The last 4 season has been difficult for the Manchester United. The Red Devils have looked impressive in the pre season friendlies and the first premier league match against West Ham. The SportNTalks brings you why we feel Red Devils can lift English Premier League under Jose Mourinho.
Four Years of Unpredictability – Manchester United
The last time Manchester United won the title it was under their legendary manager Sir Alex Furgason. Manchester had two coaches since the retirement of Sir Alex Furgason but none able to bring major trophies at the club. Louis Vaan Gaal and David Moyes had a big reputation but the team never looked like a Manchester United we know. There was always a lot of unpredictability in the team.
Louis Vaan Gaal and David Moyes had a big reputation but the team never looked like a Manchester United we know. There was always a lot of unpredictability in the team. David Moyes underperformed to what he did at another club in premier leagues. He never looked fit enough to take reign of a club like Manchester United.
Louis Vaan Gaal approach towards working with players especially a stars studded team would have never really succeeded. The off field discomfort was clearly showing on the pitch.
The leader of the team was missing. The team never looked, giants, once we used to know.
The Jose Mourinho
Jose Mourinho a name which is known to bring you trophies but there was a glitch in his career. Before signing for Manchester United which was a bit of shocker. Mourinho parted with Chelsea after a poor season.
Mourinho not known for having a poor season or giving up, but season at Chelsea was something different.
Joining Manchester was probably a way for him to prove himself again. A club which had huge reputation was finishing below top 4 was a perfect challenge for the manager. When two wounded lions meet you know something is coming but that was not the case in the first season.
The United finished 6th in the league but they managed to win Europa league. The Europa league victory meant the red devils will now return to champions league.
Mourinho produced magic in his second season at every club he has managed. This is his second season at Manchester. So far we got a glimpse of something special to come. Signings have been pin point and the team has looked well oiled in pre season friendlies.
The Three New Signings
United signed big names like Paul Pogba, Henrikh Mkhitaryan, and Zlatan Ibramovich. The players came with the big reputation but the team did not look like they still have it in them to win the league.
Jose probably has found the missing pieces in his puzzle towards the glory.
He signed Romelu Lukaku, Victor Lindelof, and Nemanja Matic. If Henrikh Mkhitaryan is to believe that these two are very special signing for the club. The two among three Romelu Lukaku and Matic showed their class in the 4-0 win over West Ham United. Lukaku got on the scoresheet twice in the match.
United lacked a player you could shield defense and Matic looked the player who could do that. The Serbian looked reliable in front of back four which gave freedom to attackers.
Victor Lindelof was not part of West Ham thrashing but the Swedish has shown his class in pre season friendlies. He will be an asset to have on the team roster. The three players have made this team look dangerous on all fronts.
Freedom To Paul Pogba.
Paul Pogba came with the huge reputation at Juventus. The transfer fee paid for him was humongous. The season for Paul Pogba did not go according to the script. He had an inconsistent season for the united.
This season we expect a different show from Paul Pogba. With the signing of Matic, Pogba now can move freely in the park. That means we will see more creativity from the Frenchmen. In the match against West Ham we just saw that. He moved freely in the middle of the park, spread ball nicely.
He moved well against West Ham United in the process getting on the scoresheet.
The Author Take – Manchester United
Manchester United is filled with positivity this season. The fans and the players believe that they can win the title. They had had match winners in them. Rest of premier league teams are yet to settle. United looks a settled unit and we may have the Giants reborn this season.
The team just has to continue performing, this team has all in it to win the title for United again. Jose Mourinho looked like found his mojo again. A brilliant victory at West Ham gives hopes to millions of fans around the world.
United have shown interest in Sergi Roberto. Signing him will add extra arsenal in the Jose Mourinho cabinet. According to sources, Manchester United will meet the release clause of Sergi Roberto.
