Peter Schmeichel can't see Real Madrid coach Jose Mourinho ever taking charge of Manchester United.

The legendary keeper insisted the controversy that follows Mourinho means he cannot succeed Alex Ferguson.

United idol Schmeichel said: "He will not be the successor. I don't think the club would be happy with everything Mourinho brings with him.

"He's a great candidate for his qualities as a manager but the club doesn't want all the things that come with him.

"Chelsea, Inter and now Real Madrid - he doesn't last more than three years."
