Jose Mourinho Second with Manchester United among my biggest achievements

Paul Pogba

Mourinho described Paul Pogba as "a monster" after the unsettled Frenchman responded to being captain with a dominant performance in United's 2-1 win.

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

"We played against a team that invest more than us", Mourinho said.

Mourinho warned it could be a "difficult season" if United did not bring in at least one more face, with centre-back the main focus in a market that was inflated by last summer's deals. "We have to wait until the end of November to understand if we can fight for the title".

United would have allegedly deemed an offer of £100m as good value for money, with the France worldwide only being 25 years of age and having the potential to play a leading role in the centre of the defence for a decade. "They spent more money..."

Manchester United fans couldn't hide their delight with Luke Shaw's performance vs Leicester City after he netted his first senior goal. "All my players did not have 90 minutes in their legs and bodies". Winning the World Cup is in the past. "We want to go up". I am looking forward to seeing how their season progresses from here.

"He worked amazingly well Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, and he's one of the players that I have to speak to see how physically and mentally he feels".

Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho made a point about Leicester's spending (Nick Potts/PA).

That's not surprising, because I know from experience that everyone is a bit rusty for the first game back.

Mourinho is known for his short-term measures but the club want to keep a fine balance between the manager's requirements and trying to keep him happy.

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.

United starts the season just like it started the match: perfectly.

"It was not hard [to pick him], the decision belonged to him because Andreas Pereira comes from the Valencia bench as a winger to play No. 6, Fred, 10 days training, Ukrainian league, comes direct to Old Trafford, Ander Herrera injured".
