Manchester United F.C coach José Mourinho has said the only player he needs to sign for next season is Australian’s forward Tim Cahill. “Tim Cahill is the only player I need for next season and I would be signing him at a record fee” – the coach said.
The Melbourne City star ignited a fiery FFA Cup derby when he grabbed rival coach Kevin Muscat in a sideline bust-up during the semi-final against Melbourne Victory which melt the heart of Mourinho.
The Socceroo legend was aggressively targeted throughout last night’s match by Muscat’s men in a bid to nullify his presence on the pitch, which only last week saw the striker score one of the goals of the season in the A-League.
But when Cahill committed a foul in the first half, an irate Muscat was the first to his feet as both benches cleared for a sideline showdown.
Tim Cahill is yet to respond to Mourinho’s request for him to join Manchester United which could be a record signing for an Australian soccer player.
