Schmeichel said that although Mourinho is a great candidate for his qualities as a manager, the controversy that follows him means he cannot succeed Alex Ferguson, reports The Sun.
The Special One was sacked by Chelsea following three trophy-laden seasons and quit Inter after just two campaigns. And despite winning the Copa del Rey and La Liga in the last two years there has been constant talk of unrest at Real this season.
Schmeichel is also baffled as to why Madrid are tipped to beat United in tomorrow's Champions League clash. (ANI )
