Jose Mourinho suddenly finds himself master of all he conveys at Manchester United. Top of the league with maximum points, no goals conceded and a favourable goal difference, his start to the season has been flawless. Add in to that a relatively straightforward set of fixtures to start the season, rivals failing spectacularly in their efforts to land key signings on transfer deadline day, and a good Champions League draw, and it’s easy to see why Mourinho seems to have his mojo back.
Which is exactly why rivals, the press, and even Manchester United fans should beware. History shows us that Jose Mourinho in total control of what he’s trying to achieve only leads to one thing. Success.
History also shows us that whilst riding that wave of success Mourinho has a tendency to believe his own hype and fall off. Will Mourinho learn from the mistakes of the past, is it too early to predict he’s back to his enigmatic best? Watch and join the discussion on The United Stand YouTube debate.
