#8220;It depends on what is happening or what was happening behind doors and we don#8217;t know,#8221; Mourinho said. #8220;The only thing I know is that, of course, with Chelsea money, but I brought him to Stamford Bridge because I thought he was a player with special qualities and since I left I always thought he could be a perfect player for us.
#8220;So we have him and we are very happy with that because he#8217;s a player that our team needs and now we have these kind of qualities in Nemanja and Michael Carrick and Michael, in spite of his age, he has a role to play and I am happy with these players I have that we call stability players.#8221;
Chelsea succumbed to a shock 3-2 defeat without Matic in their Premier League opener and Mourinho admits Matic#8217;s determination to join United was a #8216;special#8217; incident.
Matic made his Premier League debut for United against West Ham on Sunday and was named man of the match after a masterful display alongside Paul Pogba in the 4-0 victory.
United set their record win under Mourinho but the Portuguese was more content with merely claiming three points.
#8220;But I didn#8217;t disturb him, I didn#8217;t disturb or Chelsea, I never thought it was possible unless something special was happening and it looks like something was happening because his agent told me you can have him, you just have to pay.
