Though the superstar Swede marked his debut with a stunning finish, United fans from around the world on Twitter are not best pleased by Mourinho’s first outing as manager.

Man united fans the only people in the world that thinks pep style of football is boring while mourinho's kick and follow is entertaining.

Boring Boring Man United
