Phil Jones: This is what Jose Mourinho has brought to Man United
Phil Jones discusses the impact that Jose Mourinho has had at Manchester United this season
Phil Jones has revealed that Jose Mourinho has brought a new sense of confidence to his Manchester United players following his arrival at the club.
The Portuguese coach was appointed as Louis van Gaal’s permanent successor at Old Trafford back in May but has made a mixed start to his reign at the club.
Mourinho has already watched his side lose five games in all competitions, with United already trailing Premier League leaders Chelsea by nine points after 12 games of the new campaign.
However, United defender Jones, who featured for the Red Devils against Arsenal on Saturday, praised Mourinho for showing faith in his players at Old Trafford.
Speaking in an interview with United’s website, Jones said: “It is nice for any player to hear the manager say nice things.
“He has been great for us since he has come in, he shows a lot of confidence in all of the players which is great.”
Manchester United will now turn their attentions back to Europa League affairs and their crunch clash with Dutch side Feyenoord at Old Trafford on Thursday night.
The Red Devils finished fifth and won the FA Cup under Louis van Gaal last season.
