Bournemouth boss Eddie Howe has also confirmed that the club have agreed a fee to sign Stoke's Republic of Ireland defender Marc Wilson, 28.
Bournemouth boss Eddie Howe to BBC Sport: "I thought it was an even game until the first goal, that was the key moment in the game. We dominated the early stages but you can't gift Manchester United goals, which we did.
"You can't lambaste individuals for that - it's the game. The second half was more difficult and they got their goals in quick succession.
"But credit to the lads - they got back into the game and had a strong end. We didn't pen them in enough and put them under pressure.
"Lewis Cook has exceptional talent. He fitted in very well, he has a good mentality. He'll only get better. I thought Jordon Ibe did well in flashes. He showed what he will bring to us with dribble and counter attacking. He's an exciting talent. There's more to come from him."
Manchester United captain Wayne Rooney to BBC Sport: "I thought we won it with a bit of style in the second half. One down, 37 to go."
To Sky Sports:"We have made a real statement bringing in four great signings and the new manager. There is a lot of excitement from ourselves and the fans.
"I've not had to prove anything to anyone. I've been playing a long time. I believe I'm good enough to play."Copyright: Reuters
Jose Mourinho: "Paul Pogba is very good, he's a phenomenal player. Our idea is that he will be a very important player for us.
"In August it can be frustrating for players not in the team, because it's one game a week. But in September we have the League Cup, the Europa League starts and there's international games. It's a real marathon and then there’s space for everyone. That’s why we have such a good squad.
"I met a sad squad in my first day, a squad not happy with their situation. But I found immediately a team who want to work and win matches and titles, as well as making fans proud."
More from Jose Mourinho to BBC Sport: "It’s incredible how Zlatan Ibrahimovic has never won the Golden Ball. He wants to win the Premier League, not the Golden Ball."
On comparisons with Wayne Rooney: "Different times, different ages. Eric Cantona was here at the best moment in his career. This guy [Zlatan] is more than a player. For the next two seasons I think he can be phenomenal for the team and the Premier League."
Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho told BBC Sport: "I am very happy. Bournemouth always start with great intensity but we kept our control. We weren’t surprised and then we started playing.
"In the second half we had a bit more confidence.
"But you make a mistake in the Premier League and you get punished [when Bournemouth scored]. Instead of going for a bigger result you have to try to control. We went for that and were always in control. I’m happy with the team."Copyright: Reuters
Manchester United striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic on Sky Sports: "The team did good. It was a difficult game. In the first half we weren't 100% but we had more space in the second half and could play our game.
"It's important to start good. It [being new to the league] is not easy. Everything is new for me, my team-mates, the clubs, the environment. i just play my game.
"I try to do my job and help my team. The first objective is to win, it's also good if I score. But it's the same importance whoever scores."

All smiles amongst the Manchester United contingent.
Jose Mourinho disappeared down the tunnel - his unbeaten opening day record intact.
His coaching staff remained to celebrate with the players.
The whole job is not done yet though. Substitutes Marcus Rashford, Morgan Schneiderlin, Henrikh Mkhitaryan and Michael Carrick are doing a post-match training session.

So was this worth the wait, Manchester United fans?Copyright: Reuters
David de Gea saves again from Max Gradel, seconds after he could have conceded a penalty. Where was this 10 minutes ago, Bournemouth?!
Andrew Surman forces a late, great save from David de Gea.
Manchester United fans chant "Jose Mourinho". Which makes sense seeing he is actually their manager now. They were chanting his name last season when Louis van Gaal was in charge.Copyright: Getty Images
