The Reason Jose Mourinho Has Not been Confirmed As United Manager Would Make You Weep

The Reason Jose Mourinho Has Not been Confirmed As United Manager Would Make You Weep

Well we had a good run. But we have recently been made aware of the sad death of football as we know it. The reason Manchester United are yet to confirm the appointment of Manchester United is due to a hold-up relating to his image rights.

To misquote his predecessor: image rights, bloody hell! The reason for the hold up is because Chelsea - in their infinite, corporate wisdom - trademarked Mourinho's name, so the club could flog merchandise with their manager's name on it. IT means that, as well as everything else, Mourinho was a toxic investment in his final season with Chelsea. Dave Phillips was the first to flag this:

Football is a simple game. 22 men chase a ball around a field and at the end, the Germans always have the best balance sheet.

It is worth noting that Jame Ducker of the Telegraph is tonight reporting that these issues have been resolved, so expect some more movement and possibly an official announcement tomorrow morning.

Image rights, for a manager. Honestly.
