Jose Mourinho on Henrikh Mkhitaryan and Eric Bailly's game against Wigan Athletic


Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho was full of praise for Henrikh Mkhitaryan and Eric Bailly after his side's 2-0 win against Wigan Athletic.

The Armenia international played a very solid first half before being replaced by Juan Mata.

The Ivorian played 82 minutes and according to the Portuguese he showed the same potential the club saw before signing him from Villarreal.

"[Henrikh] Mkhitaryan is a top-class player and currently at the best stage for a footballer - 27 years old," Mourinho told MUTV.

"He is magnificent in the way he thinks about football, he thinks very quickly and it’s so sweet how he touches the ball. He can play in different positions behind the striker.

"He doesn’t have the sharpness yet but his performance was very positive.

"With Eric [Bailly], the way the fans showed how much they liked his performance when I substituted him is enough. Of course he is a very young boy coming from a very different environment, but you could see what he is at this moment.

"I will give him everything to try to make him better and better, like I did with other central defenders I’ve had in my hands. He has showed the potential we saw when we decided to buy him."
