It is probably typical of José Mourinho, arguably the most prolific trophy-getter in the business, that his riposte to Roy Keane’s observation that Manchester United’s first season under new management had been an “embarrassment” should involve confirming a place in another of the game’s showpiece events. Yes, it is not the European final a club with United’s ambitions crave but it still feels like a return to better days and, post-Ferguson, that made this one of the happier occasions since Mourinho took over.
