Jose Mourinho: Manchester United are a strong team

by Tanveer Arayan


Jose Mourinho has given his verdict on Manchester United’s 4-1 victory over Leicester City at Old Trafford on Saturday afternoon.

His side tore the Premier League champions apart with four goals in the space on 20 minutes during the first-half.

After losing three games in quick succession last week, Mourinho has turned the ship perfectly, with a win over Northampton and Leicester.

Speaking after the game, he claimed his side were very strong.

“We were very strong against a team I repeat that is very easy to analyse but very difficult to cope with,” he said.

“This season we beat them already twice so I think it’s a good performance. The team shone. We score four goals.

“The striker plays phenomenal but doesn’t score a goal. Ibra was keen, important. I am happy when he does that in a positive way. Rooney is a big player for me, a big player for United and a big player for his country. He is my man. He is happy.”

It was one of our best showings since Sir Alex Ferguson retired and it’s a short preview of what fans are strapped in for under Mourinho.

He is still learning his best XI at Man United, but once his team clicks together and his plan falls into place, they’ll be tearing up teams in the league, as we’ve seen against Leicester today.
