Cryptic captain Pogba: 'There are things I can not say'

Paul, he was fantastic his contribution was awesome, but the fuel was disappearing every minute so we were in trouble and I needed [Marouane] Fellaini and [Scott] McTominay to give me that balance in midfield.

It was a decent start to the season considering the number of injury and fitness worries that United had to contend with, but Friday's skipper is not getting carried away.

The French midfielder, who captained and scored in the match, said this on his social media channels: "I'll always give my best to the fans and my teammates no matter what's going on".

Mourinho cut a gloomy figure throughout pre-season, seemingly frustrated by the club's failure - or disinclination - to secure more of his summer transfer targets.

Mourinho also confirmed Pogba had his blessing to take the penalty after what appeared to be a disagreement with Alexis Sanchez.

"We have big coaching staffs and I think we are more the head coach than the manager". "We thought maximum (he could play) 60 minutes, but he managed 80".

Leicester have spent the past few weeks battling United, who tried to sign center-back Harry Maguire after the World Cup. I didn't win a Premier League, didn't win a Champions League or European Championship'.

Leicester looked startled by United's early intensity but began to fell their way into the match as debutant James Maddison impressed and their wide men made in-roads. We knew it was going to be hard because some of us, including myself, didn't have any pre-season games. The end of the window that has sparked numerous claims that Mourinho's side has definitely ruled themselves out of contention for the Premier League trophy, with some even claiming they are at risk of falling out of the top six altogether.

I don't want to speak too soon after one game, but I want to be up there with the best left-backs in the world.

"I have always been talking to the team-mates".

"No, I just have to be myself and do what I know, do what I can do and do what I know to do".

"I came from the academy, I played for the first team".

Luke Shaw put United 2-0 up late in the second-half with his first career goal, before Jamie Vardy ensured a nervy finish by pulling one back for Leicester in added time. Right from his childhood, he thoroughly enjoyed following all the sporting events but his true calling came only when he started writing about them.
