Jose Mourinho’s men finished second in the Premier League last season, 19 points behind eventual champions Man City.
That was the highest finish for the club since Sir Alex Ferguson left in 2013, however, the Portuguese boss was still criticised for the style of football he has employed at Old Trafford.
Not much has changed at the start of the new campaign, with Man United already six points off the pace at the top after suffering two defeats in their opening four games.
Mourinho has again come under scrutiny from the media for the team’s performances, but club legend Schmeichel is adamant that the situation is being exaggerated.
He told talkSPORT: “I don’t believe for one minute there is any unrest in that dressing room. I think they are working to a plan and it’s kind of going to plan. It’s not this unsuccessful place that I read about and listen to in the media.
“There’s a Europa League win, there’s a League Cup win, there’s two FA Cup finals and they were runners-up to an incredible Manchester City side last year. I think, all in all, that’s not too bad.
“What I see is progress; it’s getting better, we’ve got better players, more exciting players, players who are inspirational for the fans. People want to get to Old Trafford to see these guys play.
“At some point, everything will gel together and Jose will have the kind of team that he really wants and I’m sure that we’re going to see a much more different Man United team and performance.”
