Pogba scores as Man United wins Premier League opener

Barcelona transfer news

Jose Mourinho was left frustrated by a lack of deadline-day activity as Manchester United failed to bring in the centre-back he craved.

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

"Of course it makes me proud, it makes me happy to wear this (armband) at a big club like Manchester United", he said. 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.

"We have to wait until the end of November to understand if we can fight for the title", he said.

"It was not easy to manage the game from the touchline, but I told the players we had good periods, lots of glimpses of the type of football we wanted to play".

Victory in the Premier League opener was a much-needed shot in the arm after weeks of doom and gloom, with summer target Harry Maguire's inclusion in the Foxes' line-up serving as a reminder of what they missed.

United fans purred at the presence of Pereira, Fred and Paul Pogba playing together in midfield and Andreas reserved some kind words for our World Cup victor, who played over an hour after less than a week of training. Paul Pogba can't play 90 minutes, Fred the same.

Pogba, who carried over his fine World Cup winning form into the first game and produced a complete performance as skipper, shook hands with the subs after being replaced for Fellaini, and though Martial extended his hand to his compatriot - his frustration at not coming on was clear.

Pogba responded with a strong all-round performance, as well as scoring the opening goal after what I have to say was a very odd run-up for his penalty. "We will have the same players, the injured players are not going to be back", said Mourinho. I want to progress and get better again and I want to win more trophies.

Pogba was a monster. Just a few days ago FC Barcelona offered Man United more than € 100 million to pry him away from Old Trafford.

And in what looked like another dig at executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward, the 55-year-old suggested he is no longer United manager but "head coach".

Luke's had a decent pre-season under his belt, looks fit and appears to have finally fixed his attitude "problems"; if this isn't his season then when will it be?
