Harry Redknapp has revealed that he can see Real Madrid coach Jose Mourinho succeeding Sir Alex Ferguson as Manchester United manager.
The Tottenham Hotspur mahager believes the Portuguese tactician will have to bide his time with United boss Sir Alex Ferguson giving no sign he is set to retire any time soon.
“Of those (managers) I have faced this campaign there is one who stands head and shoulders above the others – Jose Mourinho,” Redknapp told The Sun.
“Some are calling the Real Madrid boss the Marmite manager – you either love him or hate him.
“I am one of those who has nothing but admiration for the former Chelsea chief, who I think will end up managing Manchester United one day in the very distant future when Alex Ferguson calls time.
“But every time I see Alex he looks younger than the last occasion I bumped into him. He is showing no signs of wear and tear. His enthusiasm is limitless. He wants to carry on – so Jose could have a very long wait.”
