King Kev backs Jose as he entertains crowd
JOSE Mourinho will “probably” show enough character to come through his tough time at Manchester United.
So said former england player and manager Kevin Keegan at the Cheltenham Literature Festival tonight.
Keegan, there to promote his new book, was asked by a member of the packed audience what he would suggest to the United boss if he had supper with him tomorrow night.
Keegan, who was thoroughly entertaining for the 75-minute event, said Mourinho was experiencing a poor time as a manager for the first time in his career.
He said: “It’s easy in life when you’re winning. The character comes out when you’re not winning.
“He’s got to handle it and he probably will.”
The former Liverpool and newcastle striker had the crowd chuckling on many occasions.
In a nod to the town’s racing festival, he said tonight was shaping up to be the first time he had been to Cheltenham without losing money.
