Jose Mourinho believes Nemanja Matic is flawless for Manchester United

Since Alex Ferguson retired after the 2013 title win United have not finished in the top three but some serious investment in new players gives manager Jose Mourinho, starting his second season at the club, the sense that things are coming together.

The 29-year-old Serbian was far from the most glamorous member of Chelsea's championship teams of 2015 and 2017, but he gave more talented players the freedom to cause havoc by doing the dirty work in midfield.

For Jose Mourinho's men attentions now turn to the start of the Premier League and West Ham, who travel to Old Trafford on Sunday for the Reds' opening match of the season.

But Mourinho says a massive signing for United was Nemanja Matic from champions Chelsea for £40m.

"When I got the call that Matic wants to play for me and wants to play for Manchester United this season and we can make it happen, I thought it's the ideal player for me".

"Not just for his qualities but also for my relationship with him". "I'm on fire", he exclaimed before vowing: "But I will behave on the touchline!"

His first season at United was a year of building - and now he is ready to get to the top again.

Mourinho likes his teams to be streetwise and physically imposing.

The Portuguese added: "I want to play West Ham a hard match, then go to Swansea for another hard match".

'Matic is one of those players where there are no question marks with him. He doesn't need time to adapt to England.

"He's a player of 29 and has five years in the Premier League".

He's one of those players who gives me consistency which is what I like. But Matic is Matic.

Mets dealing veteran Neil Walker to the Brewers
Neil Walker's tenure with the Mets was near a conclusion as the Mets finished batting practice Saturday at Citizens Bank Park. The Milwaukee Brewers have pulled off a deal to acquire second baseman Neil Walker in a trade with the New York Mets .

"Matic is Matic and that's something that I really like in a player".

He said: "To buy lots of good players is important".

"We tried everything to equalise and then to win the game", he said. That is normal, but that is not enough.

"This doesn't seem quite the same, but at the same time we don't know whether Matic wanted to leave".

"I think Tottenham, without any spending, are equipped to win because they have a fantastic team, fantastic manager, great stability".

"Petr had done such a lot for the club, Thibaut Courtois had come in and it would have been harsh to stop him moving to Arsenal when he was so settled in London, but this is different". Liverpool is equipped. Chelsea were the champions easily, they lost some players but bought some players. Yes, I thought that.

Mourinho's confidence is largely because he feels United are a club that now carries his influence.

"I was thinking I needed three transfer windows, but two transfer windows and a good group", he explained.

'We are much better organised at every level. The medical department is better and we are much stronger as a team in the analysis department.

'I was not sitting around having tea, ' he says. "But they are very experienced and they also had some chances to score another because at the end we tried to go with everything to score and they had some counter-attacks".

West Ham have also been active in the transfer market after flirting with the relegation zone last season and could feature Mexico global and ex-United striker Javier Hernandez in attack on Sunday. I am on fire'. I want the Champions League to start.
