Watch: The Full MUTV Interview With Jose Mourinho

Jose Mourinho gave his first press conference as Man Utd manager today - getting in an obligatory dig at Arsene Wenger's barren years in terms of Premier League glory.

He also gave an exclusive interview to MUTV which was broadcast this evening.

Mourinho spoke about new signings Eric Bailly and Zlatan Ibrahimovic.

Regarding Ibrahimovic, it was as if he was talking about an old flame - the two worked together at Inter Milan and now renew their relationship.

The Portuguese also used come convoluted math to explain why Ibrahimovic and Marcus Rashford will compliment each other so well.

34 is his age, plus 18 Marcus Rashford. 34 plus 18 divided by two is the perfect age for a football player. Our two strikers are exactly in the perfect age. 18 is not the perfect age, 34 is not. They can be an amazing compliment to each other.

After a dour season of football under Louis van Gaal, fans are hoping Mourinho will bring a more exciting brand of game back to Old Trafford. Mourinho says his style is different to Van Gaal - 'more vertical and intense'.

When the MUTV interviewer noted that a Mourinho managed team has managed to score more than 100 goals in the past - Real Madrid in 2011/12, the 53-year-old was quick to correct him with the actual number - 121.
