Morgan Schneiderlin reacts to Jose Mourinho’s arrival at Man United

Morgan Schneiderlin was thrilled to see Jose Mourinho appointed as Manchester United's new manager last week

Morgan Schneiderlin is backing Jose Mourinho to be the right man to bring the Premier League title back to Manchester United this summer.

The Portuguese coach was finally appointed as the Red Devils’ new manager last week after months of speculation linking him with the Old Trafford Role.

Mourinho signed a three-year contract with United last Friday, just days after the club opted to sack former manager Louis van Gaal.

And France midfielder Schneiderlin has revealed his excitement at learning about Mourinho’s appointment at Old Trafford.

Speaking at a France news conference on Friday, Schneiderlin said: “As everybody knows, Jose is one of the best coaches in the world.

“I don’t know him personally but I spoke to Lassana Diarra at [France training camp] and he only said good things about him.

“I’m really looking forward to working with him, finding out his methods and winning back the title at Manchester United.”

Mourinho had been out of work since his sacking by Chelsea back in December.

Attentions will now inevitably turn towards the summer transfer window and Mourinho’s plans to revamp his squad at Old Trafford ahead of his first season in charge of the Red Devils.
