Mourinho happy with way new Man Utd trio have settled

Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho is pleased with the way his three signings have settled.

Mourinho was asked about his new signings – Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Eric Bailly and Henrikh Mkhitaryan – ahead of the game against Galatasaray.

“With Zlatan you may see someone with a big ego, big self-esteem, but it is in a positive way,” said Mourinho to MUTV. “When he is with the group, he is humble and friendly to everyone – integration is good.

“Zlatan is a fantastic player and, immediately in training, we could feel what I call ‘functional empathy’ – people looking to him, him looking to connect with other players. He is an amazing link player, an amazing player. He could be anything on the pitch, not just a goalscorer.

“Zlatan and Henrikh are fluent in English and in many other languages. They are good guys and experienced guys.

“Eric doesn’t speak English too well. But he speaks French and Spanish which makes it an easy position in this squad with all his team-mates who speak those languages. He is coming up, step by step.”
