Arsenal legend Ian Wright believes that Chelsea erred by parting ways with former manager Jose Mourinho, who has been heavily linked with a move back to the Premier League.
The ‘Special One’ was partly responsible for the transformation at west London, which saw the club catapulted to superpower status in England and Europe.
Presently, Wright believes Manchester United could capitalise on the Mourinho’s situation.
In a column for The Sun, Wright said: “I believe Chelsea made a big mistake when they booted Jose out of Stamford Bridge two years ago.”
“He could have become the Alex Ferguson of London, creating his very own dynasty at the club and winning trophies year after year.
“But the egos of Mourinho and Roman Abramovich got in the way and Chelsea have been paying the price ever since.
“Now United could be one of the clubs that capitalise on that mistake by appointing Jose as Alex Ferguson’s Old Trafford successor.
“What a sensational move that would be.
“It would be just like Don Corleone handing over the family business to Michael.”
