A 2-1 victory on Friday night, built around a stirring performance and an early penalty from World Cup victor Pogba as well as Luke Shaw's first career goal, might have been cause for good cheer but Mourinho chose the occasion to revisit his concerns over the club's recent business. "Grow up you t*t, if you want to be heard then say so, if you don't, then do one".

Pogba wore the captain's armband and scored a penalty in an impressive performance as United opened their Premier League campaign with a 2-1 win at home to Leicester.

Rumours of a move to Barcelona and Juventus have surfaced in recent weeks, however, and Goal understands the Red Devils are unwilling to let the 25-year-old leave this summer .

Showing few signs of rust despite only returning to training this week, the World Cup victor, wearing the captain's armband, impressed in possession and without it, leading by example and keeping his cool from the spot.

"There are things, and there are things that I can not say, otherwise I will get fined", he said.

He wrote: "I'll always give my best to the fans and my teammates no matter what's going on".

Martial was even said to be on his way out of Old Trafford this summer but that story should be put to be with the transfer window ending last Thursday. "We just want to go up and that's it". Paul Pogba can't play 90 minutes, Fred the same.

"That's all I say". A match where I needed six changes not three, [Three] weren't enough for me.

Pogba has been United's skipper before, of course, but this felt different - a symbolic gesture after another peculiar week in the Mourinho era. "Everybody was on the same page. We have to wait until the end of November to understand if we can fight for the title". "It's going to be easier and it makes the team go higher".

This was backed up by the fact Pogba was made captain for the match last night.

"It's about him understanding why he was so good, especially in the second part of the competition", said the Portuguese. I told them to give everything they had. I always love the club. I came in the academy, I grew up. "He's one of the players that I have to speak to, to see how physically and mentally he feels".

Their best chance for a stretch came when skipper Pogba threaded through Sanchez, whose laid off for Juan Mata to get away a shot that was deflected just wide.
