Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho rounded off his maiden season as Red Devils boss in typical fashion last night, lifting the Europa League after a final win over Ajax in Stockholm.
Goals from summer signings Paul Pogba and Henrikh Mkhitaryan, giving United a 2-0 win, will have been particularly satisfying for the former Real Madrid boss, who will be back in the Champions League next season thanks to the Europa League victory.
Talk, almost immediately, after the win turned to the prospects for next season and what Mourinho’s plans for the summer will be.
The Special One was typically upfront in his response to questioning on BT Sport over the issue, making it abundantly clear that he was now on holiday and revealed that the task now lays with vice chief-executive Ed Woodward, after he handed the official a list of his transfer targets two months ago.
“Ed Woodward has had what I wanted for the last two months,” he told BT Sport’s Des Kelly.
“Now I will just wait.”
The wait then, for fans and manager alike, is on to see who will be arriving at Old Trafford before the start of next season, when a push for more silverware – both at home and on the continent – will be the priority for Mourinho once again.
