Mourinho raging on the OT touchline

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, the interim Manchester United manager who stepped into the vacuum left at the club when Jose Mourinho was sacked, is living proof that the Old Trafford job is the easiest job in football, says an expert.

Solskjaer took over the reins from the Portuguese in mid-December, and the Reds have won 13 out of their 16 games under the Norwegian since then, leading some people in football to suggest that, with their vast resources, the task of 'looking after' United is one that could reasonably be undertaken by anyone.

The Spoof's football correspondent, Moys Kenwood, said:

"With their vast resources, the task of 'looking after' United is one that could be undertaken by anyone."

He expanded on this a bit:

"Although Mourinho made a bit of a pig's ear of it, managing Manchester United should be easy enough for anybody. I know David Moyes also made a balls-up, and that Dutch fellow after him, but most people should be able to have a decent bash at it. Ryan Giggs, for one, or Mark Hughes, or Steve McClaren. I mean, even Bryan Robson, with his 'trail of tears' and poor managerial performances should be capable of making a fist of it at Old Trafford!"

And would Kenwood like to speculate on who will eventually get the nod at the Theatre of Dreams?

"I'm not one to speculate," he lied, "but how about Gary Neville or Paul Scholes? Or Harry Bassett, or Neil Warnock? Or that bloke off 'Strictly Come Dancing', you know, Craig Revel Horwood? Even he should be able to manage United."

The story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
