Which Newcastle player would love to see Ronaldo and Mourinho at Old Trafford?

Mourinho Dugout

Even the players are busy talking about the unconfirmed next Manchester United boss.

Now that Sir Alex Ferguson has finally retired, speculation as to his replacement is reaching fever pitch among fans, and even players.

With Wigan losing last night, the stress around St James Park must have relented a bit, at least to the point where Newcastle fans can forgive their players from joining in such idle gossip.

Sammy Ameobi was one of the many footballers to have their say on Twitter this morning about the big news at Manchester United.

Michael Owen, entering retirement himself had an alternate view.

Mourinho or Moyes - longevity or short-term success.

Who has it right, Owen or Ameobi?
