Lord Sugar reacts on Twitter to Jose Mourinho speculation, makes confident prediction

Mourinho - Chelsea v Crystal Palace

Former Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho is reportedly set to become the new Manchester United boss.

Former Tottenham Hotspur chairman Lord Sugar has taken to social networking site Twitter to give his reaction to speculation linking Jose Mourinho with the managerial job at Manchester United.

According to BBC Sport, United are set to appoint former Chelsea boss Mourinho as their new manager.

It has been reported that a deal has been agreed between the two parties in principle, and it was done so before the FA Cup final between the Red Devils and Crystal Palace on Saturday evening.

Former Tottenham chairman Lord Sugar has suggested on Twitter that Mourinho would not be a good managerial appointment for United.

The Englishman has also predicted that the Red Devils will not win the Premier League under the former Real Madrid boss next season.

Mourinho has been without a managerial job since December 2015 when he parted company with Chelsea following a run of disappointing results in the Premier League.

The Portuguese guided the Blues to the Premier League title during the 2014-15 campaign, and is a very good football manager.
