Terry backs Mourinho appointment

John Terry has backed Jose Mourinho to bring success back to Manchester United.

Terry won eight trophies under Mourinho during the 53-year-old's two spells at Stamford Bridge and the Portuguese coach has been tipped to revive United's fortunes after struggling in the wake Sir Alex Ferguson's retirement in 2013.

Although Mourinho was sacked by Chelsea in December following a dismal start to the campaign, Terry has the utmost respect for his former manager and believes he will be a success at Old Trafford.

"It's fantastic news for Man United. I'm sure the Man United fans and players will be delighted with that," Terry told Sky Sports News.

"I've said many times before, he's the best manager I've worked under and a real delight. It's a shame the way he finished at Chelsea this year but I wish him well because he's a great manager and a great man as well, he'll be great for Manchester United I'm sure.

"I'm sure he'll settle in well with the likes of Ryan Giggs, hopefully he'll stay and support him along with the team.

"I've come up against Jose for previous teams before, he'll get a great reception when he comes back to [Stamford] Bridge, for sure, but first and foremost we have to really look at ourselves this year and start fighting for the title again."
