Paul Pogba captains Manchester United in Premier League opener against Leicester City

The Chilean believes they can help get the best out of him

However the French forward appear to frustrate his boss when leaving the pre-season tour of America early to attend the birth of his second child.

They might not have set the world alight, but Manchester United's 2-1 win over Leicester on Friday night was still a significant result and performance. It's the last time I speak about it.

"He seemed to be a leader in that dressing room and Jose knows he needs that out here at the start of the season".

Jose Mourinho handed Paul Pogba the captain's armband for Leicester clash.

"We don't have many solutions and want to go with everything we have" he concluded in his pre-match press conference.

Following the captures of right back Diogo Dalot, Brazilian midfielder Fred and backup goalkeeper Lee Grant earlier in the summer, the club failed to bring in any other signings on transfer deadline day, much to Mourinho's dismay. "We have big multi-functional coaching staffs and I think we are more the head coach than the manager". "I had my plans for many months and I find myself with the market closed in a situation I did not think I would be in".

Busy Everton end transfer deadline day satisfied thanks to arrivals from Barcelona
Everton have agreed a deal to sign Yerry Mina , the defender leaving Barcelona after an unhappy six-month spell in La Liga. The club announced the signing of the former former Shakhtar Donetsk player just 21 minutes before the 5pm deadline.

US, EU seek details of Saudi arrests but dodge Canada spat
The Saudi Kingdom was less than thrilled about Canada's "interference", saying it had no business to meddle in its local affairs. Bahrain said it supports the measures by Saudi Arabia in response to statements made by Canada's foreign affairs minister.

Mourinho did not get the new centre-half he wanted in the transfer window and, from the comments he made after the Leicester match about being a head coach instead of a manager, he is still not happy about it.

Showing few signs of rust despite only returning to training this week, the World Cup victor, wearing the captain's armband, impressed in possession and without it, leading by example and keeping his cool from the spot.

Nonetheless Mourinho was pleased with his team's display, singling out Pogba and Shaw for particular praise, and the overall spirit. "We must get used to teams who have players of the same quality that we have", he said.

Pogba wrote: "I'll always give my best to the fans and my teammates no matter what's going on. [Kasper] Schmeichel is very good on penalties but no chance". Mourinho isn't a ball-buster per se, but he isn't going to baby his players if he sees room for improvement. "We thought maximum [he could play] 60 minutes, but he managed 80".

Fittingly, Paul Pogba's first ever goal in the EPL came against Leicester during the 2016 Season.

"But he's so confident and he started the game brilliantly", Neville added.
