The new manager of Manchester United, Jose Mourinho, has started his first official day as the boss at Old Trafford. Reports and his body-language indicate, since signing for the Red Devils, that the new manager has set about trying to return the biggest football club in the world to the top of English football.
Mourinho arrived at Manchester Piccadilly station shortly after midnight on Monday morning ahead of his first day at Old Trafford, where he will plot to improve United’s fifth-place Premier League finish last season – which was chaperoned by the flying Dutchman, Louis Van Gaal.
He announced his arrival on Instagram, accompanying by the short video of him alighting the train with the message “I am here/UNITED we can.”
Mourinho had posted a video of his arrival at Manchester Piccadilly train station, ready to start work at the Aon Training Complex ahead of the much-anticipated 2016/17 season.
Using his personal Instagram account, the new Manchester United manager uploaded a short clip of him stepping off his train – coincidentally from coach J – in the small hours of Monday morning and he captioned it with the words: “I am here/UNITED we can.”

Thousands of Reds supporters commented on the Instagram post, with one writing “Good luck to the best manager in the world” and another saying “I still can’t believe you are with us”. One even lamented a missed meeting by claiming “I just left the platform a minutes before he arrived”.
The former Real Madrid and Inter Milan boss, who was sacked by Chelsea in December, will take his first news conference on Tuesday after being appointed successor to Louis van Gaal in May.
Up Man U!
