OFF: Mourinho's Second Season Magic, Four Other Things To Look Forward To

Adjust Comment Print

New signings Victor Lindelof, Romelu Lukaku and Nemanja Matic have all started strongly, with the £75m Belgian frontman netting against Zinedine Zidane's side in Skopje last Tuesday.

Mourinho won the league in his second seasons at Porto, Real Madrid and Inter Milan, as well as in both of his stints at Chelsea, but he expects this season's title race to be an almighty scrap.

JOSE MOURINHO, Manchester United manager, expressing his satisfaction with his new recruits.

"What would it mean for me to be the Premier League champion?"

"I am happy that the club managed to do 75 per cent of the work before the Premier League starts and, if until Aug 31 the remaining 25 per cent don't arrive, I will not moan".

Newcastle United will play in the Premier League this season after winning promotion from the Championship at the end of the 2016-17 campaign.

Chelsea also want the player with Antonio Conte determined to wrap up more signings.

"I just think naturally that a manger in the second season knows the players better, knows the club better".

NGAM Advisors LP Cuts Position in FS Investment Corporation (FSIC)
Creative Planning's holdings in FS Investment Corporation were worth $707,000 at the end of the most recent reporting period. Sumitomo Mitsui Trust Holdings Inc. increased its position in FS Investment Corporation by 2.2% in the second quarter.

This year, they will have to ensure that they bring back an aura of invincibility to Old Trafford and do not drop points, especially at home.

"I don't think I am going to win it because I always win it in the second season". On his own, how will Rooney feel lining up against Manchester United?

Not only that, but Crespo was talking about how he sees Mourinho, and the different personas the manager has in front of the media and in front of the players, and says that he loved working with Mourinho for three reasons.

A good summer of recruiting should ensure they enjoy a far more stable season this year, aiming to get back to the form that earned them a place in the qualifying rounds of the Europa League.

United scored the least goals of the seven teams to qualify for Europe from the Premier League last season at 54, 32 fewer than the highest in Tottenham.

United have been outspent by neighbours Manchester City but Mourinho has warned them it takes more than cash to be a victor. Now, he's in his second season and the clouds appear to be gathering over the Stamford Bridge skyline.

Spending such enormous amounts on players are not without the attendant pressure and, with the League season yet to kick off, bookmakers are already taking bets on which of the three will score the most number of goals.

The striker looks to have the physicality and keen eye for goal to thrive in the Premier League, but does he have the right mentality?
