Jose Mourinho’s arrival at Manchester United will put the 20-time English champions back where they belong. I think United needed a coach like him– a winning coach with personality.

Spaniard De Gea moved to United from Atletico Madrid in 2011 and won the Premier League in the 2012-13 campaign.

The Portuguese coach replaced Louis van Gaal last month after United finished fifth in the Premier League.

Successor David Moyes lasted just 10 months before he was sacked while Van Gaal enjoyed more success in his two seasons, qualifying once for the Champions League and winning the FA Cup last month against Crystal Palace.

Yet there was general discontent at Old Trafford with their style of play and failure to mount a title challenge.

I arrived at United to win titles, it’s true that in the past two years we haven’t been at the level that this club deserves, but we hope that with the coaching change, we can return United to the top.
De Gea

Mourinho won three Premier League titles in two spells at Chelsea and also won league titles at Porto, Inter Milan and Real Madrid as well as the Champions League.

I have three years left at Manchester, a club that has given me everything, This is a very big club, and I’m grateful for the affection I receive everyday. I’m very grateful to United, I’m very happy here.
De Gea
