So the beautiful game is back once more as a feast of football awaits us over the next nine or ten months. With as many twists and turns as a roller coaster at Alton Towers, no one could have predicted the previous season. You can forget your Tolstoy and your Tales of The Unexpected as Leicester City outfoxed all other clubs to lift the Premier League.
Under the helm of Italian maestro Claudio Ranieri, their counter attacking style of play was too much for some teams. This was coupled with Jamie Vardy’s goal scoring record leading to Leicester romping to their first Premier League crown.
But as current Man United boss Jose Mourinho has declared on numerous occasions everyone wants to “be champions”. And no more so than the current number one at Old Trafford. With his feet firmly under the footballing table at OT, Mourinho has started with gusto.
A Community Shield victory over Leicester has followed up a fantastic start to the new campaign. Mourinho has so far overseen wins over Bournemouth where United lost last year and his first official home game versus Southampton.
Not only is Mourinho stealing the headlines but so is his star striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic. The super Swede has made a stunning start to his career with three goals in just two starts. But what is also making a spectacular appearance are Mourinho’s penchant for glasses.
The former Chelsea and Inter boss has been spotted out and about recently in Manchester City centre in a fetching pair of eyewear. It seems that he is a fan of square framed specs. Looks like someone is firmly focused on keeping his eye on the ball!
