Former Chelsea star Deco believes Jose Mourinho is the man to bring success back to Manchester United.
The now retired midfielder enjoyed a very successful spell under the Portuguese boss during their time at Porto, winning the Champions League.
Mourinho is now the top candidate for the Red Devils should they club decide to part ways with current manager Louis van Gaal in the summer.
The Dutchman’s future could now rely on whether or not he is able to lead his squad to FA Cup glory when they take on Crystal Palace in the final this Saturday.
Should United decide to change their manager, Deco has claimed that the former Chelsea boss is the perfect person to take the reins at Old Trafford.
“I don’t know if he’s going to United but, if it’s true, in my opinion he is the right man for the job,” he told Omnisport.
“In this moment United needs to bring back all its history and I think Mourinho is the perfect coach to train United.”
Van Gaal’s job is in jeopardy after his side missed out on a top four spot, finishing fifth in the Premier League as they lost out to rivals Manchester City on goal difference.
