Jose Mourinho, who became the Manchester United manager this season, has now revealed the changes he made at the club upon his arrival.
Mourinho has explained how he made changes at Manchester United to improve the team’s performance.
After three years of struggle, the Old Trafford club seems to be performing much better under the Portuguese, thanks to some of the changes he made in training sessions, so as to improve the level of every player and their performance.

“We have lots of things to improve at a lot of levels,” Mourinho explained. “As an example, it looks like it’s not important – I think it is – one thing is the training session with a desert of grass. When somebody kicks the ball and the ball goes five kilometres away.
“Another thing is you give a look now and it looks a proper training ground. Very good conditions to work, protected from the wind, the intensity of the training session is much higher, that is just a simple detail and we have lots of details to improve.”
Even though the individual performance has improved, Manchester United are still struggling to get into top four this season. After 17 games, they have earned just 30 points this season.
Mourinho spoke about this problem by stating: “Look, I can answer you in many different ways but if we beat at home Stoke, Arsenal, Burnley and West Ham, which we totally deserved to, we would be second.
“Second. So it doesn’t matter the reflections we do, doesn’t matter, the opinions and ideas I can give you, the reality is that what we are now with eight more points that we totally deserved. And I’m not speaking about the points against Manchester City that we lost and we shouldn’t, because it was a penalty and a red card, and 2-2 and 30 more minutes to go.”
“But even with the points we lost at home we would be second. There are no ifs, we are in the position we are but this is the reality, we could be closer. But we are not and we have a lot of things to improve at a lot of levels.”
Manchester United are currently on an 11-match undefeated streak across all competitions. They will be looking to extend the run when they next face Middlesbrough at Old Trafford.
