Guardiola or me better for Man United than Mourinho - Cantona

Eric Cantona has said that Pep Guardiola should be Manchester United's manager rather than Jose Mourinho.

"To speak about a transfer..." We have a common goal - to win.

"As long as you do not see me in a Barcelona jersey, it's because I'm in Manchester".

The Red Devils have won two and lost two of their first four matches in the Premier League this season, suffering defeats to Brighton and Tottenham.

"I like Mourinho. He has a good personality but not for United - they should have [Pep] Guardiola as coach".

Less than 24 hours earlier, however, the 25-year-old had also spoken about the same issue, claiming: "I'm playing there [United] at the moment, but who knows what will happen in the near future?"

United is a club renowned for their footballing ideology - the Sir Matt Busby Way - the ALL OUT attacking attitude to play football when they are behind, and to show character when their club needs them the most.

"It would be great for the fans, like it was with Alex Ferguson - he allowed players to be creative, treated them as individuals. No fun, no creativity". "I think football is changing and managers should be called head coaches".

This weekend the global break brought the opportunity for a much-needed rest, and Mourinho took full advantage by going to see his stars - David De Gea and co. - in action at Wembley stadium.

Pogba was linked over the summer with a return to his former club Juventus.

Perhaps it is all a game to Pogba and his representatives because they know, whatever the outcome, they will emerge as well-remunerated winners.

When you have Rashford, Martial, Lukaku, Pogba, Mata, Lingard, Sanchez and now Fred eligible to play for your side, then having 30-40 percent possession certainly does not suit their style of play.
