Manchester United without Carlos Queiroz

Ever since Scolari left Portugal to sign for Chelsea, Carlos Queiroz is being linked with the vacant position. And why not, he has been a great coach at United and that speaks for itself. In the latest development, it was being reported that he is close to agreeing a $1.5m four year deal with Portugal.

As a United fan, I would be disappointed to see him leave which i am almost sure is going to happen. But i wouldn’t blame him, who wouldn’t want to manage there country one day. That type of job doesn’t come often. For United, it will be a big loss, or we can say, a bad summer for united as the Cristiano Ronaldo drama continues with Madrid reporting there interest and Ronaldo saying nothing to deny it. Considering he was a big mentor to Ronaldo and one of the main reason behind his deadly form, a face which even Ronaldo agrees. So his departure will once again bring the Ronaldo saga to the fore front. The fact that Ferguson welcomed him back after his stint with Real Madrid, and Ferguson also saying that he is the ideal man to replace him after he retires, tells you about his importance to the club. Even Ryan Giggs mentions in his autobiography

He’d train us, prepare us for games, organise the team and decide the things we needed to work on. Some said he had too much influence, but I don’t agree. He impressed me from the start."

He was one of the main reasons behind United’s impressive defending and there tactical approach to big games. Not only was he a master tactician, he had a great eye of discovering talent. He was the man responsible for scouting Nani and Anderson, two impressive young talents. And most important, he had an amazing language skills as he could speak 5 different languages and a good network, as well as being a father-figure to Ronaldo.

Though the club hasn’t said anything official about this but I guess Ferguson must be looking for a new no. 2. One of the men being linked with the post is the great “Eric Cantona”. Though what will happen only time will tell. But it is a bad news for the club and it might also be for “Ronaldo”.
