Man Utd boss Mourinho hails 'my boys': Lingard, Young - and Modric

Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho is delighted with the World Cup form of England pair Jesse Lingard and Ashley Young.

Mourinho believes both players can handle their World Cup semifinal against Croatia.

He said, “Looking to my boys, I think Lingard is one that enjoys the occasion, I think he's going to be the happy kid he is every day and that he shows every match. Ashley Young is very reliable, I think he will not be affected by the occasion."

But he also said of Real Madrid's Croatia midfielder Luka Modric.

"Modric is one of my boys. When I bought him to Real Madrid the Spanish press was saying that we bought the worst player in Real Madrid's history, he is not at all the worst player in Real Madrid's history."
