Jose Mourinho’s Manchester United rebuild continued on Thursday as the Red Devils confirmed the signings of six members of his new backroom team.
The most notable addition was probably former Chelsea assistant manager Rui Faria, who also worked as Mourinho’s no.2 at Inter Milan and Real Madrid.
United’s official club website also named Silvino Louro, Ricardo Formosinho, Carlos Lalin and Emilio Alvarez as the new members to the Red Devils coaching staff, while Giovanni Cerra has arrived as an analyst.
Mourinho has already made three Man United signings in terms of his playing staff.
Former Villarreal centre-back Eric Bailly was the first addition, followed by Swedish free transfer Zlatan Ibrahimovic and then Armenia star Henrikh Mkhitaryan from Borussia Dortmund.
Mourinho’s new team will begin the 2016-17 season with a trip to Bournemouth on August 14.
That game was moved from Saturday August 13 for live TV coverage earlier today.
United’s second game will also be live on TV, with Sky Sports showing their home match against Middlesbrough on Friday August 19.
