Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho has suggested Nemanja Matic is not ready to play the full 90 minutes against Real Madrid in the UEFA Super Cup.

Speaking at his pre-match press conference in Skopje, the boss feels his latest signing may not be physically ready for the first competitive fixture of the season, despite an impressive opening 45 minutes in the red shirt during the friendly win over Sampdoria in Dublin.

Phil Jones and Eric Bailly are out due to suspension, while another defender, Tim Fosu-Mensah, is not involved as he finalises a loan move away from Old Trafford.

“With Phil Jones, I was expecting the appeal [against the ban] to be negative,” said Mourinho. “No Phil Jones, no Eric Bailly and no Tim Fosu-Mensah because, in this moment, Tim is probably going on loan to another club. So we made the decision not to travel with him.

“The injuries are the long-term [ones] that you all know about – Luke Shaw, Ashley Young and Marcos Rojo. Apart from that, everybody is available. Obviously, Matic is available but not available like the others.”
