Here is what Mourinho said after the match

Kicking off with a win
“I am very happy. The result is obviously not the most important thing, but it is always important. I’m happy because there were things we tried in training around some principles of our play defensively and offensively and I could see them. They were not perfect of course because the conditions are not the best with only 10 days of training, accumulation of fatigue and no sharpness, so it takes time. But I could see things that showed the players were starting to think in the way I think about football. That pleased me. Everybody played the match and everyone had a positive performance.”

Fantastic fans
“Best of all was something that I never had before – a friendly match which I could call a training session against opposition and yet there were so many supporters who gave permanent support to the team. There was the manifestation of happiness [from them] about a few things they could see in the team which was absolutely fantastic. As I said in my [arrival] press conference, I will try to give them everything and I’m sure they will continue to give amazing support to the team.”

Thumbs up for new boys
” Mkhitaryan is a top-class player and currently at the best stage for a footballer – 27 years old. He is magnificent in the way he thinks about football, he thinks very quickly and it’s so sweet how he touches the ball. He can play in different positions behind the striker. He doesn’t have the sharpness yet.”
