If Jose becomes Man Utd's new manager
With the potential imminent announcement come the end of the season of Jose Mourinho’s takeover at Manchester United here are 4 possible scenarios we may see at Old Trafford this summer and over the course of next season.
Rooney Made Captain
Wayne Rooney will remain captain of the club. We often see upheaval when new managers arrive at clubs however it’s no secret that Jose is a huge admirer of Wayne Rooney and his style of play.
Mourinho tried to purchase Rooney back at Stamford Bridge a few years ago when there was talk of negotiations failing between Wayne and the club - however nothing subsided. Jose will be sure to stick to the Englishmen who has provided consistent goals, assists and work ethic to the Red Devils faithful’s over so many years.
Statistically, it looks as though this season will be United's lowest goals tally in the Premer League. They've notched up just 40 goals so far, and they don't look anything like beating the 54 goals of 2003/04. With strikers such as Depay, Rooney and Martial struggling to find the back of the net that often, fans have had to be resourceful about where they get their thrills, with many turning to sites such as mobilecasinoaustralia.com.au to get that winning feeling back - especially because they have a section of the site dedicated to football-themed games that they can easily relate to!
Jose Mourinho's side are renowned for being well drilled defensivley, but if you think back to the days of Robben, Duff, Drogba and Mutu, you will remember that he has the propensity to get his teams playing open, flowing football - something that fans are dreaming about these days.
Juan Mata may be shifted aside. If recent memory is anything to go by then Juan Mata won’t be liking the reports coming out of every paper’s gossip column right now.
Despite being Chelsea player of the year two years in a row Jose Mourinho decided to fizzle Mata out of Chelsea’s first team plans and eventually sold him to Premier League rivals United for a hefty fee. Rumours are that Mourinho was not fond of Mata’s work rate – who is often criticised for being lightweight and not aiding in defensive phases of play.
Big Names In
Big names will be brought in to reinforce the squad. If there’s anything we know about big name managers – and Mourinho is the hugest name in football – it’s that they will always attract the biggest and brightest superstars.
The United squad currently needs a lot of development in order to challenge for the league once again whilst being competitive in Europe also. Mourinho will make sure United bring in quality and where it’s needed to fix the squad.
