Zlatan Could Return as… Coach?

Club sources say Mourinho sees Ibrahimovic as a similar figure to Didier Drogba, who can offer the squad expertise and experience, but also serve as a bridge between manager and players.

Interesting development.

Premier League is the Main Target

Nemanja Matic on ESPN:

“We have to rest well because we have a very important game on Sunday against West Ham. It’s the start of the Premier League and it’s very important for us.

As you know the Premier League is the main target. There is a lot of games, it’s a long season but I expect us to do well.”

First game of the 2017/2018 season is coming as soon as this weekend. I can’t wait.

How the Super Cup changed the future of Romelu Lukaku Forever

Chelsea loaned Lukaku to Everton just after Super Cup final in Prague 4 years ago.

Mourinho:

“Romelu is a young boy who likes to speak. The only thing he didn’t say is why he went to Everton on loan. That’s the only thing he never says. That’s what I’m telling him now: ‘Tell the country why you left’.

When you enjoy to speak, speak everything. Don’t speak only half of it. Speak everything. It’s a simple question: ‘Why did you leave Chelsea?’ Ask him.”

The answer is a good story.

Welcome to Manchester United, Nemanja Matic!

The club announced that they’ve signed Serbian midfielder Nemanja Matic. To me the new no. 31 is a very good signing because of 2 main reasons:

  1. Jose Mourinho trusts him.
  2. He will free Paul Pogba to attack, where he’s good at.

Exciting times ahead!

Underrated Carrick

Calm and composed is Carrick’s main attribute to boss United midfield for so long. Paul Ansorge over at Bleacher Report compile some of the new captain’s most important role at United games over the years into a very pleasant read.

Mourinho: “De Gea is Staying!”

I can guarantee that he is not going this season” is the best statement from the boss regarding David De Gea I’ve heard for a while.

Can’t wait for the new season to start!

Captain Carrick

I saw this happen when I heard news about Wayne Rooney was leaving the club. Michael Carrick is a United legend he totally deserved it, but shouldn’t a club captain is someone who plays week in week out?

I am not complaining though. Congratulations Captain Carrick!

Welcome to Manchester United Romelu Lukaku!

The club announced they’ve agreed fee with Everton FC for the transfer of Romelu Lukaku. Not my all time favorite player but he’s tested in the premier league for years already, scoring a lot of goals, and he’s only 24.

Welcome to Manchester United!

Time for Smalling to Go?

Chris Smalling was recruited by Sir Alex Ferguson to do one task: to replace centre-back Rio Ferdinand. A task proven impossible so far.

He was accused to be the main reason why United lose to city rival after his red card, but bounced back and show his best performance in 2015/2016 season. The performance rewarded by “Players’ Player of the Year” by the end of the season, but it’s all going down hill from there.

Now Jose Mourinho is set to partner Eric Bailly with Victor Lindelof, the Portuguese boss is reportedly will sell the English centre-back with several clubs are monitoring his situation.

It’s always sad to see a player leave. But after his performance last season, and the fact that he never reached the height we expected, I can’t see a reason to keep him.

Welcome to Manchester United Victor Lindelof!

It seems like Jose Mourinho has finally find a first choice to partner with Eric Bailly in the heart of his defense. Only 22 years old (Eric is 23), the Swedish center-back seems like a very good signing. His personalities, skills, and many more reasons.

Welcome to Manchester United!
