The 2016 / 2017 season has yet to officially commence but already the ‘Special One` has won his first piece of silverware whilst in charge of Manchester United.

The Community Shield may not carry the same status as the Premier League, FA Cup or even League Cup, but placing some silverware in the trophy cabinet is a minor weight off of Mourinho`s shoulders.

With Paul Pogba set to become a Manchester United player this week, Mourinho has orchestrated a series of summer moves that should stand Manchester United in good stead with regards to the race for the Premier League title.

Following the Community Shield win, Mourinho was the first of the managers to arrive for the post-match press conference and the mischievous ‘Special One` couldn`t help having a sly dig at the man he succeeded in the Old Trafford managerial hot-seat, Louis van Gaal, remarking,

‘First of all I want to dedicate this trophy to Louis van Gaal because without him I wouldn’t have had the chance to win another trophy.”

I`m not sure if the comment was really called for but I guess that`s how Jose Mourinho operates and if he keeps bringing silverware to the club, I`ll guess it`ll be par for the cause as Jose continues to jest with the press.
