Tottenham Hotspur legend Gary Lineker has taken to social networking site Twitter to give his reaction to the speculation that Jose Mourinho could become the new Manchester United manager.

United have sacked Louis van Gaal as their manager after two years following the team’s failure to finish in the top four of the Premier League this season.

According to BBC Sport, former Chelsea and Real Madrid boss Mourinho will succeed Van Gaal at Old Trafford.

Former Tottenham and Leicester City striker Lineker believes that the Portuguese would be a good managerial appointment for United.

Mourinho is one of the best football managers in the world, and since he is available at the moment, it would make sense for United to approach him.

The former Inter Milan boss is a ‘winner’, and he could guide the Red Devils back to the top four of the Premier League next season.

United have a good bunch of players, but Mourinho would have to make a few signings in order to make the team competitive for a Premier League title challenge next season.
