Manchester United have reportedly signed a deal with the Portuguese manager this evening
Manchester United have secured the signature of Jose Mourinho after months of speculation, according to reports this afternoon.
While the decision has been met with some scepticism, many feel he is the manager that will bring back the good times to United.
In his post Ferdinand says: "The first thing he needs to do is install 'winning mentality' back into the club. Get this ingredient back into the players but also the people that work inside the club day to day. Give them back that belief so it is breathing throughout the club again, which is so important. But doing the above in the Manchester United way is equally as important."
