Jose Mourinho: I won't moan if Man United don't sign another player

Jose Mourinho: I won't moan if Man United don't sign another player

Mourinho added: "We got a central defender that can play in many other positions, which is important".

Midfield: Nemanja Matic is set to make his league debut for United following his move from Chelsea after impressing against Madrid in midweek and the Serbian should start alongside Ander Herrera in the middle of the park. I want the Champions League to start.

But Mourinho says a massive signing for United was Nemanja Matic from champions Chelsea for £40m. I will just go with everything.

He said: "When I joined Man United previous year, I thought we needed a kind of Matic".

"Not just for his qualities but also for my relationship with him".

Mourinho likes his teams to be streetwise and physically imposing.

"Matic is Matic and that's something that I really like in a player".

Manchester United kick off the new Premier League season when they entertain West Ham at Old Trafford on Sunday afternoon.

Since Ferguson's departure, United have finished seventh, fourth, fifth and sixth in the Premier League. He's a player who gives me what I like, which is consistency. But Matic is Matic.

"I trust he is going to perform, so I think he is a fantastic signing". After a first season of transition, Mourinho must stamp his authority on this team and is under a lot of pressure to deliver the coveted Premier League title.

Both they and Manchester City have been accused of recklessly buying their way to success because of the vast sums involved but Mourinho doesn't think it provides any guarantees in itself and says Tottenham, who have not spent anything in this window, are also challengers. We are going to try to win the title. That is normal, but that is not enough.

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

"I don't think I'm in a position of crying, moaning, protesting".

"But he's still a very good player to sit in front of the back four, do the simple things, pass the ball - he's good at what he does".

"Arsenal and Everton are in the Europa League and they have to play Thursdays". But even Mourinho knew deep down that his first season at the Manchester club was far from what he would have wanted.

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

"What I had in other clubs was more players scoring goals".

'We are much better organised at every level. The medical department is better and we are much stronger as a team in the analysis department.

"So we will go for it this season". I want to play West Ham - a hard match - then go to Swansea for another hard match.

The Hammers finished 11th in the Premier League a year ago, as they settled into their first campaign at the London Stadium, recovering well after a very shaky start at the new ground.
