Jose Mourinho pinpoints the reason for Man United’s upturn in form

Jose Mourinho believes that Manchester United's team spirit has been a key factor in the Red Devils' improved form

Jose Mourinho believes that Manchester United’s improving team spirit has been one of the factors behind the Red Devils’ upturn in form in recent weeks.

Manchester United have been in much improved form in the Premier League in recent weeks and have won their last four top-flight games on the spin.

The Red Devils had been struggling to find consistent form under new boss Mourinho following his appointment at Old Trafford back in May but seem to now be finding their feet under the Portuguese coach.

And Mourinho believes that Manchester United’s team-spirit has been a big contributing factor in the Red Devils’ improved form.

Speaking to United Review, Mourinho said: “The team spirit I see is just fantastic, it is getting better every single day and I think that is showing in the way we are playing, because some of the football we have produced in recent weeks has been very good.

“We have been playing well for a long time but it was important that we started getting the points that our performances deserved.

“Now that we are, it is up to us to maintain that momentum with more good victories.”

Manchester United are currently preparing for their Premier League clash against Middlesbrough at Old Trafford on Saturday.

The Red Devils are currently in sixth place in the table and 13 points behind Premier League leaders Chelsea after 18 games of the new campaign.
