Mourinho Has Returned The Fear Factor Back To Old Trafford – Ferguson’s Assistant

According to Sir Alex Ferguson’s former assistant, Mike Phelan, Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho is bringing the fear factor back to the Red Devils,

United have enjoyed an unbeaten start to the Premier League and currently sit in second spot, level on points with leaders Manchester City.

Phelan, who spent 14 years at Old Trafford, had nothing but praise for the job Mourinho is doing this season.

“I think they are getting that (fear) back slowly because now at Old Trafford there is an atmosphere, there is an expectation and the players are reacting really well to it,” Phelan told Premier League Daily.

“You have to build that reputation that fear and I think it was lost a little bit in the time Sir Alex had left.

“In the off-season, he’s gone about his business really, really well. I think he’s come back fresh and he’s added to the squad and I think they are looking at a squad now that can really go the distance.”
