“I don’t see anyone better out there” – Newcastle United urged to appoint former Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho

Former Premier League defender Danny Mills has urged Newcastle United to appoint former Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho as replacement for Steve Bruce.

Newcastle United are the wealthiest club in the world after the Saudi Public Investment Fund worth around £300billion bought the Premier League side last week.

“If you’re talking about being given money to build a team and be relatively successful, I’d go with Mourinho,” he told talkSPORT.

“If you give Jose enough money and allow him to what he wants to do, he will guide you to success quicker than probably anyone else.

“Newcastle can go slowly and survive this season, next season finish in the top half, then top six. But If they want to jump from survival to top four, I don’t see anyone better out there than Mourinho to do that.

“You’d have to give him absolute fortunes to buy the players that he wants, but he’s one of the only coaches that could do that.

“He could put a team together next week that will be successful, he could do it in the January transfer window. The football might not be brilliant but he’ll get you winning games that’s for sure.”
