MATIC IS A ‘GE­NIUS’

Serb im­presses Mour­inho in his de­but for Manch­ester United

New Straits Times - - Sport -

LONDON for­merly played un­der Mour­inho at Chelsea and his man­ager said on Wed­nes­day night that the mid­fielder will quickly get up to speed due to his nat­u­ral foot­ball in­tel­li­gence.

Mour­inho said: “When you train alone you train just a part of what you are as a player so he needs time but ex­pe­ri­ence, in­tel­li­gent, a ge­nius (in) the way he thinks, he thinks foot­ball, we will help him to be ready sooner rather than later and that's why he coped with the 45 min­utes well.”

Mour­inho also in­sisted he wants one more player to com­plete his sum­mer shop­ping fol­low­ing the sign­ings of Matic, Victor Lin­de­lof and Romelu Lukaku.

The United boss added: “The squad is good and as I told a few months ago I was hop­ing for four play­ers to im­prove the squad and the club did a fan­tas­tic job by get­ting three of them which is dif­fi­cult in the crazy mar­ket where we are now, to get three out of four I thank the club for that.

“I would be hap­pier if they give me four of four but they did a great job.” Daily Mail
