Big Ron: Mourinho too outrageous for Man Utd

Former Manchester United boss Ron Atkinson believes Real Madrid coach Jose Mourinho isn't the right fit.

Former Manchester United boss Ron Atkinson believes Real Madrid coach Jose Mourinho isn't the right fit.

Mourinho is among the favourites to succeed Sir Alex Ferguson following his retirement announcement this morning.

Big Ron told talkSPORT: "We know Jose Mourinho is desperate for the job, but he might be considered a little too outrageous for them.

“There has to be a good style of play as well. Manchester United fans are brought up with a certain style of play and it shouldn’t be overlooked that whatever they’ve won, they have won it in style.

“That may, to a certain extent, count against Mourinho, who is a little bit more pragmatic in the way he plays the game. I would say if it’s a straight run between the pair of them then it’s going to be (David) Moyes.”
