Paul Pogba posts cryptic message to Instagram after Manchester United win

  • Manchester United 2-1 Leicester City | FI

Mourinho was particularly annoyed to miss out on a series of centre-back targets, including Leicester's Harry Maguire who shone for England in Russian Federation.

"Football is changing. Probably football managers should be called more head coaches". "I had my plans for many months and I find myself with the market closed in a situation I did not think I would be in".

Mourinho then said it will be a "difficult" season, and suggested that he perhaps needs a new title, rather than a manager.

"In the Premier League, we must get used to playing teams with the same quality we have", Mourinho told Sky Sports.

Manchester United have endured a tetchy couple of days prior to the opening game of the season, after failing to secure the defensive signings that Jose Mourinho had desperately hoped for on deadline day.

Paul Pogba's first-half penalty and a Luke Shaw strike were enough to secure a 2-1 victory for the Reds, despite a consolation from Jamie Vardy.

Sources have told ESPN FC that Barcelona and Juventus are both interested in signing the midfielder after Mourinho claimed the £89 million man had played well for France during the World Cup because he was fully focused on his football.

"Pogba was a monster, we thought maximum 60 minutes but he managed the 80".

Mookie monster! Betts homers in 9th to complete cycle
Betts, who finished 4 for 4 with two runs, an RBI, and a walk, singled to left to start the game and came around to score. Red Sox: LHP Eduardo Rodriguez (right ankle sprain) threw effectively in a simulated game, with positive results.


"Even if I forget the goal, it was a complete performance", said Mourinho of the left-back's display.

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.

'The manager puts names out, after that it is how we feel, ' he said.

'Of course, we have second or third choice in case he is not confident or for some reason doesn't want to take it.

"We don't have a penalty taker, it's how we feel and I made a decision to take it". I wouldn't say it was the best game, but obviously it's normal. It's not a problem, it's the win that is most important'.

The interior designers recruited into The Theatre of Dreams have obviously been more productive than chairman Ed Woodward this season in giving United a makeover, and the results are sure to make the rest of the Premier League green with envy, radiating class and sophistication.

With 271 appearances and a Premier League winners' medal under his belt with Leicester, nobody can question Wes Morgan's commitment to the Foxes' cause.
