Mourinho's appointment has been backed by some former United players, including former goalkeeper Peter Schmeichel and Hull City boss Steve Bruce.

And on Thursday, ex-defender Rio Ferdinand praised the 53-year-old former Chelsea, Inter Milan and Real Madrid boss.

"I have heard many say the 'Mourinho WAY' is not the Manchester United style of playing football," the 37-year-old former England skipper wrote on his Facebook page.

"However, the Chelsea team that Jose put together first time round when he entered the Premier League played with wingers and hurt teams with quick attacking play.

"This is a sign he knows how to get a team playing in a way Manchester United fans can look forward to seeing."

He added: "One thing I can tell Manchester United fans is that they have got themselves a true winner in all aspects. His CV shows success."

Zlatan Ibrahimovic, who United are interested in bringing to Old Trafford, potentially as Mourinho's first signing, said his former boss was "the man to bring them [United] back to the top".

Jose Mourinho has been officially confirmed as Manchester United manager and has signed a three-year contract.

He replaces Dutchman Louis van Gaal, who was dismissed on Monday, two days after the club's FA Cup win.

"Jose is quite simply the best manager in the game today," said United executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward.

Mourinho, 53, said: "To become Manchester United manager is a special honour in the game. It is a club known and admired throughout the world."

He said he had always "felt an affinity with Old Trafford" and claimed he has "always enjoyed a rapport with the United fans".

He added: "I'm looking forward to being their manager and enjoying their magnificent support in the coming years.

"There is a mystique and a romance about it which no other club can match."
