Reviving fortunesUnited have a new spring of life under Mourinho

Mourinho, who took charge of the red side of Manchester in 2016, signed a 3-year deal on his arrival. The contract keeps him at the helm of affairs at the club till June 2019.

In his debut season, United finished 6th in the Premier League but qualified for the Champions League after winning the Europa League and the League Cup.

Can't be replacedManagers have failed to replicate Sir Alex Ferguson's success

Manchester United, which is one the biggest football clubs across the globe, have seen their fortunes dwindle since the departure of Sir Alex Ferguson.

David Moyes was appointed his successor, but he was miserable at the club. Louis van Gaal was brought in to replace Moyes and he too failed to revive the club to its glory.

Fingers crossed United are hoping for the best

Currently, Manchester United sit 12 points behind Manchester City in the Premier League and are also alive in the Champions League and the FA Cup.

If United remain on second position, at the end of the season it would be their highest finish since the 20th title triumph in May 2013 during Sir Alex Ferguson's last season as the manager.
