Man Utd transfer news Where Paul Pogba wants to play revealed by French journalist

Seeing his side pick up an important 2-1 opening day win against an impressive Leicester City side, Mourinho was quick to praise everyone from Paul Pogba to Luke Shaw; congratulating them on giving what they could to the cause, for as long as they could.

Jose is the type of manager who gives someone the captaincy for the right reasons and I think he chose to give Pogba some responsibility for managing the game and the players around him, which was a very clever move.

'I find myself in the beginning of the Premier League with the market closed in the situation I thought I was not going to be in, ' said Mourinho.

Mourinho admitted he may have to get used to not getting his own way in the modern world having suggested last weekend United would face a hard season if they did not bolster their squad. I haven't won the Premier League, I haven't won the Champions League, I haven't won the Euros so there are more to win. "We have to wait until the end of November to understand if we can fight for the title".

He added: "We play against a team that invest more than us".

The midfielder, who named captain for the night as United's Premier League campaign got off to a winning start, netted a penalty after just three minutes. Every team is a good team, forget the name, forget the history, forget the shirt.

The path to the three points began with a Paul Pogba penalty kick just two minutes in after a hand ball, and the World Cup victor with France made no mistake, finishing calmly into the far post.

Leicester have spent the past few weeks battling United, who tried to sign center-back Harry Maguire after the World Cup.

The Portuguese's side beat Leicester City 2-1 in Friday night's Premier League opener at Old Trafford thanks to a Paul Pogba penalty and a late Luke Shaw strike. Pogba responded with a strong all-round performance, as well as scoring the opening goal after what I have to say was a very unusual run-up for his penalty.

Fittingly, Paul Pogba's first ever goal in the EPL came against Leicester during the 2016 Season. But the players gave everything, they gave what they had. Maybe in the next game I can give to Alexis.

"Even if I forget the goal, it was a complete performance", said Mourinho of the left-back's display. Again, I know the words you want me to say or not to say. I am someone who likes challenges and wants to progress and you have to leave it behind now.
