New Manchester United manager, has made his mark at the club’s training ground, just one week into his reign.

The Portuguese has been nicknamed ‘Mr Meticulous’, as he begins to implement his methods at the Aon Training Complex.

One of the things Mourinho has done, is to remove the training-pitch cameras installed on the order of former boss, Louis van Gaal. The cameras were used for analysis by the Dutchman and his coaching team, but hated by the players.

Mourinho has also told the players, that he would not be holding evaluation meetings a day after games like Van Gaal.

The Portuguese’s style is usually to form a bond with players, rather than use a teacher/student mode.

“The players have been bowled over by the manager already ­ inside just a few days – the training ground feels alive again and there is a spring in everyone’s step,” a training ground source told Sunday People.

“Michael Carrick is one of the senior players but he was saying he wished he was 25 again and facing a few years playing for Mourinho.

“The place is absolutely buzzing.

“The previous manager was very thorough in his planning and preparation and on the ­training ground but it all felt a little bit regimented.

“Some of the staff have already nicknamed Jose ‘Mr Meticulous’ because of his ­attention to detail – but the mood feels a lot lighter, albeit super-professional.
