Manchester United are proving to be a force to be reckoned with under Jose Mourinho of late, and Sir Alex Ferguson is clearly impressed with what he’s seeing.
The Red Devils claimed their second trophy of the season on Sunday, with Zlatan Ibrahimovic’s two goals helping them add the EFL Cup to their Community Shield title at the beginning of the campaign.
Mourinho’s men remain in the hunt for a top-four finish in the Premier League, while they are through to the last 16 of the Europa League and still in the FA Cup, where they face Chelsea in the quarter-finals.
Images of Sir Alex in the stands looking anything but pleased became common during United’s struggles under Louis van Gaal, with the Dutchman sacked at the end of the 2015-16 season.
But he’s clearly enjoying the football being played by United now and was particularly impressed with Ibrahimovic’s first goal at Wembley.
The legendary Scot jumped to his feet and applauded at Wembley as the veteran striker crashed home a free-kick that flew past Fraser Forster in the Southampton goal.
United now turn their attention back to league matters, where they will be looking to keep up the pressure in the race to finish in the top four as they host struggling Bournemouth at Old Trafford on Saturday.
