Crespo believes Mourinho can land the Premier League title

The former Chelsea striker worked under José Mourinho at Stamford Bridge and San Siro.

Hernán Crespo insists that the top-management skills of the Portuguese tactician will allow him to lead Manchester United to glory and bring back the Premier League trophy to Manchester.

Mourinho will enter his second season ahead of the Red Devils as during his first one he managed to win three trophies even though none of them truly represent the quality of Manchester United as they are not considered ‘major’ trophies by many.

The Red Devils recently lost the UEFA Super Cup final against Zidane’s Real Madrid. However, Crespo is positive his former manager can achieve a lot with the English giants.

“I think Manchester United will win the Premier League because Mourinho has never failed in a second season.” Crespo told Mirror.

“José is one of the best in the world. He’s made history everywhere with Porto, Inter and now he can do it with Manchester United.

“It’s difficult to explain, but when you play with Mourinho, you feel like the best striker in the world. There are two different people with Mourinho.

“The one in front of the camera and another Mourinho in the dressing room. I prefer the Mourinho in the dressing room, he’s friendlier.

“I really like his method of training, his motivation and his passion.”
