Former Chelsea and Real Madrid defender Ricardo Carvalho has backed his former manager and compatriot Jose Mourinho to make United champions again.
Carvalho has no doubt Mourinho will lift United but isn't sure if it'll be in his first or second season at Old Trafford.
The Portugal international said as the Mirror reported: “I know that Jose will be a success at Manchester United.
“I have no doubt that he can bring trophies back to United again and that he will make them champions.
“I don’t know if it will be in the first year, the second year or the third, but he will win the title again. My prediction is that it will be in the second year.
“United have struggled since Sir Alex Ferguson retired, but Jose can be the one to replace him.
“He will not worry what went before. He will want to make his own success.
“Jose deserves to be at the biggest clubs because he is one of the top coaches.
“He has the quality to make Manchester United win again.”
