'Sometimes he does some extreme things. Against Chelsea, he changed our tactical formation just before the game.

Speaking about what positions he can play in, the 21 year old said "I played out wide in the beginning then, after that, I played more as a no.10 and, then in the last two or three months, I've played as a central midfielder,".

"Please don't call me arrogant, but I'm European champion and I think I'm a special one", he said, per ESPN FC.

He had worked together with Ernesto Valverde at Atletico Madrid and it seemed like a summer reunion was back on track following the manager's appointment at Camp Nou, but Mourinho has ruled out all chances of Herrera leaving.

Pogba returned to Old Trafford after four seasons at Juventus in an £89.3 million deal that made him the most expensive footballer in the world.

Smalling returned from his latest setback to feature in six of United's last seven matches, only sitting out the dead rubber against Crystal Palace days before helping the team to Europa League glory.

Having won the Europa League, Manchester United will make a return to the Champions League and the world's biggest footballing stage next season, but can Mourinho assemble a squad fit for such a potentially rewarding campaign?

However, the Reds will be looking to improve upon a sixth-placed league finish next season as they look to rival the likes of Chelsea, Tottenham Hotspur and Manchester City for the Premier League title.

He added: "I have been really happy at United since the first day".

Mourinho was outspoken in decrying a "culture" whereby he felt some United players were reluctant to play through the pain barrier when carrying injuries.

"I had to adapt to the English football but the more I trained the better it got".

"It's true that the results weren't as positive as we had wished, but we reached our goals".
