Wing star claims he ‘impressed’ Mourinho as his side lost to Man United

Galatasaray winger Bruma has revealed that Jose Mourinho told him he was “impressed” with his performance when the Turkish side slipped to a 5-2 pre-season friendly loss at the hands of Manchester United.

The 21-year-old wide man has often been talked about as one of the top emerging players in his position in Europe, but his career has stagnated since a 2013 move to Gala from Sporting CP.

Bruma is back in Istanbul after a season on loan at Real Soceidad and featured for his side in their loss to Man United.

The youngster scored against the Red Devils with a fine effort from the edge of the box, and speaking to O Jogo he revealed that after the game Mourinho heaped praise on him:

“Mourinho told me he was impressed with my performance and that if I continue I will get back into the Portugal national team.

“Of course it was amazing to hear this from Mourinho and he said he will keep an eye on how I do this season.”

Bruma has been capped at every level by Portugal from U-15 to U-21, but has yet to be called up to the European Champions’ at senior level.
