A winning start for Manchester United but there's trouble in store

Jose Mourinho

Yet Pogba has now stirred the rumour mill over his future once again, with comments to the media that suggest his discontent under Mourinho's leadership will not evaporate any time soon.

And after a brief conversation with Sanchez, Pogba stepped up to bury the spot kick - but only after an unusual run-up that became an instant hit on Twitter.

Speaking to Sky sports the Manchester United defender had a lot to say about his first goal for Manchester United. "Maybe on the next game I leave it to Alexis", said Pogba.

"I know that Paul doesn't resist for 90, the same with Fred".

That's the verdict of former England captain and Match of the Day pundit Alan Shearer. "Grow up you t*t, if you want to be heard then say so, if you don't, then do one".

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

"You have to keep it in mind, but you have to keep working to get better and better because I am still quite young". I was thinking, "How do you get the power into it?"

"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". 'The manager was inside, the physio, the kitman, we were all a group.

Kawhi Leonard pens letter thanking Spurs, Gregg Popovich
He says he and his family (re: Uncle Dennis) want to thank the Spurs organization and "the people and fans of San Antonio ". Leonard also expressed his gratitude to Spurs head coach Greg Popovich who mentored him for seven seasons.

"We don't have a penalty taker, it's how we feel and I made a decision to take it".

It certainly seems like Pogba is making a point by mentioning the fans and teammates but not Mourinho, as the fire is fuelled further about a potential exit.

The Frenchman also declined to mention Mourinho when speaking to reporters after the game, insisting that he gives his all in every match for the fans, his team-mates and those that trust him.

"Leicester were strong in periods but we coped with that as a team".

It's not known how Mourinho will react to the appointment, should he still be United boss at the time, but the Portuguese may already be expecting the change as he hinted at being no more than a head coach after Friday's Premier League victory over Leicester. I know it's a great cup, it will stay in my mind, but I want to win all the trophies. "I doubt he'll be going anywhere this season".

United's performance on Friday failed to build on Paul Pogba's early penalty, as they were dominated by Leicester for spells before Luke Shaw scored an all-important second goal in the closing minutes.

"Pogba was a monster, we thought maximum 60 minutes but he managed the 80".
