Jose Mourinho's first words after Manchester United sign Paul Pogba from Juventus


Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho says new signing Paul Pogba has everything to become one of the most successful players at the club.

The Frenchman became the fourth and last summer signing for the Red Devils as he signed from Juventus for a world-record fee of £89million.

He joins Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Eric Bailly and Henrikh Mkhitaryan as United make another statement of intent ahead of this season's Premier League campaign.

"I like everything [about him]," Mourinho told MUTV.

"I know the discussion, I understand that, sometimes in football, things happen and the club breaks the record, but this is only possible at clubs like Man United.

"When I heard some of the comments and heard some of the managers criticising that, I don't think they ever have this problem because, to have this problem, you need to be at one of the top clubs in the world. So at Man United it can happen.

"But he's a very young player, an unbelievable midfield player with such physicality but, at the same time, such agility, co-ordination, skill.

"He has everything. What he has to learn now is how to play with us because I always say that in football you can be a super player, like he is, but a team is a team and you need to learn how to play in the team, and the team needs to learn how to play with you.

"We need to get the best out of him and this will be a process. So if he needs protection, I am here to protect.

"I know some people think that he arrives here now and, the first time he touches the ball, he scores, but I'm here to protect him and give him the best conditions to be what we think he is going to be, which is a football player for Man United, a reference for this club. I'm so happy."
