Dwight Yorke makes Man United claim: Something special about to happen under Jose Mourinho

The former Manchester United striker is excited about the club's potential under Jose Mourinho

Dwight Yorke believes Manchester United are on the cusp of something special under Jose Mourinho.

The Red Devils have won their last nine games in all competitions to help Manchester United to significant progress on four different fronts in recent months.

The 20-time English champions have moved to within three points of the top four and are 10 points adrift of Premier League leaders Chelsea ahead of the visit of Liverpool on Sunday afternoon.

Mourinho’s side booked their place in the FA Cup fourth round on Saturday afternoon after a 4-0 win against Reading thanks to goals from Wayne Rooney, Marcus Rashford and Anthony Martial.

Manchester United seized control of their EFL Cup semi-final clash on Tuesday night after Juan Mata and Marouane Fellaini scored second-half goals in a 2-0 victory over Hull City in the first leg at Old Trafford.

The Manchester club have a Europa League last-32 clash against French side Saint Etienne to look forward to next month.

Speaking to talkSPORT, Yorke delivered an exciting verdict on Manchester United.

“They seem to have that mojo back,” said Yorke, speaking on the Alan Brazil Sports Breakfast.

“I went in to the club yesterday and the change and contrast in that club from six months ago is enormous.

“You speak to people behind the scenes and they are so much happier, there is so much confidence. The change is like, wow, is this the same place as six months ago?

“The players are enjoying training, they are looking forward to it the next day.

“These players are really focused and sensing something really special is about to happen at Manchester United.”
