Paul Pogba Appointed Manchester United's Captain By Jose Mourinho

  • Man Utd vs Leicester line ups Pogba captain summer signing starts Maguire in for Foxes

Jose Mourinho's relationship with his players has also come under scrutiny, but any such tension was forgotten as Pogba and Shaw - a duo that have endured ups and downs with the United boss - secured a 2-1 win against Leicester.

Paul Pogba is demonstrating the power he has at Manchester United to Jose Mourinho, Sam Wallace told the Sunday Supplement.

The midfielder, a World Cup victor with France, has been the subject of speculation in recent days concerning both a possible transfer to Barcelona and his relationship with manager Jose Mourinho.

The French World Cup victor was made captain for United last night and he scored an early penalty in the 2-1 win over Leicester City, the opening Premier League game of the new season.

But if Barca offer them the chance to make a profit on the player they signed for a then world-record fee of $115 million two summers ago, and someone who has never really hit top form consistently, should United snap their hands off?

"There are things and there are things that I can not say otherwise I will get fined", Pogba said before walking off.

"I still enjoying playing football, I still love football and I still give my best with the team, for the team. Marcus Rashford was in trouble but he played", said Mourinho.

Pogba was named captain for the match despite only returning to training on Monday following an outstanding World Cup campaign with France.

And Savage says the Reds will push City this season, however, they're not good enough to win their first Premier League title just yet.

If Ashley Young was watching the clash it's fair to say he may have been anxious over his own future at the club following the youngster's display.

Earlier in the month, reports from Martial's camp says he will prefer to join a club in England as he doesn't want to go outside of the EPL.

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

"I always love the club", he said. For me, it was a dream come true.

"Of course the boys with the proper pre-seasons, they were in much better condition", Mourinho said.

"And wearing this armband, it's even more [special] because of the past, because of the players that played here, the people that have been wearing this".
