Jose Mourinho reveals why he won't select Diogo Dalot for Wolves

Manchester United's Portuguese defender Diogo Dalot controls the ball during the UEFA Champions League group H football match between Young Boys and Manchester United at The Stade

Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho.

Mourinho declared that Dalot, 19, was the best young full-back in Europe after signing him from Porto for £19 million (US$25 million) in June.

Sanchez was an unused substitute in the midweek win over Young Boys in the Champions League with Anthony Martial making the most of a rare starting opportunity, scoring the third goal in a comfortable 3-0 win.

That form has lifted United ahead of Saturday's clash against Wolves, yet growing optimism is underpinned by the manager's sustained belief - first uttered in pre-season as transfer frustration grew - that this will be a tough campaign.

The manager explained that Dalot needs time to adjust to life at United in order to realise his potential. "All the players were all really proud of him". He is a player to be here to compete for positions (in the team). "He's a very good player".

People questioned whether there were leaders or characters in that United team but they have come through a spell with a few wins, in hard places, and it looks like they have turned it around, three away wins in places where they could easily have slipped up.

An unimpressive 2-1 home win against Leicester on the opening weekend was followed by a terrible 3-2 defeat at Brighton and a 3-0 thrashing at home to Spurs but Manchester United may well have turned the corner after three away wins in-a-row.


They have conceded just once since Chris Smalling and Victor Lindelof were paired together at centre-back after the team shipped seven in their opening three games of the season.

At a press conference, Mourinho told reporters: "When they are players, you always have players you have a little bit of a feeling they can become managers, but I don't think even then think about it, that team at Porto".

"I think this is more the influence of the moment".

"The team is more compact, more solid; the spirit, the cooperation, the empathy, the communication - all of that improves in the team and good results bring confidence".

The closeness of Mendes' involvement at Molineux prompted the English Football League to investigate the set-up last season, although it was found to comply with the body's rules.

That's what you get with United, the expectations are so high as everyone is waiting for something to happen, people know if they say something they will get a reaction from Mourinho. He's my agent and that's it. I think with my style of game I am good for this league and I think I adapt good.
