We planned to go to Old Trafford early yesterday to try to get Pogba's autograph before the players went off to their hotel, but had a delay with the vehicle hire at Manchester Airport and missed the team. "They're the ones with the power these days - unfortunately".

With players like Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Wayne Rooney and Michael Carrick out of the equation, Pogba is now United's leader on the pitch.

The World Cup victor seemed to restore the faith put in him by Mourinho with his performance on the night, with a penalty in the 2-1 win the icing on the cake for the midfielder, who left the field to a standing ovation in the 84th minute.

The Red Devils finished in second place in the Premier League table last season to secure their best finish since 2012-13.

"I am surprised by what Pogba has said, because it's pretty bold, I think it shows his confidence".

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.

The wing backs were pressing forward, the midfielders worked well in tandem, and Leicester were unable to cope with the home side's fluid play at first.

'We have big and multi-functional coaching staff, and I think we are more the head coach than the manager.

"When I was first at United, Rio Ferdinand was captain and Patrice Evra, too", he said.

Paul Pogba appears uneasy at Manchester United.

"When we have everybody with you, everybody next to you know they want to fight for you, obviously it's going to be easier, you know?" Alexis Sanchez was desperate to take the spot-kick but captain Paul Pogba eventually slotted away in the third minute after the longest run up in history.

All of the pre-match coverage for the seasons opening game was exclusively focused on Manchester United and their bizarrely underwhelming transfer window.

So, could the reports of a rift between Pogba and Mourinho be true or are the midfielder's comments being blown out of proportion?

But on Saturday he tweeted: I'll always give my best to the fans and my teammates no matter what's going on. "He made one mistake in 90 minutes, he was very good defensively". Lukaku then passed up a golden chance when Schmeichel spread himself well to turn the Belgian's effort over the bar.
