MANCHESTER United manager Jose Mourinho on Tuesday said he likes everything which new signing Romelu Lukaku does, adding that the winner he scored against Real Salt City in his football club’s 2-1 win did not matter much. “Ithinkit’s just nice for him but not important for me. When he came (over to the touchline) for the water, before he scored the goal,I toldhim,‘Iloveeverything you do on the pitch’,” Mourinho told Manchester United ’sofficial website.

“Don’t be worried about scoring or not scoring becauseit’snot important”. He holds the ball so well, he plays one touch, two touches so well. He sees, he moves,he gets behind people, he attacks crosses,he works with the team and when we lose the ball he presses well. “I like everything he does. For me, it’s easy to feel it, because he was my player four years ago or something like that,his evolution was great. He’s now a top striker and the goal is just a detail, not important,” the Portuguese said. Mourinho fielded two teams, changing all eleven players at halftime. Besides Lukaku’s winner, Henrikh Mkhitaryan scored the first one for the Red Devils.
