Jose Mourinho hoping to continue second-season success record with Manchester United

"We are in a position to do quality work better than we did in the first season, so I am convinced that our second season, in terms of the quality of our team, is going to be better".

The Portuguese tactician guided the Red Devils to their maiden UEFA Europa League crown in his first campaign, and will get his second underway with a Premier League test against West Ham United on Sunday. He said, as quoted by the Manchester Evening News. He will have to fill Zlatan Ibrahimovic's shoes and endure a lot of scrutiny and pressure. My dedication to my job is always at the maximum, even more now than when I started, and I believe at the end of the season we will see the results. Star signing Pogba struggled to live to his full potential (and price tag), with only five goals and four assists in domestic football.

Jose Mourinho admits that Nemanja Matic was the "perfect" type of defensive midfield player he coveted when he walked into the Old Trafford hotseat 15 months ago. Victor [Lindelof] can play right-back, centre midfield. "They can still be like new players for us later in the season, so we are fine".

Mourinho knows they were over-reliant on the injured striker's goals and wants more support for this season's main man, Romelu Lukaku. Sergio Romero represents a solid second choice, who is happy to step up when called on. "But there are not many around and I do not like to go after players where it is an impossible mission".

"I appreciate the good words about myself that Mourinho speaks". While the 29-year-old can often cut a frustrating figure, he has shown he is an effective plan B for Mourinho to rely on.

The big question still remains whether Mourinho can forge a consistent starting side out of his squad after a year in which injuries hampered any attempt at continuity. My work last season to face teams in the Europa League with commitment was hard, this season it is not hard to motivate for playing Real Madrid, Barcelona, the top English teams, Bayern Munich and Juventus.

Asked if Manchester United was his team now, he didn't hesitate to agree.

This year, they will have to ensure that they bring back an aura of invincibility to Old Trafford and do not drop points, especially at home. Arsenal the same, they didn't sell the top players like Ozil, Alexis, that some expected.

"In my other clubs what I had was more players scoring goals", he said.

Former United forward Hernandez was let go by the club permanently in 2015, moving to Bayer Leverkusen for only £7.3m when Louis van Gaal was in charge of the side.
