United stars buzzing
A United source has told the Mirror that there's now a great atmosphere at the club and the players are 'absolutely buzzing'.
The source stated: “The players have been bowled over by the manager already inside just a few days – the training ground feels alive again and there is a spring in everyone’s step.
“Michael Carrick is one of the senior players but he was saying he wished he was 25 again and facing a few years playing for Mourinho.
“The place is absolutely buzzing.
"The previous manager was very thorough in his planning and preparation and on the training ground but it all felt a little bit regimented.
"Some of the staff have already nicknamed Jose ‘Mr Meticulous’ because of his attention to detail – but the mood feels a lot lighter, albeit super-professional.
“The players know Jose will be demanding, but they are excited. They want to be competing for the league title again.”
