Mourinho Turning United Season Around
When one of Europe’s most successful managers joined Manchester United after what was a horrid season at Chelsea, it was interesting to see what he was going to do at Old Trafford. He started off by winning the English community shield.
When the English premier League kicked in, the United team started to show signs of poor coordination and it all looked like United would have been better off with Louis Van Gaal.
United went on one of the longest winless streaks in the league and one could easily see that Mourinho was getting sank into the depression and questions were starting to fly in from every corner, the fans were getting agitated.
But towards the end of November, Manchester started grinding down wins and as they got involved in many league activities they started to play like a team and it was a matter of time before they were back to their best.
The Red devils managed to get passed Hull city to book themselves a final against Southampton in the English Football League cup. This could offer the gaffer a chance to win a real trophy in his first season at Old Trafford.
Mourinho guiding Manchester United back to success route slowly and in an entertaining way!
On 26th February, United and the Saints played in front of over 55,000 fans at Wembley to contest for the EPL cup and it was one game that they did not anticipate to have.
The Saints saw their goal by Gambiandini disallowed harshly by the Linesman. Moments later, United took the lead through an emphatic free kick by the old gun, Zaltan Ibrahimovic.
United then doubled their lead through a fine goal by Jesse Lingard, who just passed the ball into the back of the net after he was given so much space to compose himself and tap it away.
Gambiandini scored twice to bring the game level with two striker like goals as the Saints pushed the devils to the 80th minute where the big Swed again came to the rescue of Jose Mourinho to win them the game with a fine header.
Zlatan Ibrahimovic who was acquired for free in the summer has become the most integral player at Old Trafford scoring 26 goals in all competitions for the Red Devils.
With the good results that have been coming in for United, it is safe to say that Mourinho has turned the season around for the Red army. They even play entertaining football.
