Maybe not the manager many people wanted but he's definitely what's needed. Proven premier league manager which is obviously a plus. Won trophies in every league he's played in. Gets the best out of his players (until they revolt ) but hopefully it won't come to that and he's probably the only manager out there who can rub shoulders with the likes of Pep, Klopp, Conte , Wenger and the new breed of managers like Pochettino and Koeman and not forgetting the current league champions. As long as he plays attractive football and gives our youth a chance then I'm sure he will start to win the doubters over. Nothing left to say except welcome Mou.
not official but we reached a level of the rumour that he is almost certain to have signed.
Rio confirmed it and others close to United. Its inevitable from now.
After 6 months of rumours every day I am finally resigned to the idea of him managing and can see at least some positives from that but foremost have come to the conclusion that there is just no alternative out there which is better. The only one comin close in terms of a winning mentality which our club urgently needs to reestablish is Simeone but his antics are the same the football even worse.
Mourinho said: "To become Manchester United manager is a special honour in the game. It is a club known and admired throughout the world. There is a mystique and a romance about it which no other club can match.
"I have always felt an affinity with Old Trafford; it has hosted some important memories for me in my career and I have always enjoyed a rapport with the United fans. I'm looking forward to being their manager and enjoying their magnificent support in the coming years."
........ that Drogba goal is haunting me now .............

I hope he is successful, brings the attacking football that we crave, behaves himself and gives the youth a meaningful chance.
Well, we are talking about Mourinho you must definately lower your expactions there ;-)
The positive is, he's a winner and doesn't tell us to lower our expectations reagrding the status of the club. If he reestablishes the winning mentality back into the club he has fulfilled his job. We will have to accept Jose antics, don't think anyone, not even Sir Alex, can have an influence on his behaviour. If have little hope rgarding attacking football. He has also managed teams that scored plenty. In case of youth it will problay hurt me to what see is coming...
José Mourinho will take over as manager of Manchester United from the 2016/17 season, signing a three-year contract with an option to stay at the club until at least 2020.
José, 53, has managed at the top level of European football for over a decade and in that time has won league titles and cups in four countries (Portugal, England, Italy and Spain), as well as winning the UEFA Champions League twice – in 2004 with FC Porto and in 2010 with Inter Milan.
Announcing the appointment, Ed Woodward said: "José is quite simply the best manager in the game today. He has won trophies and inspired players in countries across Europe and, of course, he knows the Premier League very well, having won three titles here.
"I’d like to take this opportunity to welcome him to Manchester United. His track record of success is ideal to take the club forward."
