Jose Mourinho delighted after win against Galatasaray - he's also happy with mistakes


Jose Mourinho was clearly delighted after his side eased past Galatasaray by 5-2 on Saturday afternoon.

The Red Devils produced a very positive performance with Zlatan Ibrahimovic wasting no time at all to score his first goal for the club with a well-executed scissor kick.

And the Portuguese was "very happy" at the end of the game as he is already looking forward to his side's next game against Everton.

"The most important thing was to play, to give minutes to the players," Mourinho said after the game.

"To the ones that played less, they played 30 minutes. To the ones that played the most, they had 60, 65 minutes. They need to play. We lost a week in China and some of the boys who played today, they trained for two days.

"We made that decision to give them 30 or 45 minutes of the game, feeling that it would be better for them than even a double training session. So that's the most important thing.

"There is not a long time to work, not a long time to change, to implement a couple of new ideas, of new principles of play. Everything at this time is step by step and the reality is that you don't have this time.

"We have a game against Leicester next weekend and we have the Premier League in a couple of weeks. We need time, we don't have time. The only solution is to train hard and to train against opposition like today is the most important thing we can do.

"So I am happy with the intensity of the game, I am happy with the mistakes we made and I am really happy with the mistakes we made because we work on the mistakes.

"I am really happy with the good things we did too.

"I am happy with the spirit, I am happy with the atmosphere but we have to work. So tomorrow is one day off but on Monday we will have a double training session and on Wednesday, we are at Old Trafford for Rooney and for our fans.

"I will do the same as today, I will train 22 players. I don't care for the result too much, I want to give minutes to everyone and that's good, step by step."
