It’s not all been plain sailing for Jose Mourinho at Manchester United but there has been definite signs of improvement under the Portuguese.
Last season, David De Gea needed to produce world-class performances to scrape draws at home. This year, the opposition ‘keepers have been the world-beaters.
More recently, results have picked up significantly after the nadir of his reign came in Turkey as Fenerbahce humbled the English giants. United have gone unbeaten in eleven games since.
The Special One has today opened up on how he imagines his future at the Theatre of Dreams.
The former Madrid boss later paid tribute to the famed away-day fans of the club.
“The support is fantastic. I love the home games & I’ve huge respect for the fans who travel away. I can’t ask for any more from fans”
Following his side’s 2-0 win at West Brom, Mourinho ordered his charges to give their shirts to the travelling fans who made the trip to The Hawthorns.

The Reds currently sit sixth in the league but four wins on the trot has seen them close the gap on those above them. With a run of seemingly straightforward fixtures continuing as they host Middlesborough on Saturday while Manchester City face Liverpool, United could finish the year in much better shape than one might have predicted a few months ago.
