With talk of a likely title charge doing the rounds after one of the most expensive transfer windows in their history, United have truly flattered to deceive this season with the side currently struggling to break into the top four.
Despite United already winning two trophies this season under Mourinho, questions have been asked of ‘Special One’ concerning United’s stuttering record at home.
With United drawing yet again at home to Everton, former Inter Milan player and coach, Dejan Stankovic has come out in support of Mourinho.
The pair worked together when Stankovic was a regular in Mourinho’s Internazionale treble winning team of 2009-10.
In an interview with sports news agency Omnisport, Stankovic had high praise for his former manager and backed the Portuguese coach to come good at United pointing to Mourinho’s success and dedication.
The Serbian especially mentioned what the Portuguese won’t settle for in a club as big as United. Check out the quotes, via MEN, below:
He drives on success and he definitely will not settle for partial success, especially in a club with tradition such as United.
Expect success because it is simply Mourinho.
He is fully dedicated to his work. He is focused on football and tactics. He knows how to bring out the best from a team in a physical and mental sense and makes good relations with players. Mourinho is simply special.
