Jose Mourinho has been officially presented as the new Manchester United manager.
As usual, the Portuguese manager was quite bullish with his statements and stated that he want to win everything with Manchester United.
He said that he wants to turn Manchester United into a competitive team and make sure that they win trophies. For him, it is not sufficient to play good football, but you need to win. Jose Mourinho admitted that the past three years have been difficult for Manchester United fans, but he believes he can turn things around.
He believes that the players should believe in themselves and make sure that they start winning again. Mourinho said that he is not aiming the fourth place or to get back in the Champions League. He is aiming the title itself and believes that Manchester United has the resources to achieve this as from next season itself.
It’s been over 4 months since Mario Gotze has played from the start of a Bayern Munich match and now the future of the 23 year old German midfielder is being linked with the both Liverpool and Manchester United.
Mario Gotze is considered to be one of the best youngsters in the world of football as the German player has everything that is needed to become an efficient midfielder with dribbling and play-making skills as well as having just enough speed to edge his way past defenders. Continue reading
Manchester United suffered a major injury setback with the news that Wayne Rooney will be missing around two months of action due to a knee injury. The forward suffered this ligament injury recently and this leaves the club with Anthony Martial as the recognised come forward within the squad.
Martial has been a decent scorer for United since his £ 36 million move from the French league in the summer. However, he is far from being a reliable source of goals for the club. At just 19 years of age, he is also very young to shoulder the responsibilities of such a big club. Continue reading
Louis Van Gaal says he had advised Adnan Januzaj to prefer a Premier League club over Borussia Dortmund for his loan spell, but, the Belgium international decided otherwise.
Januzaj had been included in the starting XI of United in some of the games at the start of the ongoing season and he’d even made a match winning contribution against the Villains, but, still Van Gaal felt it was hard to play the youngster regularly and it would be better for him if he plays somewhere else on loan.

Rio Ferdinand is very unhappy having seen his former club Manchester United play the way they have of late and he believes it’s the manager, Louis Van Gaal, who is to be blamed for that.
In the words of Ferdinand, ‘I would not blame the players because they have no option. The manager wants them to play in that fashion. If they try to be a little chancy and expressive on the pitch and it does not come off well, they might have to bear the consequences and they know that. So, they are taking the safe route, but, it’s taking the team in the backward direction.’
Louis Van Gaal says the minute he realizes that the understanding between him and the Red Devils players is getting worse; he will come to the decision of stepping down from his post without too much of hesitation.
There have been reports that Van Gaal’s way of working is not that much liked at Old Trafford. His training regime, in particular, is in question as many of the players are believed to have got irked by it.
But, according to the boss, there is no negativity in the Manchester United camp. There’s good understanding and coordination, otherwise, he would not have been continuing. Continue reading
Jonny Evans has backed Wayne Rooney to silence his critics. Evans, who played a lot of games alongside Rooney while at Old Trafford, believes Rooney is a feisty character and is capable of bouncing back from any situation.
Rooney has not been that productive in the Premier League games for United in the 2015-16 Season and has drawn criticism because of that. His numbers in the other competitions and also, in the international games have been alright, though there is no denying that the star striker from England has not looked like playing his best Football at all lately.

The Colombian attacker Radamel Falcao was initially signed by Manchester United on September of 2014 in a season long loan deal. The contract that was agreed had an option for Manchester United of turning that loan deal into a permanent one but that would only happen if Louis van Gaal and the supporters of the Premier League club were impressed by what Falcao managed to do during this season and it turns out that actually nobody was impressed by what Falcao did during his stint at Old Trafford.
In 26 Premier League appearances, Falcao managed to score 4 goals. This is a very disappointing statistic for a player who was once considered one of the top players in the world a few years ago when performing for the Spanish side Athletic Madrid. Continue reading
If somebody, who has not watched the English Football with that much attention of late, has been told that Manchester United has lost only 1 game in the Premier League in the last 4 months, he would think that the Red Devils are back to their lethal best under Louis Van Gaal.
But, it’s quite far from reality. The Red Devils might not be losing games or dropping points as frequently as they were doing the previous season, but, they are not making any progress either. They have, in fact, started playing defensive brand of Football now for which they are not known for. Continue reading
Manchester United’s lead at the top of the Premier League has been cut to five points following their 1-1 draw with Tottenham Hotspur at Old Trafford.
