"I thought he was a player with special qualities and, since I left, I always thought he could be a ideal player for us", said Jose Mourinho. He gave midfielders the licence to go forward and the licence for Micki [Henrikh Mkhitaryan] to go forward, which was really good for us offensive players to have those type of players playing close to you. They didn't sell, like some were expecting, the top players - (Mesut) Ozil, Alexis (Sanchez).
And Mourinho believes Matic's consistency will prove to be vital for United as they aim to launch a Premier League title challenge. 'I was thinking I needed three transfer windows, but after two I have a good group and the club as a football club is much better equipped. "They were very compact but after the first goal we had more space".
On our first video show of the season, Nipun made an excellent point; Matic does nearly everything, almost as well as all of our other midfielders, but perhaps one point remained which is crucial - he is an upgrade on Michael Carrick now, without question, and on his league debut he looked like Carrick at his best. If Lindelof is to be eased in gently, then there should be no knee-jerk reactionary questioning of the manager's ability to handle his players like there was in the early weeks of last season.

'At the end of the season we will see the results, but I look forward to it with optimism and enthusiasm. I think Tottenham without any spending is equipped to win the title because they have fantastic team, fantastic manager, great stability and have been together for a long time. I want the Champions League to start. Liverpool are equipped. Chelsea are the champions, lost some players but bought some players. I just think the competition can be better than ever'.
Sky Sports correspondent Kaveh Solkehol has claimed on his personal Twitter account that the west London club were keen to hold on to the Serbian central midfielder. One off payment, just £6.99.
