Jose Mourinho insists he has a good relationship with his squad

Jose Mourinho insists he has a good relationship with his squad

"That's football, that's football management, I think football is changing and probably football managers should be called head coaches".

Pogba's penalty two minutes was, what I guess you can say, weird?

Former Arsenal playmaker Nicholas predicted that Mourinho wouldn't last the season at Manchester United after a hard summer.

And the Portuguese seemed to confirm those reports after Friday's unimpressive 2-1 win over Leicester City in the Premier League's opening game of the 2018-19 season, a campaign he predicts will be "difficult" for his squad. "I wonder if Jose's words the other day, "Let's wait until the end of November", I would be very surprised if United weren't top of the league come the end of November".

"The thinking was that he is a very good penalty taker and he likes the responsibility of it and he's the first choice", Mourinho said, via the Mirror.

Paul Pogba pledged to continue giving his best for fans, team-mates and "the people that trust me" in the wake of renewed speculation about his Manchester United future. It was a good match with three good teams, in my opinion. I know it's a great cup, it will stay in my mind, but I want to win all the trophies.

"I think he's been telling people he's done a fabulous job finishing second".

Former United captain and Sky Sports pundit Gary Neville admitted Pogba's unusual run-up had him anxious.

The wing backs were pressing forward, the midfielders worked well in tandem, and Leicester were unable to cope with the home side's fluid play at first.

The United boss clashed several times with Shaw last season but he was jubilant following the left-back's goal last night, rushing over to his staff to celebrate.

"Harry and Jamie came back just on Monday, with few training sessions, but I have a lot of injuries and players not available from the World Cup". Maybe on the next game I will leave it to Alexis (Sanchez).

Yes, Marcus Rashford missed a couple of half-chances, but there was nothing clear-cut, while Romelu Lukaku should have scored when he was clean through but Kasper Schmeichel made a superb save. "I haven't won the Premier League, I haven't won the Champions League, I haven't won the European Championship so there are more to win".

"It was not a good result, but it was a good performance", Puel said.
