Manchester United

5 issues Mourinho simply has to sort immediately at Man United if he joins

PAGE 2/6

Style of play


One of the first things which Jose Mourinho must address as a matter of urgency when he takes over first-team affairs at Old Trafford is the style of play.

Louis van Gaal has been determined to play with a 3-5-2 system since his arrival, which is fine given that the Dutchman has won trophies galore playing with that system throughout his career.

The problem which the Dutchman has is that he has no flexibility to transform the system into an attractive one, which plays free-flowing football.

It is all good and well playing this negative, defensive football on the continent but the Premier League is unforgiving and it has taken the majority of the top flight no time at all to suss out exactly what van Gaal’s United are all about.
