Old Trafford pitch getting re-laid for beginning of 2016/17 season

by Sam Peoples

There might be no football in Manchester at the moment but it’s still very busy at Old Trafford with the new pitch being re-laid ahead of the 2016/17 season.

Next year is going to be a real fresh start for Manchester United in so many ways. Jose Mourinho will take charge in his first year as manager, we’ll have plenty of new signings including Eric Bailly and after three years since Sir Alex Ferguson we look as prepared as we’ve ever been to move on properly after the Scotsman.

To say the last three have been underwhelming is an understatement. David Moyes was sacked after a terrible seven months in charge and although Louis van Gaal‘s tenure ended with an FA Cup win at Wembley, the Dutchman being sacked was considered inevitable by a large majority of United fans from as early as December when we lost four consecutive games.

There’s so much to be excited about at United next year with Mourinho coming in and he’s got a great record throughout his career of turning his home grounds into a fortress. To give credit to him, van Gaal had one of the best Premier League home records last season but Mourinho will be looking to go undefeated at home all season and with a new pitch under the players’ feet, Old Trafford will be ready for it as well.
