Mour­inho aims to unite fans

Lesotho Times - - Sport -

LON­DON — Jose Mour­inho (pic­tured) has called on Manch­ester United fans to play their part in the club’s fu­ture suc­cess.

Mour­inho has vowed to re­turn United to the top of English foot­ball and has al­ready signed Zla­tan Ibrahi­movic, Hen­rikh Mkhi­taryan and Eric Bailly this sum­mer, while Paul Pogba has been linked with a re­turn to his for­mer club from Ju­ven­tus.

But the for­mer Chelsea boss told the club’s of­fi­cial web­site that fans have a role and he is de­ter­mined to make them proud of their team again.

“I un­der­stand that they ex­pect a lot from me but I also ex­pect a lot from them,” he said. “There is no chance we will be happy if we are not to­gether and I think the pas­sion they have for this club is re­ally amaz­ing.

“It’s a new chap­ter in the club’s life. Al­ways when you change a man­ager, I feel it is a sad mo­ment but it is a new chap­ter now.

“We have brought a few new faces in, we will keep some oth­ers but, in the end, it doesn’t mat­ter who the man­ager is, it doesn’t mat­ter who the new play­ers are or who is stay­ing or leav­ing, it’s Man United and Man United is much more than any one of us.”

United face Wi­gan in a friendly at the DW Sta­dium on Satur­day in Mour­inho’s first match in charge and his stan­dards are high for the cam­paign ahead.
