Sir Bobby Charlton has welcomed Manchester United’s newly appointed coach Jose Mourinho on his first visit to the club as their manager.
Mourinho went to check out United’s Aon Training Complex at Carrington after organizing a Bank Holiday trip to the north-west side, with his assistant Rui Faria.
Manchester United legend Sir Bobby Charlton also arranged a special greeting to welcome Jose to the club, by slamming all the rumours claiming that the ex-Manchester United didn’t want the Special one at the Old Trafford.
Charlton said: “I very happy to see you with us, congratulations.”
“You killed my country’s dream in 1966, but I have much respect for you.
“Don’t congratulate me now. Now we have to win matches, then maybe congratulations.” : Mourinho replied.
Jose and Charlton had a nice conversation which wnt on for a while until the club’s executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward visited to take Jose to show the Aon Training Complex.
Mourinho had never visited the club before, thus it was an amazing experience for the Portuguese for sure. He visited the club’s premises after signing a three year contract and being appointed as Manchester United’s new manager to lead the Red Devils from the upcoming 2016/17 season.
The former Chelsea manager’s wife Matilde posted a picture of Mourinho on her Twitter account, which she took herself. The picture shows that Jose Mourinho have almost completed his trip to the north-west part and was looking happy after doing some shopping at the club shop of Manchester United.
Ed Woodward will look forward to speed up Mourinho’s plans so that he can complete the signings early, before July when the pre-season will begin. There is a list of targets that the club is eager to sign as soon as possible.
Manchester United have reportedly made an enquiry on highly rated Roma defender Kostas Manolas and are also all set to splash a huge amount, which is expected in the region of £54million for Atletico Madrid’s star midfielder of this season, Saul Niguez.
