Queiroz hints about quitting United...

United's assistant manager Carlos Queiroz had dropped a rather large hint that this coming December he's going to consider his future. As you'd expect, the likes of The Sun newspaper has translated this into 'Queiroz: I'll quit United'...

However, Queiroz is doing what everyone seems to do in football these days, that is, he is using the media to announce his apparent willingness to move to another club and with United taking on Sporting Lisbon in Portugal tonight, what better time to make an announcement about your future?

Queiroz has talked about Fergie's hints about him possibly being the next Manchester United manager. I for one seriously doubt that will happen, what's more, I believe that the former Real Madrid manager sees it that way too, hence his announcement. More likely a return to a Portuguese or Spanish club beckons for the man from Mozambique.

It might well be the case that Queiroz has got wind of changes afoot regarding Fergie's own future. Ferguson like his assistant, is on a rolling contract, partly to stop speculation about his own future, but if United do go on to win the Champions League this season then maybe he too might well bring down the curtain on his glittering United career. We shall have to wait until May to find out on that score - that's assuming that the Reds go all the way to Moscow for this season's Champions League final.

  1. Well i think that Queiroz (like we use to say in Portugal) is looking in which way the wind will blow. All his experiences of coaching senior teams were a little bit desastrous (reminder the South Africa participation in the CAN03 - his last serious job - forget Real Madrid). I dont like his tactic system (just one guy in the box to score the goals) and he isn't great on motivating the supporters (Here in the southern side of the football continent we do need that).

    The score for this evening match will be 3-1 for Sporting!!!

    Sorry to desapoint you...
