Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho says he is not carried away by his team’s 3-0 spanking of Young Boys in a Champions League Group H opener in Bern on Wednesday.

Midfielder Paul Pogba got a brace and set up a goal as the Red Devils saw off Young Boys.

“Job done. Not phenomenal but good enough. They were intense, compact and had self-esteem. Then after the first goal, the game was under control. We tried to score the goals that gave us the stability for the second half,” said Mourinho in his post-match presser.

“It is important for us to win because probably every team is going to get six points against Young Boys. Now we have two important matches against Valencia and Juventus. They are very good opponents.”

And on the artificial pitch, the United manager said, “There was probably some fears of injuries. I had some players who were feeling sore after training yesterday. People are more used to playing on great surfaces in England. The football is much more beautiful that way.

“Now the game is over, I can say I don’t understand how you can play the best club football on an artificial pitch.”
