Former Manchester United captain Nemanja Vidic has his eyes set on Jose Mourinho’s job in the future

The Serbian retired from football in 2016 and is yet to take on any kind of coaching role since then.

Nowadays, Vidic works as a television pundit and gave his views on Sunday over United’s struggles to match their feats under former coach Sir Alex Ferguson.

This came following the Red Devils’ 3-1 derby loss to Manchester City.

“If you’re speaking about the Sir Alex Ferguson era and comparing now the last three, four years, definitely Manchester United is not on the level fans [are] expecting,” Vidic told beIN Sports.

He won five Premier League titles, three League Cups and the Champions League in his nine-year stay at Old Trafford.
