Diogo Dalot made his debut for the Red Devils in the 3-0 win over Young Boys on Wednesday evening and received a lot plaudits.

Despite his impressive debut, Mourinho has revealed he will not feature against Wolverhampton Wanderers on Saturday.

“I want him, in this process of adaptation, to play totally fresh, so he's not playing tomorrow. He plays Tuesday again," Mourinho was quoted as saying by the Mirror.

“Playing for Manchester United is difficult enough for a kid of 19-years-old, coming from another country and after an important injury and surgery.

“He doesn't need to face more difficulties. It was a difficult pitch, he recovered totally and on Tuesday he will play again.

“But he showed for the ones that don't know him very, very well that he is not a player to be here just on formation, is a player to be here [to fight for] positions - he's a very good player.”
