Jose Mourinho at Old Trafford for Soccer Aid 2016 with Brazilian legend Pele

by Sam Peoples

Jose Mourinho is at Old Trafford tonight for the first time since being appointed manager of Manchester United.

He’s taking charge of an England team in Soccer Aid 2016 and will be getting used to his new surroundings, although his first competitive game in charge won’t come around until August 7 in the Community Shield against Leicester City at Wembley.

After arriving, Mourinho shared a picture of him alongside Brazilian legend Pele. Sharing on his Instagram account, Mourinho said: “An honour to host Pele at my new house.”

Mourinho, manager of Man United. It’s definitely not sunk in quite yet but we’ll get our first taste of it in July during our pre-season tour of China where we’ve got games against Borussia Dortmund and Manchester City. That can’t come round quick enough as far as fans are concerned because excitement is already building.

With a few new signings under his belt, Mourinho has the capability to turn United into title challengers next season and after three years of turmoil sine Sir Alex Ferguson left, that’s going to be ace.
