Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho will return from holiday a week early in order to stamp his mark on the club and hold talks with Sir Alex Ferguson.
The Portuguese tactician has been on holiday in the Maldives, but will cut short his stay in order to get to Carrington and press ahead with his plans for his first season in charge at United.
According to The Sun, he’ll be back a week ahead of schedule, and the first port of call is to sit down with Ferguson and plot the best way to get the Premier League giants back to the top of English football.
However, that won’t be the only thing on his agenda, as it’s also claimed that he will take down the cameras around the training ground that were installed by Louis van Gaal so he could analyse what was happening during training sessions.
Further changes are expected at the club’s HQ, as Mourinho ultimately looks to stamp his mark on the club and start what United fans will hope is a successful new era at Old Trafford.
The 53-year-old has already been busy since being appointed last month, as he has completed the signing of defender Eric Bailly from Villarreal.
Further signings are expected in the next week or so as he continues to strengthen his squad ahead of the new campaign, and it is certainly an exciting time for the Red Devils as they look to put the disappointment of recent years behind them.
Mourinho has shown his desire and motivation by returning to Manchester early, and it now remains to be seen whether or not he can get all his plans in place ahead of his first season in charge as it will certainly be important to make a strong start.
