After Manchester United lost to Norwich at Old Trafford this afternoon, the calls for Jose Mourinho to take over at the club began to trend on social media.
In a couple of days hopefully we’ll finally have the Manager who could/should have took over when Fergie retired! #MourinhoIN

The pressure on Louis van Gaal has become massive today after United fans once again booed their manager off the Old Trafford pitch. The Red Devils put in another dreadful display this afternoon against an average Norwich side that have been highly tipped for relegation.
#MourinhoIn this is embarrassing

Added to the fact that the supporters seem entirely fed up with the Iron Tulip’s philosophy, the fact that such an attractive alternative now lies in wait has thrown fuel on the ‘Van Gaal Out’ campaign.
After Jose Mourinho was sacked by Chelsea just two days ago, many felt that the Portuguese manager would take some time off and look for a new position next summer. However, the self-proclaimed Special One has now released a statement openly stating that he is readily available for any appealing position that might become available.
Can’t defend LvG now. No matter the final result today. Board have to act. Bring Mourinho in now before he’s seduced by Madrid again. #MUFC

Mourinho’s interest in the United job has been openly known for some time and with United fans now actively campaigning for the club to part company with Van Gaal, Mourinho’s statement unequivocally confirmed that he would be willing to take over immediately.
Check out Mourinho’s intriguing statement in full below:
Jose Mourinho is pleased that he returned to Chelsea because he was able to give the fans another Premier League title, which they had not won for many years.
He is immensely proud of his eight trophies at Chelsea, and thanks the fans for all their support throughout his two spells at the club.
During his career, Jose has sometimes chosen to leave a club, but only at Chelsea has the club decided that he should leave.
Each time for his represents the end of a cycle and the opportunity to start a new one. Jose hopes that his future after Chelsea this time will be as successful as when he left the club in 2007.
He will not be taking a sabbatical, he isn’t tired, he doesn’t need it.
He is very positive and is already looking forward.
