Branislav Ivanovic insists Jose Mourinho is still the Special Once at Manchester United.
The Portuguese boss endured a mixed start to life at Old Trafford as his side sit sixth in the Premier League, however the team are currently fighting on four fronts and have great prospects for the campaign.
Man United have already had more shots on target this season (146) than in the whole of 2015-16 Premier League campaign (144), and it’s all looking up for the side as performances are finally exciting once again.
Speaking about Mourinho, Ivanovic was full of praise for the 54-year-old.
“They call Mourinho the Special One, and I think he is,” he said.
“If you win, his trust knows no bounds. He will make you fulfil the potential you were not even aware of.
“Training was unique under Mourinho. He sometimes plays mind games with the press, but when it comes to the most important things, the matches themselves, he is always very serious. If you want to play for Mourinho, you have to follow his demands.”
He won the Premier League with Mourinho and there’s no doubt that once the side settle to his tactics, there’s a good chance he’ll lift the trophy at Old Trafford.
It’s all shaping up for United and although there have been some issues with inconsistencies, it’s clear that once everything clicks United will be a force to be reckoned with.
