‘United are back to being hated, it’s a good sign!’ – Twitter reacts to Mourinho appointment

On Friday morning, the worst kept secret in football was finally revealed to be true – Jose Mourinho was appointed as Louis van Gaal’s successor and the third manager of Manchester United since Sir Alex Ferguson’s retirement.

It’s safe to say the news of Mourinho’s inevitable appointment was greeted with open arms by the United faithful, as they hope he will be the man to reinstate consistent success at Old Trafford.

The tone of the past three years under David Moyes and Louis van Gaal respectively have been foreign to the modern United fan, but with Mourinho’s track record, it is likely that his reign will be just like old times in terms of success.

We took to Twitter to find the best reactions after Mourinho was announced:

Whether Mourinho can wipe his Chelsea woes from his memory is yet to be seen, but the United faithful are certainly happy about his arrival at Old Trafford.
