King Kev backs Jose as he en­ter­tains crowd

Gloucestershire Echo - - NEWS - By ROBIN JENKINS

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.
