Jose Mourinho seems to be revelling in his new role as Manchester United manager.

The Portuguese was announced as Louis van Gaal's replacement on May 27 and on Wednesday named defender Eric Bailly as his first signing.

He then posted a photograph of his desk on his official Instagram account, with the caption "now is the time to enjoy - produce pre-season training sessions".

On the photo was a red folder with 'Tour 2016' on it - Mourinho's dossier for the forthcoming tour of China - while there also appeared to be a pencil case with Mourinho's face on, along with the club crest.

Also laid out are a number of notepads and spreadsheets - presumably detailing the schedules Mourinho is building for his new players as he looks to return them to Premier League title contention.
