Ferdinand envisages Mourinho staying at Man Utd for years - unlike at Real Madrid, Inter Milan

Rio Ferdinand feels that current Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho can break his habit at staying at club's for a short period of time.

The Portuguese has been successful at every club he has been too, having won league titles with Porto, Real Madrid, Inter and Chelsea. Despite the success, Mourinho has only ever stayed at the one club for no more than three seasons.

"I think he's found somewhere where he feels very comfortable, very at ease and, if it goes well, there's no better place to be," said the former club captain.

"He's managed at some of the biggest clubs in the world, the likes of Real Madrid and Inter Milan. But I think it's a different pressure you get at places like that.

"Here, he's allowed to live his life much more comfortably. He loves England, he loves the football, the culture and I can see him staying at United - if successful - for many years.

"Also, where does he go from here? It's been a long time coming on his part, to get to United, and I'm sure he doesn't want to give it up easily."
