Why Jose Mourinho is still the right man to lead Manchester United

In recent week’s the future of the Manchester United boss has been thrown into doubt after some poor performances, questionable decisions and some pretty explosive outbursts that have cast doubt on the desire of some of his team. Despite all that, the former Real Madrid and Chelsea boss is still the man to lead the Reds into a new era, and this is why.

From the moment that Jose Mourinho arrived at Old Trafford, he has made an instant impact and has undoubtedly improved the side. Just look at his record, in his first season at the helm he won both the Carabao Cup and the Europa League and led the Reds back to the Champions League.

He has a knack of winning trophies at big clubs, and although he doesn’t tend to play the type of attacking style of football United fans are used to he gets results.

Everyone knew that after Sir Alex Ferguson left the club back in 2013, United would have to go through a period of transition to get back to where we once were, and it appears as if we are at the back-end of that period under Mourinho.

Yes, the team is probably still short of three to four top quality players but the signings the Portuguese man has made have most definitely improved the squad.

Unlike his time at other sides, he is willing to give the youth a United a chance to prove themselves. He has given 20-year-old Marcus Rashford the chance play, and despite his recent criticism of the England player, he is starting to see the best from him.

As well as Rashford, Jesse Lingard and Scott McTominay have become mainstays in the United team this season, the former being in the scoring form of his life, and a shoe-in to go to the World Cup.

The results of the past month, haven’t reflected the progress that Mourinho has made with the team, and despite going out of the Champions League to an under-strength Sevilla side, United are set to finish the highest they have in the League since 2013.

He has also come out and reiterated his desire to stay and the fact he is happy at the club. He told Sky Sports back in January:

“As I said when I arrived, I am going to leave when the club wants me to leave because I have no intention to leave at all.

“My intention is to stay and to work and to improve and to bring the club to where the club belongs.”

The fact the United boss wants to see the project through and to get the club back to winning trophies on a regular basis shows how despite his recent outburst against players, he only wants the best and he is trying his best to get a reaction out of players he feels aren’t performing.

He has been criticised for recent press conferences, especially when he has targeted certain players for their lack of desire, but he isn’t doing it because he wants to make the players look bad, he is trying to get the best out of his players.

It would be a real mistake to get rid of a man who has won titles at every club he has been at and has always succeeded wherever he has gone. Obviously, every United fan wants the club to be challenging in the League and Champions League, but the project under Mourinho is not yet complete.

We are continuing to get closer, and it’s inevitable that under such a manager as Jose Mourinho we will once again be back at the top of English football.
