New Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho will deliver the Premier League title within two years, predicted defender Ricardo Carvalho on Sunday.
“Jose will have something to prove after what happened at Chelsea,” the Portuguese international who was coached by Mourinho at Chelsea, Porto and Real Madrid and now plays for Monaco, wrote in The Sun newspaper.
“I think he will make Manchester United better and in the next two years they will be champions.”
Carvalho’s comments come on a day when Mourinho could make his first appearance at Old Trafford since being named as Louis van Gaal’s successor in Sunday’s prestigious Soccer Aid charity match.
Just nine days after the official confirmation of Mourinho’s appointment, the 53-year-old will be in Manchester to give his support to Unicef, who use the friendly fixture to raise money for children in danger.
