Here is a selection of the best José Mourinho to Man Utd jokes with the former Chelsea manager appearing poised to replace Louis van Gaal in the Old Trafford hot seat.

Football’s biggest open secret is finally coming to pass, the Dutchman receiving his marching orders having ended his reign on a high note by beating Crystal Palace 2-1 at Wembley to win the FA Cup.

Despite a last-ditch approach from PSG for his services, Mourinho – whose managerial CV also includes spells in charge of Porto, Real Madrid and Inter Milan – looks set to renew hostilities with incoming Man City boss Pep Guardiola.

Interesting times ahead, then, so in the meantime just sit back, relax and enjoy the following Mourinho to Man Utd jokes:

Last year: "Mourinho plays boring football."

LvG spent 2 years teaching young players how to keep possession only for Mourinho to come in, sell them all & park the bus.

Mourinho will NOT be making Ryan Giggs his assistant manager, but is happy to allow him to continue to be paid to stand around & do nothing.

I live and pray for the poetic justice of Jose Mourinho hiring Ryan Giggs' brother as Man Utd assistant manager.

Gary Neville would be a great addition to Mourinho's backroom. Knows the club inside out and hasn't done the dirty on the sister-in-law.

Admirable gall from PSG to approach Mourinho. He said a kitman could win the Bundesliga. The tea lady could win Ligue 1.

The LVG sacking press conference has been delayed because Mata has prepared a PowerPoint presentation on why Mourinho is the wrong man.

The possible good news of Mourinho taking over at ManU is not that he will, it's that we won't have to hear the rumors anymore. TY Fatima.
