Joining United was an easy Decision - Matic

The midfield enforcer was deemed surplus to requirement by Antonio Conte at Chelsea, despite playing a pivotal role in last season's title-winning campaign.

Nemanja Matic attempted 1,826 passes in the Premier League last season.

"I trained alone in London and it was odd for me but I tried to give my best to control the game well and to give balance", Matic told MUTV.

"Since Jose has come to the club, the seven players they've signed a lot of them are tall, physical players - players you need for the Premier League".

The signing of workhorse Nemanja Matic should allow Manchester United to make better use of gifted France midfielder Paul Pogba in the coming years, the club's former forward Brian McClair said.

Having signed defender Victor Lindelof and £75m striker Romelu Lukaku during the transfer window, Mourinho revealed that he still wanted two more additions, one of which was "a midfield player, [who] would give me more options to the balance and the team".

"I saw him also when we were champions, and he was in West Brom, (which was) may be my best time in Manchester", Rafael, who now plies his trade for French outfit Lyon, said.

Denny Hamlin leads all active drivers with four wins here with Jimmie Johnson(3) and Kurt Busch(3) right in his rearview mirror. She was in tears over the final laps and celebrated in victory lane a win that her husband dedicated to his late grandmother.

"I know Phil Neville has worked with him and he says he is certainly good enough".

He has already set his sights on replicating the success he had at Stamford Bridge. I would because I think it's quite unfair but when you do that you have the risk of more punishment. A player can be professional and work hard but football is collective and when you train alone you train just as a part of what you are as a player.

Italian champions Juventus were also understood to be keen on Matic.

Mourinho underlined how important he believes Matic is for his vision.

United finalised a reported £75million deal for Lukaku on July 10 and the 24-year-old has enjoyed an encouraging pre-season, scoring against Real Salt Lake, Manchester City and Valerenga.

"Yes it was nice", he said of his first 45 minutes with the club, in a post-match interview with MUTV. Today, Nemanja Matic has completed his move to Man Utd... The 29-year-old made the move to Old Trafford after falling out of favour at the London club.
