Former Manchester United winger Luis Nani has backed new manager and compatriot Jose Mourinho to take the Red Devils back to the top where they belong. Nani reckons his former side have got the right man in Mourinho to bring the glory days back to the Theatre of Dreams.
Louis van Gaal was relieved of his duties as United manager after failing to qualify for next season's Champions League - with a fifth-place finish in the 2015/16 Premier League campaign. "He is a fantastic manager – the best in the world in the last years," Nani as FourFourTwo reported.
"He has done well in England in the past. We know he can always produce something at every team he goes to and we hope he will help Manchester United to win titles again."
