José Mourinho’s Manchester United FC deserves an award after too many Premier League draws

England’s most valuable football club Manchester United FC have had fairly good results this season with the coming in of the Portuguese expert coach José Mourinho aka The Special One.

José Mourinho, the Special One
Last season, many Manchester United fans complained of boring football. They said the players were slow and less entertaining. After winning last season’s FA Cup and finishing 5th on the English Premier League Classification Table, Louis Van Gaal was sacked as Manchester United Manager and replaced by José Mourinho.

LVG, Man Utd Manager 2015/2016
At the end of last season, LVG’s results were not as bad as the boring football. He won the FA Cup, and in the Premier League he had the following results;

  • Matches Played: 38
  • Wins: 19
  • Losses: 10
  • Draws: 9
  • Hit woodwork: 9
  • Big chances missed: 28

Mourinho is not Van Gaal so his story should be different as well. Mourinho has long been known as the Special One owing to his brilliant records as Chelsea FC Manager( though it ended in a fiasco). Manchester United are more familiar with draws than boring football this season. Mourinho did good business by bringing to Old Trafford big names such as Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Paul Pogba just to name a few. 

I’m a Manchester United fan and I can no longer withstand the criticisms from friends and mates who know I’m a Utd fan. They call us draw masters and call Mourinho draw specialist. They are not wrong.

Mourinho has however suffered injustice. I call it injustice because his team had enough chances to convert most of these draws to wins.
