He had a good pre-season - he was one of the guys who had a complete pre-season playing every match and training for five weeks'.

The Red Devils got their season off to a flyer as they ran out 2-1 winners thanks to goals from Paul Pogba and Luke Shaw.

"He worked amazingly well Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and he's one of the players that I have to speak to see how physically and mentally he feels".

Jose Mourinho was equally impressed with Shaw's display so supporters will definitely be looking forward to seeing more of him in the left-back spot.

Paul Pogba says he wants to be trusted more by manager Jose Mourinho.

"We have to wait until the end of November to understand if we can fight for the title", he said. 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.

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

Pogba played a key part in France's successful World Cup campaign and was therefore allowed to miss most of United's pre-season. "I am someone who likes challenges and wants to progress and you have to leave it behind now", Pogba told Sky Sports.

He has since been released after some of his convictions were quashed on appeal, and is now awaiting a Supreme Court decision. In addition, the company will expand its venture capital investments to identify promising new businesses and technology.

Making Pogba captain for the big kick-off, in the absence of regular skipper Antonio Valencia, is seen as another attempt to ease the tension.

The French midfielder, who captained and scored in the match, said this on his social media channels: "I'll always give my best to the fans and my teammates no matter what's going on".

Early reports suggested that United manager Mourinho made Pogba captain in a bid to convince the France World Cup victor that his future lies at the club amid continued interest from Barcelona.

Yes, they went ahead inside the first three minutes through Paul Pogba's penalty, but what was important was the way they went after Leicester right from the off.

"Of course the performance wasn't the best, but it's better to start like this and finish well than start very well and finish bad".

"(Picking Pogba) was not hard, the decision belonged to him. We had a lot of problems preparing this game.

"Pogba was a monster", said Mourinho.
