Jose Mourinho comments after Manchester United officially announce Paul Pogba's return


Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho says he is delighted after the club announced the signing of Paul Pogba.

After a lot of speculation, the Red Devils officially announced this afternoon that the Frenchman was given permission by Juventus to have a medical at the AON Training Complex in Carrington.

He is the club's fourth summer signing and joins Eric Bailly, Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Henrikh Mkhitaryan.

"He [Paul Pogba] is a fantastic player," Mourinho told reporters.

"If everything goes well he's a very important player but we have a great squad.

"We left today 7 players out of the group, and they are very good players that work so hard to be [very good], so we have the options, we have the players, we have the squad.

"I think we are getting the mentality and the most difficult thing is the principles of play that we are changing step by step but I saw today, especially the team as a defensive unit, very compact, an outstanding zonal game, not following man to man all over the place, not opening gaps, I think the team was very compact by the defensive point of view.

"On Tuesday I will be there waiting for [Pogba].

"We have a new defender in Bailly, a new midfielder in Pogba pending the medical, a new attacking midfielder in Mkhitaryan and a new striker in Ibra. I think the market was good for us, but we need to work a lot, a lot, a lot. I am happy we have for the next six weeks only one match a week because we can work a lot."
