Pogba penalty sets United on way to win over Leicester

Pogba penalty sets United on way to win over Leicester

Fittingly, Paul Pogba's first ever goal in the EPL came against Leicester during the 2016 Season.

Paul Pogba does not think he needs to remain Manchester United captain in order to show his leadership qualities.

Pogba, fresh from his triumph in Russian Federation with France but also the subject of recent transfer speculation, was named captain by manager Jose Mourinho and took responsibility for the penalty after a handball by Daniel Amartey, slowly shuffling up before beating Kasper Schmeichel.

Jose Mourinho hailed Manchester United captain Paul Pogba's willingness to put his body on the line to lead his club to a winning start in the Premier League with a 2-1 victory over Leicester City on Friday.

Pogba posted a message on Instagram after the game that notably did not include a reference to his club boss.

Pogba was pushed on his response and said that "if you're not happy, you can not give your best" when asked about what represents happiness and comfort for him.

However, coach Gennaro Gattuso according to Italian news outlet TMW wants to sign the winger who is also wanted by Juventus, Borussia Dortmund, and Atletico Madrid.

"There are things and there are things that I can not say otherwise I will get fined", Pogba said before walking off.

"They're all here, they help me, my team-mates, obviously it makes me want to give them love and give them good performances on the pitch".

This could hint that Shaw will play a big part in this season, and if the backing from his once worst enemy continues, then who's to say he won't have a massive season?

If Ashley Young was watching the clash it's fair to say he may have been anxious over his own future at the club following the youngster's display.

"We changed Daley Blind [returned to Ajax] for a 19-year-old kid [Dalot] that we believe has the potential to play right-back or left-back".

"It will be a hard season for everybody, not just for us", the 55-year-old said.

"In the periods Leicester were stronger we played as a team and coped well". "I try to do my best to help him and all of his family that have arrived".

"I always love this club". For me, it was a dream come true.

The Portuguese manager insisted Luke's display was a complete one even if one ignored the goal that was scored which is definitely a compliment.
