Why did Manchester United sign him? – Feyenoord vs Manchester United Review

Mourinho’s first European game in charge of Manchester United did not go to plan as it was more reminiscent of a game under Van Gaal than a Manchester United team making a statement after a derby loss. Continue reading

Time to start Rashford! – Manchester United vs Manchester City Review

The highly anticipated Manchester derby didn’t go to plan for Jose Mourinho as a very shaky first half all but sealed the victory for City.
