Jose Mourinho: Why kicking off the season with a win was important


Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho was delighted after his side's 2-0 win against Wigan Athletic on Saturday.

The Portuguese confessed that his players produced a number of things tried in training sessions as he was full of praise for the fans who attended the game.

"I am very happy," Mourinho told MUTV after the game.

"The result is obviously not the most important thing, but it is always important. I’m happy because there were things we tried in training around some principles of our play defensively and offensively and I could see them.

"They were not perfect of course because the conditions are not the best with only 10 days of training, accumulation of fatigue and no sharpness, so it takes time.

"But I could see things that showed the players were starting to think in the way I think about football. That pleased me. Everybody played the match and everyone had a positive performance.

"Best of all was something that I never had before - a friendly match which I could call a training session against opposition and yet there were so many supporters who gave permanent support to the team.

"There was the manifestation of happiness [from them] about a few things they could see in the team which was absolutely fantastic.

"As I said in my [arrival] press conference, I will try to give them everything and I’m sure they will continue to give amazing support to the team."
