Mourinho hails Lukaku & Matic despite open goal miss, defensive blunders

Sergio Ramos and Gareth Bale

Sergio Ramos has said that he will "never tire of winning" trophies after helping Real Madrid to a dominant 2-1 win over Manchester United in the UEFA Super Cup.

The Belgium worldwide, signed from Everton for a reported initial fee of £75million last month, netted in the second half of his competitive debut in United's 2-1 UEFA Super Cup loss on Tuesday.

Despite providing the first shot on goal that was saved by Keylor Navas and eventually scored by Lukaku, Matic has been added to the squad in order to make sure Paul Pogba has more time to go forward without worrying about defensive duties, and that the back four have a layer of protection around them.

The Belgium worldwide was rumoured to be on the brink of a return to Premier League champions Chelsea earlier this summer.

"But you know in our good moment he was really good, especially in our period of dominance in the second half after the 2-0". "It's very important for confidence".

Furthermore, the 14-time major champion says the two haven't dated since a year ago . Unclear if Woods has rebounded with anyone else.

'We played against a very good side.

The United boss said: "I'm more than happy [with Pogba], I'm really happy".

Jose Mourinho's side were largely second-best in Tuesday's encounter in Skopje, with Casemiro and Isco having given Madrid a deserved two-goal lead before Lukaku offered some late hope of a comeback. It's like, because he was so expensive, he should be Man of the Match every game.

Matic was frustrated with the result but has called on United to turn their full focus to Sunday's league opener against West Ham. "We had an opportunity to equalise, Marcus had a good chance and didn't score, unluckily for us, but this is football".

And with that in mind, here is a potential XI featuring the pair for the clash with West Ham United this weekend.
