Club legend discusses the big change at Manchester United since Jose Mourinho took over
Whisper it but Manchester United are starting to look like themselves again.
A nine-game win streak has restored that recently unfamiliar sense of optimism around Old Trafford and fans are actually starting to believe again.
Marouane Fellaini's sprint in the direction of Jose Mourinho to celebrate his goal against Hull in the EFL Cup midweek gave supporters the most recent piece of evidence that suggests that faith in the club's manager has returned, which is something that one couldn't say in recent seasons under Louis van Gaal and David Moyes.
Smiles are also more visible in the terraces as United and winning ways reacquaint themselves with one another and Red Devils legend Dwight Yorke has explained how those positive vibes are fully on show at the club's training ground.
"They seem to have that mojo back," Yorke told talkSPORT, as transcribed by Manchester Evening News.
"I went in to the club yesterday and the change and contrast in that club from six months ago is enormous.
"You speak to people behind the scenes and they are so much happier, there is so much confidence. The change is like, 'Wow, is this the same place as six months ago?'
"The players are enjoying training, they are looking forward to it the next day.
"These players are really focused and sensing something really special is about to happen at Manchester United."
