Mourinho, who was touted as a possible replacement for Ferguson, maintains former Everton boss Moyes deserves his shot at one of the highest-profile jobs in world football.

"They have made good decisions," he said.

"David proved himself at Everton. Okay, no trophies, but it's not easy to get a trophy when you manage Everton and he was not far from doing that.

"He has good experience, good work. I am more than happy, and I feel very happy for him.

"Man United will give him the time to adapt to a new dimension.

"He has never played a Champions League match so people can't expect him to be a fish in water in that first match.

"Give him time, stability. United is perfect for that, so that's a very good choice."

he 'where does it end' argument is an absurd one and completely misses the point of the Rooney Rule, which applies to all minorities. It doesn't force any team to appoint anyone, it merely requires them to interview at least one minority candidate.
