Paul Ince: Why Jose Mourinho is the right man for Man United

Former Manchester United midfielder Paul Ince believes Jose Mourinho is the right man for the club

Paul Ince is adamant that Jose Mourinho is the right man to rebuild Manchester United.

The Red Devils are in sixth place in the Premier League table and 13 points behind leaders Chelsea after 14 games following a disappointing start to life under Mourinho.

The 20-time English champions are nine points adrift of fourth-placed Arsenal ahead of United’s clash with Tottenham at Old Trafford on Sunday.

Mourinho’s side will have the chance to move to within three points of fifth-placed Tottenham ahead of their clash as the Red Devils look to return to winning ways.

Manchester United have drawn their last three Premier League games after 1-1 stalemates with Arsenal, Everton and West Ham United.

Former Red Devils midfielder Ince believes Mourinho’s side is taking shape despite disappointing results in recent weeks.

“f anyone can help Manchester United to evolve and return to their former glory, it’s Jose Mourinho,” Ince told Paddy Power’s website.

“Despite the results, you can see from the last four or five games that Manchester United are starting to take shape. They have been more dominant than the other team. The signs are all there, Mourinho is gradually taking them back to where they want to get to.”

Mourinho was named as Louis van Gaal’s successor in May after Manchester United’s fifth-place finish last term.
