2) The United way
The one thing that Mourinho has stressed on time and again is the fact that, under him, United will no longer play the snooze infested game which characterized Van Gaal’s reign. The new manager is ready to give his attacking players more freedom.
This has been apparent in the preseason. When Antonio Valencia crossed for Zlatan’s goal against Galatasaray, Mourinho himself suggested that Valencia might not have done the same under LVG.
Similarly, Lingard’s burst of pace leading to his goal in the Community Shield, might not have been encouraged under the previous regime. All point to the fact that Mourinho is ready to take United back to their all-out attacking style of old.
