It’s our time.That would be the perfect way of describing Manchester United in the current transfer window.The red devils of Old Trafford are leaving nothing behind at all and with the wizardry coaching tactics of their controversial tactician, former Porto, Inter Millan,Real Madrid and Chelsea coach Jose Mourinho,it’s widely clear that the Manchester outfit club is back again as the once feared and powerful club not only in England but also in the entire world.
Having signed 3 world-class footballers in Swedish reliable defender Lindelof,Belgium free scoring forward Romelu Lukaku and poaching an instrumental midfielder from last season’s winners Chelsea Serbian Nemanja Matic, it’s now obvious that the team is on a mission.
Many football fanatics across the globe were perturbed by the decision taken by mourinho to rob his former team Chelsea for the hard-tackling midfielder and his reply was simple.”Nemanja is a Manchester United player and a Jose Mourinho player,” he told the club’s official website. “He represents everything we want in a footballer; loyalty, consistency, ambition, team player.Indeed, those are the attributes the blues will be missing from the 2 time premier league winner next season.
“I would like to thank him for his desire to join us because without that, it would be impossible to have him here. I am sure our players and supporters will love him. A big welcome to our new number 31.”
Matic, for his part, is delighted to be reunited with his former boss and is eager to hit the ground running with his new club.
“I am delighted to have joined Manchester United,” he added. “To work with Jose Mourinho once again was an opportunity I couldn’t turn down.
Mourinho trusts Matic having worked with him before at Chelsea .
“I have enjoyed my time at Chelsea and would like to thank the club and the fans for their support. I cannot wait to meet my new team-mates and to start training with them.
“This is a very exciting time for the club and I am looking forward to playing my part in creating more history for this great club.”
Indeed the seasons trumpet has been sounded.It’s a threat to the other ‘big teams’ and as history dictates, this season’s title will be United’s to lose since it will be Mourinho’s second season at the club and with his luck of winning league titles in his second season, the odds are high for him.
Despite the other teams strengthening their stands with world-class players, bought at huge amounts,stiff competition is expected but I tip the red devils to carry the day.”A Pogba-Matic-Herrera midfield will be a combination made in heaven”,commented Alan Shearer,former Newcastle and premier league legend. It’s up to the team to prove and with Mourinho,all we can say is that the great Manchester United is back.How I pity my favourite team,Chelsea.
