Harrington to skipper Europe at 2020 Ryder Cup
You could look at this as a natural progression but it isn't something I take on without a certain amount of trepidation. Harrington has been encouraged by what he said was the "unanimous" support of Europe's players.
"There are things that have been said and I do not want to feed those rumours", he said, "but when a player or coach is asked to come back to a club it means they did something positive there".
"I don't really want to go there but the best way to respect a great club [Benfica] and a great president is to say that I was not approached".
Mourinho managed Los Blancos from 2010-2013 earlier in his career and he has been heavily linked with a move to bring Mourinho back to the Bernabeu. "Everything has been sorted", said a source close to the former United, Inter and Real Madrid boss, the Daily Mail reported.
"When a professional returns or is invited to return to a club it is a tremendous honor".
It will be interesting to hear the Portuguese's opinions on that match, but everyone will be tuning in to find out what he has to say about his final few months at Manchester United.
Mourinho was linked with a spectacular return to his native Portugal this week as reports emerged that Benfica were ready to offer a contract to the former Porto boss. They're not signing someone they don't know, they are going for someone they know, someone who has already been there.
