Manchester United’s reluctance to pursue Pep Guardiola as manager “says a lot” about the club, says Daily Telegraph journalist Matt Law.
The Sunday Mirror claimed that United are ready to appoint Giggs over Mourinho in the summer, providing Louis van Gaal cannot turn things around at Old Trafford.
However, Daily Telegraph journalist Law finds it strange that their choice seems to be between only two men.
“It surprises me slightly that it seems to be Mourinho or Giggs,” Law told Sunday Supplement on Sky Sports.
“[Diego] Simeone has a release contract at Atletico Madrid, I think they had a look at him before Van Gaal. I can’t quite understand why he hasn’t come into the picture.
“[Massimiliano] Allegri at Juventus is doing a great job, I can’t quite understand why everything is concentrated so much on [Giggs and Mourinho].
“For me, Manchester United used to be the club who could go out and look at all the top candidates and it says a lot that they didn’t even feel they could go for [Pep] Guardiola because he was so far down the line for Man City.
“Traditionally, you’d have thought United would be right in there for Guardiola.”
