Ever since his days of leading training sessions under the likes of Sir Bobby Robson, Jose Mourinho has established himself as an absolutely titanic figure within the world of football. Decorated with trophies at every club he has managed and known for being the ultimate winner, Mourinho’s charismatic and controversial personality has endeared and polarised fans and pundits alike over the years.
It has been a difficult summer for Manchester United fans. The 2018 World Cup turned out to be an unwelcome distraction in the end for the Red Devils; United were unable to make significant moves in the transfer market – much to the frustration of the Old Trafford crowd. You only need to look at Liverpool’s astute activity in the window to see just how stagnant United were this summer.
