Christian enjoyed a relatively good career especially at club football level and he was able to retire as a legend for Inter Milan in the Italian Serie A. He started his club career at CSM Resita before he played some first team games for the club between 1997/98. Christian Chivu scored two goals in 24 games for the first team at CSM Resita in the league before he signed for FC UniversitateaCraiova for the 1998/99 season. Christian Chivu netted three times in 32 league games for the club before he left to move abroad for the first time in his career. His first club outside Romania was Ajax Amsterdam in the Dutch Eredivisie. Ex-Romanian national team player Chivu was at Ajax Amsterdam for four seasons before Italian Serie A capital club AS Roma were inspired to pay €18m for his services. AS Roma saw the quality in Christian Chivu and they were able to prise the utility defender away from the Dutch league. Christian Chivu was a versatile defender during his career as he can play as a left-back or as a left-sided centre back.
Former Inter Milan defender Cristian Chivu believes that Jose Mourinho is the right manager for Manchester United. He said that he has worked under the Portuguese manager while he was at Inter Milan and that he is one of best manager he has worked with.
He said that there is no reason why he cannot change
Manchester United fortunes and he is sure that he is the right man for the job.
Cristian Chivu believes that there are some other problems
that are plaguing the team and it is not solely the manager’s fault. He said
that he has been following the team for quite some time and he knows that the
manager was not given the financial backing that he wanted during the transfer
Indeed Jose Mourinho submitted a list of players to the
Manchester United board and he fails to secure any of the defenders on the
list. The Portuguese manager knew that he had some problem at the back and
wanted to address those issues by signing some players but he was not given the
money required to achieve that.
Cristian Chivu said that there are already some good players at Manchester United but he feels that it is at the back that they are currently weak. He believes that Mourinho is the right man for the job and he could be the person that bring back the glory days at Manchester United. He wants fans to remain behind the manager and gives him the support he needs.
