Life in the Premier League with Jose Mourinho was never going to be dull, and it is not going to be at Manchester United, either - not after the Portuguese's latest attempts to keep morale high within the squad.
However, it seems the former Chelsea boss' latest requests at United are something Red Devils fans would have come to have expected from the disciplinarian that was their former boss, Louis van Gaal.
Mourinho has already axed eight players from his first-team squad, including former Bayern Munich midfielder Bastian Schweinsteiger, as well as Adnan Januzaj, Andreas Pereira, James Wilson, Will Keane, Joe Riley, Tyler Blackett and Cameron Borthwick-Jackson.

Meanwhile, Paddy McNair and Donald Love may have been glad to have completed their £5.5 million switch to Sunderland, along with loanee Januzaj, when they did, following Mourinho's bizarre idea that will, literally, divide the dressing room.
As reported by the Daily Mail, United's new man in charge has had a partition built in the club's changing room at their Carrington training ground in order to develop a stronger bond between his 'chosen ones' and the club's cast offs.
Doors and windows have been installed at the training ground, meaning the likes of the former Germany international Schweinsteiger can only look on in at what could have been, for them, at United.
Mourinho to stop distractions
It is understood that the open-plan setting of the Red Devils' dressing room wasn't to Mourinho's liking, and the division now created means neither outcasts or younger players can walk through first-team areas of the dressing room in order to reach the gym or other areas of the complex.
The 53-year-old is hoping that, by doing this, it will stop dissatisfaction and distractions creeping into the first-team dressing room.
Rejects train with youngsters
Schweinsteiger has been ordered to train with the under-21s, alongside Andreas Pereira, until they find themselves new clubs, although the transfer window's closure is edging closer, with just over two weeks until the deadline passes, making it difficult for either to find a new club.
Pereira is hopeful of a loan move away from Old Trafford, while Schweinsteiger's £160,000-a-week wages are a major stumbling block in his attempts to leave Mourinho's side.
And the Mail is also reporting that morale is, understandably, low between the United rejects, who had, until Mourinho's arrival, all played a significant role for Van Gaal, during his time at the club.
