Football at the top level is so rotten it's hard to have a serious conversation about any one detail. Nevertheless I think this appointment is either going to add serious damage to the "United brand", or be the end of JM as a really top manager. Or both.
Mind you Real Madrid came out the other side ok, so far, it seems. Then again, they were/are Real Madrid. Not sure if ManU with the image they have/had will absorb this as well
