New Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho will be working with fresh faces at Old Trafford as soon as the new season commences.
Following the departure of Welsh veteran Ryan Giggs from the club he served for almost three decades last week, former Real Madrid and Chelsea boss Mourinho who is a serial winner has brought in his own trusted six-man management team.
Mourinho, who was officially unveiled on Tuesday, will be working with Rui Faria as his No 2, as well as coaches
Silvino Louro [Portuguese, 57], Ricardo Formosinho [Portuguese 59], Carlos Lalin and Emilio Alvarez and analyst [Italian].
Faria and Mourinho go back together as far as 2001 when, as manager of União Leiria, Mourinho hired Faria as his fitness and assistant coach. They have worked together ever since taking in stints at Porto, Chelsea, Inter, Real Madrid and now United.
Louro, 57, will work with Mourinho on tactical work and creating detailed video analysis as well as working with goalkeepers David de Gea and Sergio Romero given his experience as a former player.
Ricardo Formosinho will work as a scout given the fact that he has coached in countries such as Angola, Vietnam and Malaysia gives him the ample experience to thrive in that niche.
