Man United press conference

Manchester United captain Michael Carrick believes the £40m signing of Nemanja Matic from Chelsea will prove a shrewd acquistion by the Red Devils.

"He's a terrific player, a great signing for us, who knows what it takes to win," Carrick said of his fellow midfielder ahead of the Uefa Super Cup final with Real Madrid.

"He had a massive part to play at Chelsea and what’s important is he knows the league, the English way, how tough it is, how the season is, so he’ll adapt quickly at United and I hope he’ll have a big part to play for years to come."

Man United press conference

Manchester United midfielder Juan Mata says Real Madrid are the side that every opponent respects and fears.

"They are the ones everyone wants to beat; they have a great team, they won league in Spain," Mata said.

"We know how good they are but United has great history and record of titles. We won three trophies last season. One day, sooner rather than later, we want to be where they were last season – in a Champions League final and hopefully winning it."

Mourinho would 'fight' to sign Bale

Some interesting quotes from Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho on Real Madrid forward Gareth Bale, who has long been linked with a move to Old Trafford.

Mourinho said: "Well if Bale is playing tomorrow, no I wouldn't think of that, it would be because he's in the coach's plans and the club's plans because he also has that motivation to continue at Real Madrid. So I haven't even thought about the possibility.

"If he is not in the club's plans, that with the arrival of another player would mean he was on his way out. I will try to be waiting for him on the other side and fight with other coaches that would want him on their team. But if he plays tomorrow that is the best confirmation that he is still wanted by the team."

Bale has travelled with Real's squad to Skopje for the Uefa Super Cup final against United tomorrow but has struggled with an ankle injury in pre-season.

Man United press conference

Jose Mourinho urged his squad to "play and enjoy this special moment" of taking part in the Super Cup final.

He said: "It’s not many times a player can play in the Super Cup unless you are Real or Barcelona, winning European trophies regularly.

"We are going to try (to win) but the difference between the Champions League winners and Europa League winners is obvious. The Europa League is very difficult to win; there is a difference of quality but we believe it’s possible."

Man United press conference

Mourinho says attempts to acclimatise his players to the heat of Skope in Macedonia proved a little difficult back in England.

Parts of Europe are experiencing their most extreme heat in more than a decade as temperatures hit 44C (111F).

He continued: "I knew the weather was like this. Since returning from the United States, I decided to train in Manchester every day at 4pm to give the feeling of heat, but it was raining every day! Even for Real it has to be hard, though they are more adapted."

Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho, gave a brief team news update at the start of his press conference ahead of the Uefa Super Cup with Real Madrid in Skopje, Macedonia.

Mourinho said: "No Phil Jones, no Eric Bailly (both suspended) and no Tim Fosu-Mensah because he is probably going on loan to another club.

"The injuries are the long-term ones you all know – Luke Shaw, Ashley Young, Marcos Rojo. Apart from that, everyone is available. Obviously Matic is available but not like the others."

Brighton manager Chris Hughton, complete with sizeable goatee beard that reminds me of someone I cannot currently place - suggestions welcome at #bbcsportsday - relishes the arrival of midfielder Davy Propper. It is the second time this summer that the Seagulls have broken their transfer record, following the signing of goalkeeper Mathew Ryan from Valencia.

"There is no doubting his pedigree: Davy has played a number of matches in the Champions League for PSV, as well as international football for the Netherlands," Hughton enthuses.

"He's a strong competitor as a central midfielder and will complement our existing midfield players, and he is also a really good age at 25; we are absolutely delighted to welcome him to the club."

Coach Sampson cleared of bullying charge

England Women's coach Mark Sampson has been cleared of wrongdoing after Eniola Aluko made a complaint to the Football Association about "bullying and harassment".

Striker Aluko, 30, quit the team in May 2016 after making the claims.

The Chelsea player said she also felt "undermined and belittled" by England staff and claims their negative bias contributed to her not being picked.

But the FA said an independent report found no evidence of wrongdoing by Sampson or his staff.

Benitez endures transfer struggles

The Daily Express claim Newcastle manager Rafael Benitez is struggling in the transfer market because he cannot sell players surplus to requirements.

Defenders Grant Hanley and Achraf Lazaar along with midfielder Henri Saivet and forward Emmanuel Riviere are among those Newcastle have struggled to move on according to the paper.

Apparently the wages earned by a number of players, including the above, have made it difficult for them to leave St James' Park and hampered Benitez's attempts to bring in new faces.
