Pundit: Jose Mourinho will be happy with three of his four Man United signings
Jose Mourinho will be happy with most of his summer signings at Manchester United, according to Tony Cottee
Jose Mourinho will be pleased with three of his four Manchester United signings this season, according to Tony Cottee.
The Portuguese coach moved to bring Eric Bailly, Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Paul Pogba and Henrikh Mkhitaryan to the club last summer as he bolstered his squad ahead of his first season in charge at Old Trafford.
All four players have been in decent form for the Red Devils as Manchester United look to break back into the top four this season under the Portuguese coach.
However, because Bailly has been out of action due to a knee injury for parts of the season, Cottee feels that Mourinho will only be pleased with Pogba, Mkhitaryan and Ibrahimovic’s impacts so far this season.
Speaking to Sky Sports News HQ, Cottee said: “They’ve gone a bit unnoticed.
“They’ve gradually crept up there and now they’re a point behind the top four.
“It’s taken a while for Jose to get his ideas across and to find the right players.
“They made four really good signings in the summer – he’ll be pleased with three of them as one of them has been injured a bit.
“If you ask me now whether Man United will finish in the top four, I think they will.
“They must get into the Champions League.”
Manchester United are currently sixth in the Premier League table this season as they bid to break back into the Champions League places this season.
