Lineker made the suggestion following United’s 2-1 defeat to Norwich City at Old Trafford in the Premier League earlier today.
Manchester United are losing at home to Norwich. Mourinho for United anyone?— Gary Lineker (@GaryLineker) December 19, 2015
Manchester United are 2 down. JOSEEEEE!!!!— Gary Lineker (@GaryLineker) December 19, 2015
The defeat to Norwich means that United have now slipped out of the top four in the Premier League table.
Under manager Louis van Gaal, performances of the team have been disappointing so far this season.
The results have not been that bad, but the loss to Norwich at Old Trafford will make many fans question whether Van Gaal is the right man for the job going forward.
Jose Mourinho is a ‘free agent’ at the moment, having been sacked by Chelsea on Thursday.
The former Real Madrid boss is a 'winner', but given his struggles with the Blues this campaign, should United take a ‘risk’?
