The Portuguese success in such a short space of time at Old Trafford has gone unnoticed because of his eventful past. His arrival at the club came with a lot of talk about his personality more than the difficult job he was going to face to bring back the glory days, especially after David Moyes and Louis van Gaal nightmares.
After his disastrous last season with Chelsea the manager cemented his status as being one of the controversial managers in football. His appointment at Manchester United came with a lot of suggestions that he was going to carry his ego with him to Old Trafford and not much about his ability to bring success at any club. All those suggestions came after he lost Chelsea dressing room, all that triggered talks about his ego and his success over the years was quickly forgotten.
All that has resulted in his success at Manchester United so far suffering because of his past. The attention is so much on his personality and his ability to have transformed a team that was considered dead has been ignored. He has done something that non of the previous United managers were able to do, that is winning a major trophy on their first season. The fans are much happier than the past two seasons and the football is appetizing.
Unfortunately for him, his past is haunting him. However, the good news for United fans is that the pundits keep focusing on his past and he keeps sailing the club to the right direction.
