"He is in a normal physical condition for someone who hasn't trained with his team in a while or even played a lot. He has got minutes under his belt for his national team but nothing else. I think that, given his profile, he won't need a lot of time to get himself into shape. I think he'll be ready shortly," said Mourinho.
In relation to the position he will take on the field, he joked: "Wherever he feels uncomfortable."
Mou continued: "When we sign a player we know where he feels comfortable, and why we wanted to sign him and why we have taken such a long time. He was our number one target. We know what his game is all about and what his favourite position is. He will play in a position that he calls his own. He certainly won't be playing as a number 9 or a left-back."
