After the end of the Alex Ferguson era, no one could replace him to make the Red Devils Sucessful. When David Moyes took over, he was fired because he had big shoes to fill. Then Van Gaal vowed to âmake historyâ at Manchester United but things didnât go well for him and the only trophy they won in his 2-year reign was one FA Cup.
After all this, United needed a big change; they needed a manager like JosĂ© Mourinho, who not only knows Premier League well but also has had considerable amount of success on this league and other important leagues and tournaments.
Mourinhoâs success at top clubs
He has won multiple championships and cups with Chelsea including 3 Premier League, 3 English Champion, 1 Super Cup, 1 FA Cup. This shows clearly that he knows what it takes to be successful on the pitch. Not only Chelsea, but Mourinho is bound to be successful in any club he serves as a manager.
He has nothing to prove; his career stats speaks for itself. When asked if he has anything to prove at Old Trafford, he said, âThere have been some managers who last won a title 10 years ago, some never. The last time I won a title was one year ago.
If I have something to prove, imagine the others.â The thing with Heâs an ambitious person and his goals never end. Mourinho is a perfect fit for the Red Devils.
In the press conference of his appointment, you could witness his frustration in his face knowing that Manchester United will not be competing in this yearâs Champions League. Even though they will not be playing in Champions league, Zlatan Ibrahimovic agreed to play for Mourinho.
He could have stayed in Paris Saint-Germain and continued to play in Champions League but he trusted Mourinho. Thatâs the kind of trust Mourinho gives to his players and thatâs the kind of trust that Manchester United needs!
Probable lineups for Manchester United
With Mourinho in charge for the upcoming season of Premier League 2016/17, the possible formations can be either 4-2-3-1 or 4-3-3.
He has always chosen 4-2-3-1 with his past teams, Chelsea and Real Madrid and it has always being his favourite. Therefore it is more likely to be a 4-2-3-1, with the purchase of Ibrahimovic, Bailly, Mkhitaryan and sale of Valdes. Here is how Mourinhoâs formation would be: De Gea; Valencia, Bailly, Blind, Shaw; Schneiderlin, Herrera; Mkhitaryan, Mata, Rooney; Ibrahimovic.
