Jose Mourinho on Zlatan Ibrahimovic's debut and his first goal for Manchester United


Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho says striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic showed what he will bring to the squad this season with his performance against Galatasaray.

The 34-year-old scored straight away for the Red Devils as they went on to register an easy 5-2 win against the Turkish side.

He was replaced at half-time as the Portuguese was full of praise for all other players who were involved in the game.

"I think everyone gave everything to improve," Mourinho told reporters.

"And even with the guys who came on at 4-2, I told them to forget the result, don't play like we are winning 4-2. 'You need this 30 minutes to play high tempo, high intensity, forget the 4-2.'

"That's what they all tried to do. Of course Marcus did well. Of course Ibra did show glimpses of the things he can bring us.

"But when I see guys like Fellaini, Martial, Schneiderlin, they trained two days and they can be here. I told them, 'Don't try to go with the intensity of the game, go with an intensity that makes you comfortable.'

"I prefer this way, I prefer that they are on the pitch so I am happy. I am happy with the opposition, they played already six or seven matches so they were in a higher tempo than us. I am happy with it all. And I am happy that out of such a big group we have just Timothy [Fosu-Mensah] and Chris Smalling with little injuries and apart from them, no injuries and everything looks like it's going well."
