Mourinho: Hard to reject Red Devils

Jose Mourinho can't see Sir Alex Ferguson quitting Manchester United in the near future - but admits he could not 'say no' to replacing him.Mourinho's name has consistently been linked with the United post as interest increases as to when current United boss Sir Alex Ferguson will finally decide to call it a day. That interest was intensified last week when the Scot's son, Darren, currently in charge of League One Peterborough, revealed that he believed his father could retire at the end of next season if the club overhaul Liverpool's overall title successes. Red Devils director and club legend Sir Bobby Charlton has expressed a reluctance to appoint the former Chelsea boss as Ferguson's replacement - but the self-proclaimed 'Special one' is confident that the 67-year-old will be around for a while yet. "Which is the manager that says no? Nobody can say no," Mourinho told ESPN. "Manchester United belongs to a small group of clubs from around the world where nobody can say no. "But first of all I don't believe in 2010 he is leaving - I don't believe. "I think year after year he is the same, he's exactly the same person; healthy, happy, so I don't see a reason for him to quit. "And in a very fair way, I hope he still goes. I hope he still goes on, because he's good."
