Jose Mourinho assesses his three summer signings ahead of the new season


Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho says he is so far delighted with his first three summer signings.

The Red Devils added Eric Bailly, Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Henrikh Mkhitaryan to their squad this summer with midfielder Paul Pogba expected to join them next week.

And the Portuguese was full of praise for his new players as they continue their preparation ahead of the FA Community Shield game against Leicester City.

"With Zlatan you may see someone with a big ego, big self-esteem, but it is in a positive way," Mourinho told MUTV.

"When he is with the group, he is humble and friendly to everyone – integration is good.

"Zlatan is a fantastic player and, immediately in training, we could feel what I call ‘functional empathy’ - people looking to him, him looking to connect with other players. He is an amazing link player, an amazing player. He could be anything on the pitch, not just a goalscorer.

"Zlatan and Henrikh are fluent in English and in many other languages. They are good guys and experienced guys.

"Eric doesn’t speak English too well. But he speaks French and Spanish which makes it an easy position in this squad with all his team-mates who speak those languages. He is coming up, step by step."
