Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho has confessed that he had no other option but to change the way his team plays in order to make a comeback from their poor start to the 2018-19 domestic season.
The Red Devils have now won back-to-back games against Burnley and Watford after consecutive defeats to Brighton and Tottenham. The Portuguese tactician is now hoping that his team can register three wins in a row when they face Young Boys in the Champions League on Wednesday.
Speaking about Manchester United's recent weeks, Mourinho told ESPN, "I think we are improving. We found a certain balance in the team, especially in the competitive attitude, we are creating lots of chances, changing our profile of play, the way we attack opponents, and we find a way to protect ourselves in some specific situations."
Highlighting his team's comeback after two consecutive defeats, the former Chelsea boss stated, "We managed to get six points after two defeats which is important for us. We managed that in two difficult matches away and let's see in our third match if we can win all of them."
United head into a pretty busy schedule starting with their Champions League game against Young Boys and Mourinho hinted at some changes in his team in Wednesday's encounter.
In what also sounded like a mock at the media, the 55-year-old coach concluded, "I just want to remind you, in advance, that we can only start with eleven [players] so when you see the team you could try to speak about the ones that are going to play and not the ones that are not going to play. Try to be a little bit happy with the ones that are playing and not to be greedy with the ones that are not playing."
After their Champions League group game against Young Boys, Manchester United will return to Premier League action this weekend. Mourinho's men will take on Wolverhampton Wanderers who have made a pretty decent start to their campaign.
