Mourinho hails 'monster' Pogba performance as Man United make winning start

Mourinho hails 'monster' Pogba performance as Man United make winning start

Jose Mourinho enters his third season in charge of United looking to capture the league title.

And when Amartey was substituted, it didn't get much better - Luke Shaw completely lost Rachid Ghezzal for his goal in the 83rd minute, while Ricardo Pereira was ineffective right-wing and only started to look like a Premier League player when switched to right-back.

Speaking on BBC Radio 5Live, Moyes - who oversaw 51 games as United boss - said: "The main signing Man United have made this summer is Fred, and I think the rest of it is potential and back-up as far as the goalkeeper goes".

"In the Premier League, we must get used to playing teams with the same quality we have", Mourinho told Sky Sports. I think they were looking to bring in one or maybe two centre-halves, but it hasn't been easy for any club to strengthen in central defenders. It's over, finished, the market is closed and no more talk about it.

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

"We knew it was going to be hard because some of us, including myself, didn't have any pre-season games".

Asked if he had the tools to compete without new signings, Mourinho said: "I have my players, I like my players, I like to work with my players".

Less than a month since Pogba scored in the World Cup final to help France lift the trophy, he was thrown straight into action by Mourinho despite just returning to pre-season training this week.

Pogba's penalty two minutes was, what I guess you can say, weird? "Forget the name, forget the history, forget the shirts".

As Anthony Martial, linked with a move away in the transfer window, warmed up to applause from United fans, United fellow forward Romelu Lukaku after 65 minutes.

'I won't be full with a World Cup. But again, the perception of the people that reads can be different, but I like my players and my group. I didn't win a Premier League, didn't win a Champions League or European Championship'.

Definitely, something for Claude Puel to consider with Marc Albrighton sat on the bench for the game at Old Trafford, especially given that Leicester's delivery from wide areas was fairly common, but rarely effective.

"We showed good control, good football, a lot of chances", he said.

"We deserved a minimum of a draw. I am happy with the performance to make this game in this condition, it's encouraging for the future".
