blog details: It’s official. Manchester United have finally appointed former Chelsea, Inter and Porto boss Jose Mourinho as manager on a contract of 3 years, extendable up to 2020 which reportedly pays out more than £20 million to Mourinho. After months of speculation on the part of some people and wishful thinking on some others, United have ended their association with Dutchman Louis Van Gaal before welcoming Mourinho on board. Mourinho though is coming in on the back of a nightmare Premier League season that saw Chelsea flirt with relegation and resulted in an unceremonious sacking of ‘The Special One’ as Chelsea boss. United loyalists have shown their doubts over the appointment of the former Chelsea boss but the support has been overwhelming with many saying this could be a real reversal for both Mourinho and United’s fortunes.
With history and tradition behind them, United have not really been United ever since Sir Alex left the helm in 2013, with the recent FA Cup victory being the only title they can boast of. While Mourinho’s reign may not see United playing football that is easy on the eyes, they will surely become a force to be reckoned with. The master tactician that he is, Mourinho is bound to see United play compelling and tactical football that brings results even though it may not draw gasps from the audience. His credentials can’t be ignored. With 8 Premier League titles, 2 Champions League trophies, and 7 domestic titles under his belt, the Special One could well herald an era of post-Ferguson greatness at United.
With the arrival of Mourinho, United can also expect explosive names in World Football to follow in his wake. Zlatan Ibrahimovic has already dropped hints and smiles when asked about renewing his ties with old Inter-coach Mourinho at United. Mourinho has reportedly been given a £300 million war chest that could well be utilized to bring in some talent. Alvaro Morata might fetch a £40 million price tag which would strengthen United’s forward line. Defence has been a major cause of grief for United and Mourinho wants no more of it. On his wish list he has already added Everton’s John Stones, Real Madrid’s Raphael Varane, Roma’s Kostas Manolas and Ezequiel Garay of Zenit St. Petersburg to reinforce the United defence. And in a move that could well change the complete demographics of the Premier League, Chelsea have been approached by United to let Mourinho-favourite Eden Hazard make a move to United which would make United a force to reckon with.
There are a number of detractors of course who would say Mourinho is past his prime and he does violate one of United’s fundamental way of ensuring they stay one of the premier clubs in the competition history of all major tournaments. United’s famed academy has produced some of the illustrious names in club football and occasionally international football. Jose Mourinho on the other hand is all for signing big names to stay at the top of the competition. This does pose a serious question but United fans can hope to regain some lost glory.
