Mourinho hails Man United new signing Matic

And in the league opener today against West Ham, Chelsea may be wishing they had kept the midfield enforcer.

Following Matic's Man of the Match performance, the Manchester Evening News report Mourinho said: "It depends on what is happening or what was happening behind doors and we don't know".

"I thought he was a player with special qualities and, since I left, I always thought he could be a flawless player for us", said Jose Mourinho.

'I thought about Matic but I never like to go to players where I think it's an impossible mission (to sign them).

Then I heard that he wanted to join United and could make it happen. It's not just for his qualities but my relation with him and the way I know him'.

Four things to take away from Manchester United's opening day win over West Ham United.

Mourinho likes his teams to be streetwise and physically imposing.

He said: "On Friday, I was in front of the TV and I enjoyed it a lot".

"He's just turned 29 and he has five years' Premier League experience".

The CIA chief described Kim as "rational" and responsive to "adverse circumstances". He added, "That's exactly the policy of the Trump administration".

He's one of those players who gives me consistency which is what I like.

"Matic plays normally here [gestures to a height with hand], and sometimes a little bit here [adjusts hand slightly] and sometimes a little bit there [lowers hand slightly] but Matic is Matic". But Matic is Matic. That is normal, but that is not enough.

'I think every one of us in his own way is equipped to do it.

The Blues were claimed to have sold Matic due to having bought Tiemoue Bakayoko from Monaco, but Bakayoko is now sidelined through injury and played no part against the Clarets. Liverpool is equipped. Chelsea were the champions easily, they lost some players but bought some players. "I think the competition can be better than ever".

Mourinho's confidence is largely because he feels United are a club that now carries his influence.

The Serbian became the Portuguese's third - and final? - signing of the transfer window earlier this month, arriving for a fee of £40m from Chelsea.

"We are much better organised in the areas that support the first-team squad. We have to continue to work like this".

"Nemanja is top player with a top stability and we need that". 'My dedication to my job is always the maximum, even more than when I started. So we will go for it this season.

"And that's something I really like in players - consistency". I am on fire'. I want the Champions League to start.
