⚽ Man Utd boss Mourinho: This kid De Roon is phenomenal ⚽



Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho was impressed by Middlesbrough midfielder Marten de Roon during Sunday’s win.


In his post-match press conference, Mourinho lavished praise on the Boro number 14.


He said: “Boro have a good team, a solid midfield.


“This kid De Roon is phenomenal, his work-rate is phenomenal, they’re solid and they play direct.


“We had to fight it, and I have to admit, it was hard for us.”


The Middlesbrough midfielder has been one of his side’s better players since his club record £12million move from Atalanta last summer.
