replacement at Manchester United will be.

Don Balon are claiming that Atletico Madrid manager Diego Simeone will replace Mourinho at Old Trafford.  The Argentine is highly-rated having won the 2013-14 La Liga title as huge underdogs and taking Madrid’s second team to two Champions League finals over the past four years.

Simeone is a quality tactician who has previously been linked to the likes of Internazionale and Chelsea.  He has a reputation of signing quality strikers and developing players.

Whilst Jose Mourinho’s tactics have been ultra defensive this season, Simeone has shown his versatility in charge of the La Liga side in attacking sides when needed.
