Jose reacts to win over Leicester

Jose reacts to win over Leicester”

Having returned from France's triumph in Russian Federation last month to intense media speculation about his future under United manager Mourinho, the 25-year-old Pogba was named skipper of a team that included debutant Fred.

"So was hard for everybody but the players gave absolutely everything, the match was good, the referee was, as always, very good and Leicester very good, too".

While the Premier League transfer window is shut, clubs in other leagues around Europe can still buy players until the end of the month.

Manchester United's Paul Pogba gestures during the game against Leicester City at Old Trafford August 10, 2018.

The crowd went wild as players surrounded the World Cup victor, but one fan, who was named after the great George Best was celebrating more than most.

Despite having their own well-formulated attacks, Mourinho's side often found themselves on the back foot and defending for long bouts of the game.Throughout the seasons, we have become used to an overtly attacking Manchester United side with a strong line of defence. "We thought maximum (he could play) 60 minutes, but he managed 80". "No, I just have to be myself and do what I know, do what I can do and do what I know to do".

Asked about the differences between playing for France and playing for United, Pogba said: "I am the same, but it's a different team, obviously".

It was well-timed after a week of stories about the strained relationship between player and manager, but the former Juventus man insists the armband didn't change anything once he got onto the pitch.

Are Liverpool the biggest threat to Manchester City title defence?

"When you are comfortable, when people trust you, you are good in the head and it's easier".

Paul Pogba who scored the opening goal of the season spoke to Sky Sports after his team win.

"I always love the club", he said. That said, I have made a decision to match the scoreline in giving two positives and one negative.

"If he upsets too many players because of his way, then ultimately he will lose his job like he did". I want to play [Anthony] Martial for [Juan] Mata or Alexis but I couldn't.
