Paul Pogba Appointed Manchester United's Captain By Jose Mourinho

Man Utd news Jose Mourinho Ed Woodward Yerry Mina

Craig Burley says Jose Mourinho's post-match comments and Man United's opening win over Leicester were just more of the same to start the season.

Jose Mourinho insisted Manchester United are in for a "difficult" season despite kicking off the campaign with a 2-1 win over Leicester at Old Trafford.

This could hint that Shaw will play a big part in this season, and if the backing from his once worst enemy continues, then who's to say he won't have a massive season? It's the last time I speak about it. Over, it's finished, the market is closed.

"That's football, that's football management, I think football is changing and probably football managers should be called head coaches". That being said, the majority of pundits thought David de Gea should fill the vacancy, but alas Mourinho favored more of a "position player" in the captain's role. The Foxes spent the summer upgrading their defense, signing Jonny Evans and Ricardo Pereira to shore up a defense that allowed 60 goals last season, the fifth most in the Premier League. "Forget the name, the history, the shirt, every match is hard".

"Some of us, me included, didn't have a lot of training and we played a game". I always love the club. Pogba responded with a strong all-round performance, as well as scoring the opening goal after what I have to say was a very odd run-up for his penalty. "He played the World Cup not so long ago and played today, which shows how fit he is".

"I like my players and my group"- Jose Mourinho
Mourinho had an unlikely ally in Moyes who is still looking for a new job after he left West Ham United last season. And there were plenty of jokes and memes flying about on social media soon after the ball hit the back of the net.

He added: "The thinking is he is a very good penalty taker and likes the responsibility of it and he is first choice".

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.

United will be back in action next Sunday when they travel to Falmer Stadium to take on Brighton & Hove Albion. "We will have the same players, the injured players are not going to be back", said Mourinho.

Claude Puel, the visiting manager, said: "It was a shame to concede this goal at the beginning of the game. We allowed them to remain deep and close the space".
