José Mourinho explains choice to make Paul Pogba captain vs. Leicester

José Mourinho explains choice to make Paul Pogba captain vs. Leicester

"We should start the Premier League with a win and we did today".

Mourinho, who has continously complained about the lack of new signings at Old Trafford, said Pogba "is happy, proud and ready to work" at Manchester United. "We thought he would manage maximum 60 minutes and he went much longer", Mourinho said. But I told the players we had good periods, lots of glimpses of the type of football we wanted to play.

"I had only two options, Scott [McTominay] or Paul, but if I play Scott I play two two kids and a new player, so I asked Paul and he put himself available for the team and he was very, very good for us".

A World Cup victor with France at Russian Federation 2018, Pogba has been linked to LaLiga champions Barcelona and former club Juventus following a hard season under United manager Jose Mourinho last term.

Leicester showed that even without Riyad Mahrez, who has joined Manchester City, it remains a team with plenty of creativity.

'I won't be full with a World Cup.




"That's football, that's football management, I think football is changing and probably football managers should be called head coaches".

It was very exciting to watch for the first 20 or 25 minutes but, when they took their foot off the gas, Leicester came right back into the game. Maybe in the next game I can give to Alexis. "I think it's the last time we speak about it, it's over, finished, the market is closed and no more talk about it". 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.

"I want to play Martial but I can't, Paul Pogba can't play 90, Fred the same".

It was the first senior goal for former England and Southampton defender Shaw, on the 23-year-old left-back's 141st appearance.

"You have to keep it in mind, but you have to keep working to get better and better because I am still quite young".

Veteran English goalkeeper Lee Grant sealed a move to Manchester United in a £1.5m deal from Stoke City to provide cover for David De Gea and Sergio Romero.
