Paul Pogba MUTV interview after great display vs leicester

Jose Mourinho insists he has a good relationship with his squad

Paul Pogba's comical penalty run-up has sent social media into meltdown, after the World Cup victor pulled rank over Alexis Sanchez in Manchester United's 2-1 win against Leicester at Old Trafford.

Mourinho had plenty of praise for Pogba, who is not yet at full fitness following France's World Cup win.

Having failed to land the new centre-back that he craved, Mourinho says that he is now in a hard position.

He got that from his team's display at Old Trafford, from the way they started so well to how they saw the game out at the end.

United were not convincing as Leicester displayed wonderful creativity and had good possession throughout the first 45 minutes of the much-anticipated match. Mourinho was left with little recourse to hand him over the captaincy, a role some argue he may have already earned.

United had several chances to extend their lead against a Leicester side that called David De Gea into action more often that Mourinho would like.

The EPL opener kicks off at 3pm Eastern Time.

"We don't have many solutions and we want to go with everything we have".

"He looks fed up and with what has come up from the America trip I don't see him lasting the season".

Jose Mourinho handed Paul Pogba the captain's armband for Leicester clash.

After a summer spent continually lamenting his lot at Manchester United, Jose Mourinho was relatively chipper in his post-match interview with Sky Sports.

The 23-year-old hit the back of the net for the first time in his senior career as United opened their Premier League campaign with victory over Leicester on Friday evening.

José Mourinho appeared to take aim at Ed Woodward, Manchester United's executive vice-chairman, for not sanctioning all of his transfer targets, with the manager saying maybe his title should be downgraded to "head coach".

"Harry started and played well, Jamie came in with good quality and scored". Pogba responded with a strong all-round performance, as well as scoring the opening goal after what I have to say was a very unusual run-up for his penalty.

It took Pogba just two minutes to make his mark as he put United 1-0 ahead with a perfectly placed penalty past Kasper Schmeichel.
