Rumours this summer have suggested that Memphis is not part of Mourinho’s plans and the coach left him out of his squad for the community shield win over Leicester City last weekend.

However, quoted by the Sunday People, Mourinho has backed Memphis to have a better season and confirmed his intention to keep the 22-year-old.

He said, “Of course, I want Memphis to be part of my squad

“I don’t want to go into last season too much, but I know the player I’ve watched at PSV and the World Cup two years ago when he was a very young kid.

“Having that player in mind, I want to keep him. And I believe in him, yes.Especially as I see a good boy, a good kid, a good professional.

“I don’t care what people think.

“You can see him driving a nice car and you think this guy is not thinking about football, but that is not the case.

“He is frustrated with what happened last season, where he lost all confidence. But he will be back.”
