Paul Pogba Appointed Manchester United's Captain By Jose Mourinho

Pogba who joined the Manchester United setup just four days before the match, never looked like he missed pre-season friendlies.

Paul Pogba has posted a cryptic message on social media after helping Manchester United to a 2-1 win over Leicester saying he will always give his best "no matter what is going on".

In recent weeks, Pogba has been linked with a move to Barcelona and his relationship with manager Jose Mourinho has appeared strained, especially after the player didn't return to preseason training early like many of his team-mates.

Luke will also still have some time before Ashley Young is fully match-fit so there's hopes he can solidify his spot before that happens.

Despite fans celebrating the club's best EPL finish in five years last season - finishing runners up to neighbours Man City - Scholes said that it meant nothing to him.

His first thought was that they were practicing for an air show. "I just heard it; it looked like a bomb". It is unclear how the employee was able to taxi the plane on a runway and take off without authorisation.

"I had only two options: Scott [McTominay] or Paul, but if I play Scott I play two kids and a new player, so I asked Paul and he put himself available for the team and he was very, very good for us".

There was a fantastic atmosphere inside the ground because United were playing the kind of football their fans want to see and showing them something they had not seen for a long time, which was a bit of a spark.

"You can't sort of fall back and think "I'm changing my mind", you've gone too far. I think we are more the head coach than the manager", he said.

The United manager claimed during the tour of the US that Pogba's form had improved during the World Cup because he was free from distractions and fully focused on football.

On his United debut, Fred did well at what I would call the ugly work, which was winning the ball back and not trying to be too clever when he had it, and I thought Alexis Sanchez's work without the ball was superb too. "(Picking him) was not hard, the decision belonged to him". I want to progress and get better again and I want to win more trophies.
