Paul Merson believes Jose Mourinho is the only man for Manchester United if they want to challenge for the Premier League title next season. Taijuan Walker Diamondbacks Jersey . With Louis van Gaal at the helm, United are outsiders to finish in the top four heading into the final day of the season, although they do have an FA Cup final to look forward to on May 21.Van Gaal has a year left to run on his deal at Old Trafford but there have been reports in Italy that Mourinho has agreed to replace the Dutchman in the summer. Asked whether he thinks Van Gaal will still be there if United miss out on fourth, Merson told Sky Sports Now: I think that will be it, he will be gone, and Jose Mourinho will be the next manager.If they want to get anywhere near where they want to be, they need to do it quickly, and there is no manager that can do things quickly like Mourinho. Jose Mourinho admits hell return to football in July but where will he end up? His impact is very quick and thats what United want. Van Gaal has a year left on his contract and if you keep him and then three months into the next season he is not doing well then whoever comes in takes over a struggling team, thats no good.The change needs to be made now, Jose Mourinho is the only man for Manchester United, the only man who can bring quick success.While Van Gaals future remains under scrutiny, Roberto Martinez was sacked on Thursday after a below-par season with Everton. Roberto Martinez was sacked by Everton on Thursday The Toffees are 12th in the Premier League ahead of their final match against Norwich.While Merson says their league position is not good enough and the players must take some of the blame, he added: Martinez is a manager who could manage Barcelona.He plays a type of football that doesnt suit the Everton fans, they want action and if he went to Barcelona he would be a success. They want playing out from the back and he is very good at that. Also See: Mersons predictions Jose knows nothing about Utd What next for Zlatan? Man Utd fixtures Matt Andriese Jersey . The Browns coaching search remains incomplete. Alex Avila Diamondbacks Jersey . The Cleveland Indians, Tampa Bay Rays, and Texas Rangers all won on Sunday meaning the Rangers will host the Rays in a play-in game on Monday. http://www.diamondbackssale.com/diamondbacks-steven-souza-jersey/ . Westbrook has missed 27 games since having a procedure on Dec. 27 to deal with swelling in his injured right knee — the third operation on the knee in nine months.Ian Rush believes Christian Benteke still has a lot to offer Liverpool but must be more selfish in front of goal. The Reds striker has scored seven goals in 31 appearances in all competitions since his summer move from Aston Villa, and is yet to find the net in 2016.But Rush, who won the League Cup a record five times, is confident Benteke has the quality to make a difference should he get his chance when Liverpool face Manchester City in the Capital One Cup final on Sunday. What he has to do is get in the box, you have to be selfish and score goals, Rush told Sky Sports News HQ. I went seven games without scoring for Liverpool once, and I got dropped even though wed won five and drawn two.Bob Paisley said You are not playing because you are not scoring, and I think Benteke has to be a little bit selfish in the box because when you are a striker, you have to be hungry at the right time. A look back at Ian Rushs five League Cup wins. The Liverpool legend thinks Jurgen Klopp can make history by beating Manchester City in the Capital One Cup Strikers will be judged on goals, not how many you create, and once you start scoring, you start making them as well. If you get him inside the box more, hell get chances because he is a good finisher and I think he can play in the Liverpool system. Benteke has scored seven goals in 31 appearances for Liverpool this season Bentekes struggles have prompted comparisons to Andy Carrolls time at Anfield. Carroll scored 11 goals in 58 games for the Reds, but Rush believes Benteke has moore to offer than the former Liverpool striker. Wilmer Flores Diamondbacks Jersey. When you look at Carroll and Benteke, they are both strong in the air, but I think Benteke has a bit more about him, he added. He has quality with his feet. Carroll is great, but if Benteke gets his confidence he has more to offer.He may need a run of games, but thats what I like because when [Daniel] Sturridge is fit, theres competition for places. I think Benteke is a quality player, and Ive seen him for Belgium and Aston Villa when he scored some great goals. He just needs a goal. Daniel Sturridge returned as a second-half substitute against West Ham, and featured against Aston Villa and Augsburg Sturridge struck twice in his single Capital One Cup appearance this season, against Southampton in December, and the England international is in contention to feature against City following his return from injury.He played more than an hour against Aston Villa and FC Augsburg, and Rush thinks his presence in the line-up brings confidence to the rest of the team.Hes special but he needs to be on the pitch, Rush continued. If we can get him on the pitch, it breeds confidence. We have some great players, but Sturridge is probably a bit different. He can win you games.Against Villa he got the first goal and that changed the game completely because it meant they had to come out and play. When you also have Philippe Coutinho and Roberto Firmino you have three quality players that can score you goals. Rush thinks Liverpool have the quality to hurt Manchester City on Sunday My job when I played was to score. If I got one, I wanted two, and if I got two, I wanted three. Thats the hunger you have. I know hes been injured a lot, but when Sturridge is on the pitch, he wants to win and score goals, and it brings confidence if hes in the side because we know we can score .Daniel has had so many injuries, he wants to get himself 100 per cent fit. I think every player wants to play, and if youre not ready, its not worth playing, but hopefully, now he is 100 per cent because his goalscoring ratio is incredible.
