Jose Mourinho speaks out about Victor Lindelof's role at Manchester United

Jose Mourinho speaks out about Victor Lindelof's role at Manchester United

Mourinho won the title in his second season in both spells at Chelsea, as well as during his time at Real Madrid and Inter Milan.

The 35-year-old free agent, who scored 28 goals for the club last season, is battling back to fitness after suffering a cruciate knee ligament injury in April, though, and Mourinho insisted there is no rush to get a deal done.

Before Leicester City were crowned league champions in 2015/16, the idea of a small team challenging for the title, let alone winning, was not something even remotely possible in this day and age where bigger clubs with deep pockets tend to rule the roost.

"What would it mean for me to be the Premier League champion?" The one in front of the camera and another Mourinho in the dressing room. "If the remaining 25 percent don't arrive I will not moan, just go with everything I have to try to win every match we play". "He's one of the best managers in the world and it's motivating for me as a player that a manager like him can say that".

"In my initial analysis from January and through the months I was thinking of four players but I'm not a hard person to work with in spite of if you make it look different", said Mourinho, ahead of United's Premier League opener against West Ham, live on Sky Sports Premier League on Sunday.

"We are in a position to do quality work better than we did in the first season, so I am convinced that our second season, in terms of the quality of our team, is going to be better".

Yet he said: "It's the same pressure as I had last season". "The season that happened wasn't just about what happened in our box". I don't know, we're going to ask the doctor because, of course, he was injured for a long time.

Mourinho told a news conference on Friday: "We have 25 percent left which means one of four - we got a central defender that can play many other positions which is very important".

"It takes time, I know that from experience of going to United at a young age".

Those reasons for excitement include the arrival of striker Romelu Lukaku for £75 million (S$132 million) from Everton, Chelsea's Serbia midfielder Nemanja Matic (£40 million) and Sweden defender Victor Lindelof from Benfica (£30 million).

Matic adds aggression and discipline to United's midfield and he will fit right into Mourinho's preferred three-man midfield and should be a regular figure in the starting XI alongside Ander Herrera and Pogba.

While Mourinho has welcomed the new signings, he argues that of greater significance is the fact his team will not have their domestic fixture list disrupted by the Europa League this season. I trust that the player is going to perform, so I think he is a fantastic signing'. The top seven, we are all in Europe.

"There are two different people with Mourinho". Arsenal the same, they didn't sell the top players like Ozil, Alexis, that some expected.
