Jose Mourinho: I’ve never had a group of players that I liked so much

Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho says that his current United side is the best group of players he has ever worked with in his managerial career.

Following their 2-1 defeat to Real Madrid in UEFA Super Cup, United will kick-off their league season with a home game against West Ham on Sunday.

Mourinho said: “Yes, we deserve the rest tomorrow and on Thursday we will start, we go for it with everything. I’m so happy to be the manager of these guys, I told them a few days ago that during my long career I never had a group that I liked so much, like I like them.

“I’m really happy to be with them and I’m going to fight with them all the way, so let’s go on Sunday. Old Trafford is waiting for us and I think Old Trafford has a reason to be behind us.”
