Manchester United fans delighted with Luke Shaw's performance vs Leicester City

Pogba followed up that television interview with an Instagram post that was liked by Manchester United's official account and created plenty of discussion, as he thanked his team-mates and he fans, notably leaving Mourinho and his coaching staff out of his message.

Less than two minutes into the Red Devils' opening game of the new Premier League season, Jose Mourinho's side were awarded a spot kick after Daniel Amartey handled inside the box.

"Of course the boys with the proper pre-seasons, they were in much better condition", Mourinho said.

The youngster still has time on his side in terms of establishing himself in the starting XI and can still fulfil his destiny.

This was backed up by the fact Pogba was made captain for the match last night. I am looking forward to seeing how their season progresses from here.

Yet, despite Mourinho's earlier warning that United face a "difficult" season after failing to be back him in the transfer market, a winning start did brighten the mood around Old Trafford. "We just want to go up and that's it".

But the manager's overriding emotion will be delight after the oft-criticised Shaw directed home his first goal for the club to put the result out of reach, despite substitute Jamie Vardy pulling one back in stoppage-time.




United have denied that happened and the same outlet said that Mino Raiola, the player's agent, had even struck a deal with Barcelona - the kind of interest that the club have vowed to reject.

He added: "I think it's a good move because what we all saw in the summer was Pogba demanding things of players in the France dressing room".

Quizzed about the conversation with Sanchez by Sky Sports after the 2-1 win, Pogba said: "We don't really have one [a designated penalty taker]".

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

(Picking him) was not hard, the decision belonged to him". "We played very well, the performance was OK".

'I want to be back in the England squad and involved in competitions like the World Cup. "All my players did not have 90 minutes in their legs and bodies". 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.
