Paul Pogba Named Manchester United Captain - Starting XI V Leicester Confirmed

Share

They might not have set the world alight, but Manchester United's 2-1 win over Leicester on Friday night was still a significant result and performance.

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 think we are more the head coach than the manager", he said.

However, United saw out the rest of second-half stoppage time to start the season with three points and maintain Mourinho's unbeaten record in Premier League openers with nine wins and one draw over 10 matches.

He got that from his team's display at Old Trafford, from the way they started so well to how they saw the game out at the end.

"We showed good control, good football, a lot of chances", he said.

"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".

"He worked amazingly well Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and he's one of the players that I have to speak to see how physically and mentally he feels".

The players appeared to briefly state their cases about who should take the shot, but Pogba - named captain for the day by Jose Mourinho - won out and converted his attempt to give United an early lead.

Claude Puel, the visiting manager, said: "It was a shame to concede this goal at the beginning of the game".

The Daily Telegraph adds that United's board would only sanction the signing of a world-class defender such as Varane, but refused to bring in a "lesser" player, despite Mourinho's demands.
