With regards to the match, Isco said he felt Madrid were the superior team but admitted that Man United made them suffer at times as they pressed for a second-half equaliser.

Jose Mourinho extended his winless run against Real Madrid to five matches, but the Manchester United manager felt Los Blancos' first goal would have been disallowed if the Video Assistant Referee was in place.

Former Man United striker Dwight Yorke has backed Romelu Lukaku to be a big hit at Old Trafford this season, but has hinted that Mourinho's team is not good enough to win the Champions League. But in general, we played a very complete game and we're deserving winners.

United did not finish lower than third in the Premier League era under Sir Alex Ferguson, but since his retirement have ended seventh, fourth, fifth and sixth. Not a great start though.

"Obviously I think by bringing Mourinho in, it's kind of boosted the club, by winning a few trophies past year, it did them great, and I think they're getting back to where they belong".

"Normally the second season should be better than the first because you know the club, you know the players".

United were outclassed at times in sweltering Skopje to give Jose Mourinho food for thought at the start of his second season in the hot seat. I have seen him work on the field and in the gym. "But I am happy for him that he scored a goal after that and I'm sure that he will continue to score goals and that he will score many this season". "I'm not listening to anything". "I am enjoying my football here, I am playing as much as I can and I'm winning trophies so that's all I am concentrating on".

"If I was a Premier League manager and had to choose between Lukaku, [Alvaro] Morata and [Alexandre] Lacazette, I would choose Lukaku, always".

Mourinho did not keep his runners-up medal, choosing instead to give it to a young United fan in the crowd. "It was a very hard game but we got the job done and we've got another trophy and we move on".
