It's been questioned where the former Tottenham midfielder will fit in Mourinho's plans.
â€śHe is in a normal physical condition for someone who hasnâ€™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 wonâ€™t need a lot of time to get himself into shape. I think heâ€™ll be ready shortly,â€ť said Mourinho.
In relation to the position he will take on the field, he joked: â€śWherever he feels uncomfortable."
Mou continued: â€śWhen 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 wonâ€™t be playing as a number 9 or a left-back."
