Man Utd: Jose Mourinho finds some harmony at last - Dublin

Mourinho

Claude Puel accused Leicester of lacking a clinical edge as they slipped to an opening-day Premier League defeat to Manchester United at Old Trafford.

"We knew we were not going to be fit, 100 per cent, but the aim and most important thing was to start well the Premier League and we did that".

The pair of big personalities went back and forth before Pogba, who was the captain on the night, pulled rank and stepped up.

United added only Brazilian midfielder Fred, teenage full-back Diogo Dalot and third-choice goalkeeper Lee Grant to the squad that finished 19 points adrift of champions Manchester City last season.

But the hosts got a much-needed lift after just two minutes when Daniel Amartey was harshly adjudged by referee Andre Mariner to have handled Alexis Sanchez's shot.

That's a clear indication that Pogba's relationship with Mourinho has affected his happiness and the ability to turn in the kind of dominant display he gave against Leicester.

"I have the foundations to do that here with the manager and my team-mates at Manchester United".

"The players let me I would say lead and give me the space to speak as well, and we have the same objective", he said about his successful summer with France, before pointedly picking out manager Didier Deschamps for special mention.

"After 30 minutes I was out of breath and I told one of the staff to put some water on the side, but he didn't, so I couldn't go and drink".

"Having the armband it's not like, 'Oh, I will show that I am a real captain and have to do extra work, '" he said.

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

"But I am happy with the performance of my team, it's encouraging for the future". For me, it was a dream come true. "I hope so. Will it entertain the fans? No". I want to progress and get better again and I want to win more trophies.
