Why Manchester United should have appointed Guardiola instead of Mourinho - Cantona

Who gets to wear Manchester United's number seven shirt is a big deal to numerous club's supporters.

Though, Jose Mourinho has been criticised in recent weeks for his defensive style of football.

"I love Mourinho. It is just I prefer it if it is more offensive because it is United".

Some of Manchester United's greatest ever players, including the Frenchman, have worn the jersey.

"Both Guardiola and Mourinho are great, but I prefer attacking football, when it's more creative. It's the way I tried to play all my career". I love Mourinho, but I prefer to watch Barcelona play.

"Like Barcelona or the Real Madrid of [Zinedine] Zidane, where you have players like [Luka] Modric or [Toni] Kroos who are the brains of the team".

Mourinho has been criticised on a number of occasions this season for playing defensively with some pundits accusing the manager of "parking the bus" during games.

"He is very psychological".

"He has a lot of charisma, has won a lot of things and will win a lot of things".

Despite Mourinho's interest in PSG, however serious it might be, United still has a contract option that can extend until 2020.

He replied: "If it's Manchester United maybe I sit around the table and we can speak for a few minutes".

Cantona continued: "I really love Mourinho - I love the way he plays". Pastore will surprise you every time. The Sun has credited the likes of Chelsea and Liverpool with an interest in Pastore, however, his agent is pushing for his client to join Inter Milan, who are now second in the Italian top flight.

"They have two great players - Pastore and [Hatem] Ben Arfa - and none of them play". Every time he touches the ball, he surprises you - he gives the ball to someone no one had seen before.
