Signed, Unveiled, First Interview done … What’s next for Mourinho and Man United?


Last few days must have been pretty fanatic if you are a Manchester United fan as Jose Mourinho’s proposed announcement had taken over the football coverage all over the world.

However, the much anticipated announcement was taken care of few hours back when Mourinho was unveiled as he new Man United manager. Following that, The Special One gave his first statement since taking over at Old Trafford.

Now those two parts settled and out of the way, question that every one now has on their minds is what’s next for this special club and The Special One?

Not to forget, Mourinho experienced shocker of a last season with Chelsea and he will be quick to get over those memories. He is at a new club with new challenges and certainly new expectation to deal with.

Manchester United have struggled since Sir Alex Ferguson’s departure and have only won one trophy in last 3 seasons. Mourinho now needs to change that mentality inside Old Trafford and make players believe that they can actually win great things under his leadership.

Another facet with Mourinho’s management style is his ability to sign big players early in the window and given how United have virtually wasted £200million in recent seasons, Mourinho’s skills could come really handy for The Red Devils.

First piece of business for both United and Mourinho will be to sign key players before the pre-season starts on July 1. At the moment, United have been linked with the likes of Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Kostas Manolas, Alvaro Morata and Paul Pogba and it would be ideal for Mourinho to get the players he wants at the earliest.

Then it would all depend on how well Mourinho is able to gel his team and get them playing to his style. Often we have seen media being overly critical of the way Jose trains his teams but when it comes to winning football matches and trophies, there aren’t many better than him right now.

Man United had endured a sticky 2-year spell under Louis Van Gaal where even the homes games looked pale and hard to fathom for the United fans. That is where Jose needs to come in and lift the spirits at Old Trafford and make sure Manchester United are once again back amongst the elites of Premier League and European Football in seasons to come.
