Pogba penalty sets United on way to win over Leicester

Man Utd: Luke Shaw Scores First-Ever Senior Goal As Red Devils Kick Off Premier League Season With 2-1 Win Over Leicester (Photos & Video)

Paul Pogba, the stand-in captain, answered his critics with an early penalty and Luke Shaw scored his first goal in senior football to hand Manchester United a 2-1 victory over Leicester City, but that was not enough to pacify Mourinho.

And in what looked like another dig at executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward, the 55-year-old suggested he is no longer United manager but "head coach". I still love football and give my best.

"I still speak to a couple of the players and there's no doubt that Jose Mourinho, this idea about people saying "he hasn't got the players" - he has got the players, the players like him".

"That's football management. I think football is changing".

Things were a lot more even for the rest of the match but I also think Mourinho will be happy with the way his side managed the game when Leicester were posing a threat.

"You have to know one thing".

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

"We knew we were not going to be fit, 100 per cent, but the aim and most important thing was to start well the Premier League and we did that".

MANCHESTER - Paul Pogba eschewed the opportunity to end talk he is unsettled at Manchester United by insisting: "there are things that I can not say, otherwise I will get fined". The path to the three points began with a Paul Pogba penalty kick just two minutes in after a hand ball, and the World Cup victor with France made no mistake, finishing calmly into the far post. "Paul was fantastic. His contribution was unbelievable".

But there is something brewing behind the scenes and there has been for some time after Mourinho left Pogba out of the team on multiple occasions last season and publicly criticized him.

"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".

Of Pogba's penalty, which came after just 75 seconds, he said: "A very good penalty taker".

It was nearly as if they were saying "look this is Old Trafford, and we are United - this is how we play".

At the other end, United's Belgian forward Romelu Lukaku, who like Vardy began on the bench, should have done better when he shot straight at Schmeichel after Sanchez found him alone in the box.
