Manchester United star Paul Pogba makes final decision on Barcelona move

Mino Raiola

Paul Scholes has conceded that there is a chance that Jose Mourinho will leave Manchester United during the 2018-19 Premier League season.

After an incredible World Cup in Russian Federation this summer, which saw France win a second Jules Rimmet crown, as well as England reaching the semi-final, domestic football has returned.

Pogba was named captain by manager Jose Mourinho and took responsibility for the penalty after a handball by Daniel Amartey, slowly shuffling up before beating Kasper Schmeichel. "They spent more money than us, so in the Premier League we must get used to teams with players of the same quality that we have", he said.

However, United saw out the rest of second-half stoppage time to start the season with three points and maintain Mourinho's unbeaten record in Premier League openers with nine wins and one draw over 10 matches.

Asked if he has the squad to go head-to-head with Manchester City for the title, Mourinho suggested that the first three months of the season would prove whether his warning to the United board was right or wrong.

Ernesto Valverde identified Paul Pogba as Iniesta's replacement, who left the club for a stint in Japan at the end of last season.

Harry Maguire, from defence, and James Maddison, from midfield, regularly pushed themselves out to that side in an effort to isolate Juan Mata and Matteo Darmian and, if Leicester were going to get a result, then it would have come from that side.

Neither will get the opportunity to hash things out since the two teams do not face each other in the upcoming season. He then asked Thomas Davis to give them some space so he could confront Benjamin about his comments.

Pogba's third-minute spot-kick settled the hosts' nerves as United allayed some of the doom and gloom predicted by Mourinho after failing to land a series of targets before Thursday's transfer deadline.

"In my opinion it would be a good performance but with the circumstances I think very good because pre-season was very hard and we needed this fantastic spirit by the players to manage this performance and this result".

Tottenham boss Mauricio Pochettino has been one of the more outspoken critics of the shortened window with time running out for Spurs to make a single signing this summer.

Robben, who has played alongside Boateng in six title-winning Bayern teams, indicated that he would be disappointed to see the World Cup victor leave the club.

"Pogba was a monster", Mourinho said.

Leicester manager Claude Puel praised his players.
