Dwight Yorke has explained that Manchester United reaching the FA Cup Final is another example of the club going in the right direction under Jose Mourinho.
Man United face Chelsea at Wembley on Saturday evening in their final match of the season, and arguably the most important.
Yorke won the FA Cup once, as part of the 1998-99 treble-winning season, over his four-year stay at United and believes the current squad has what it takes to make it two triumphs in three campaigns.
Speaking ahead of the clash, Yorke said: “There is no lack of ability in this team. You look at Lukaku, Rashford, Sanchez, Lingard, Pogba, Mata, these are all great players.
It has the league’s second-best defensive record and, in David De Gea, the best keeper in the world,” he added. “They just need to get that mentality right for every game.”
There is no doubting the quality in United’s squad but there are still clear doubts over the mentality of some of Jose Mourinho’s players ahead of what is expected to be an exodus over the summer transfer window.
Yorke has seen improvements though, and many would agree with him by saying that the club is going in the correct decision under Mourinho after a flat three years after Sir Alex Ferguson’s retirement:
“United have gone from sixth to second and are now in a third major final in two seasons. Mourinho has got the club going in the right direction again. Wembley will provide another example of that.”
