British High Commissioner to Ghana Jon Benjamin has described Jose Mourinho as a character needed in the world of football.

Mourinho is set to replace Louis Van Gaal who was sacked by Manchester United Monday morning after failing to guide the club to a champion’s league spot. Mourinho had openly declared his intention to manage the English team since being sacked by Chelsea in December last year.

Speaking exclusively to Jon Benjamin noted: “I think Jose Mourinho is a character who always brings some spark to the game and that is exactly what the premier league is about.

“Football needs characters like him and I hope a few people also learn lessons from my friend Manuel Pelligrini about humility and being a bit humble.

“There will be a lot more money in the premier league next season because of the television deal and a lot more will be at stake too”.
