The Special One’s wife, Matilde Mourinho, recently posted a picture on social media that seems to show Mourinho’s tactics – with Captain Wayne Rooney in a number 10 role, and possibly the confirmation of the Paul Pogba transfer.
The picture, which was posted a few hours ago, has sparked debate all over the globe, bringing about all sorts of rumors and allegations.
Matilde posted a picture of her husband standing in a room, with what looks like a tactics board behind him. It is hard to make out what is written on the board, as the picture is blurry. But it seems to show that the Portuguese tactician plans not to play his Captain in a striking role.
It also looks like Mourinho has placed Paul Pogba in his midfield plans, possibly confirming that the French International is on his way to Old Trafford.
Another interesting point from the picture is that the Portuguese manager has included Juan Mata in his midfield, meaning that the Special is prepared to give a Spaniard a chance.
The rest looks pretty standard, with De Gea in goal, Shaw as a left-back, Smalling as a center back, and Carrick as a central midfielder.
The new Manchester United boss has been welcomed by fans from around the globe, as they eagerly wait to see him try his skills and knowledge out in the Old Trafford hot-seat.
Jose Mourinho is known to favor the 4-2-3-1 formation – as this gives the players a rigid and dependable structure. The Portuguese man has also been known for his “park the bus” tactics, which involves retaining ball possession and avoiding attacks when you are ahead.
The fans are also eager to find out which players Jose is going to field, with recent signings Zlatan Ibrahimović, Henrikh Mkhitaryan, and Eric Bailly all brought in to help the Red Devils fuel a title charge.
