Jose Mourinho on Romelu Lukaku's first goal for the club and Victor Lindelof's freedom to attack

By

Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho was delighted with the performance of Romelu Lukaku against Real Salt Lake.

The Belgium international scored and was lively with the Portuguese extremely happy with the striker's movement on the pitch.

"I think it’s just nice for him but not important for me," Mourinho said on Lukaku.

"When he came [over to the touchline] for the water, before he scored the goal, I told him, 'I love everything you do on the pitch. Don’t be worried about scoring or not scoring because it's not important.'

"He holds the ball so well, he plays one touch, two touches so well. He sees, he moves, he gets behind people, he attacks crosses, he works with the team and when we lose the ball he presses well.

"I like everything he does. For me, it's easy to feel it, because he was my player four years ago or something like that, his evolution was great. He’s now a top striker and the goal is just a detail, not important.

"[Victor Lindelof?] It's the difference between playing with three in the back or four in the back.

"When you play with three, you project with the wingers and you need the central defenders to drive and to come with the ball. When you play with four in the back, if you project with the right-back and the left-back, you only have two defenders and they have to share [the workload] and keep their position more.

"His quality of passing is always very good, he's technically very good but obviously with three in the back, he has more freedom to attack spaces in midfield."
