Matic, not Dier, the midfielder Mourinho 'really wanted' for Man United

"I probably have the player I didn't think it was possible to have, but we got the player I really wanted".

Matić has made an excellent start to the campaign for The Red Devils, however it has been suggested that the 29-year-old might not have been the first-choice option for Mourinho.

The Tottenham boss has claimed Mourinho waited for Dier in the tunnel following a 1-0 defeat at Old Trafford in December.

Mourinho told his pre-match news conference ahead of Manchester United's win over Tottenham on Saturday: "I'm anxious about Fellaini and not about Luke Shaw because Fellaini finishes his contract and Luke Shaw doesn't".

The England worldwide freely admits he wants to link up once more with Pochettino eventually, with the full-back even saying "I think he really wants me to play under him again".

"I have the player that I want to have", Mourinho said.

Bailly hasn't featured since the beginning of the global break after picking up an injury with the Ivory Coast while Jones is continuing his recovery from injury.

Jose Mourinho said after the game on Tuesday he is not hopeful that either Paul Pogba or Marouane Fellaini will be ready to return.

"So, for me, the flawless words that show Luke Shaw's character in relation to the people he was happy with".
