Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho has left the pitch during the reserves’ match against Stoke City as Diogo Dalot was not fully involved in the game.
The Portuguese manager was in attendance but after Dalot was substituted for the reserve team on Friday, Mourinho decided to walk away from the match.
Dalot joined the Old Trafford side from Porto during the Summer transfer window and Mourinho signed him believing that the Portuguese could be one of the best right-backs in the world.
Mourinho said at the time: “Diogo is an extremely talented young defender with all the qualities to quickly become a great player for this club.”
“He has all the attributes that a full-back needs: physicality, tactical intelligence and technical quality, combined with a Porto Academy mentality which prepares players for the maturity they need at the professional level.”
“In his age group, he is the best full-back in Europe and we all believe he has a bright future ahead of him at Manchester United.”
After signing his contract with Red Devils, Dalot has also claimed that he is very happy to work with Mourinho.
“Joining Manchester United is an unbelievable opportunity for me,” Dalot said.
“I have grown up in Porto’s Academy and I am so thankful for everything they have done for me.”
“But the chance of coming to the biggest club in the world is something I just couldn’t turn down.”
“I’m excited about working with Jose Mourinho and learning everything I can from such a successful coach.”
“I am looking forward to playing alongside the fantastic players in the squad.”
