Paul Pogba named Manchester United captain against Leicester

Man Utd news Jose Mourinho Romelu Lukaku

Paul Pogba is demonstrating the power he has at Manchester United to Jose Mourinho, Sam Wallace told the Sunday Supplement.

Barcelona are still certain they can complete a deal for Manchester United for star midfielder Paul Pogba before the end of the transfer window, according to the Mundo Deportivo (h/t Daily Mail).

Jose Mourinho appointed World Cup victor Paul Pogba as his captain for his sides' Premier League opener against Leicester City.

The France playmaker then continued to impress as the first half wore on at Old Trafford, leading his teammates by example. "That's all I say".

MANCHESTER - Paul Pogba eschewed the opportunity to end talk he is unsettled at Manchester United by insisting: "there are things that I can not say, otherwise I will get fined".

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

Pogba was a real leader with and without the ball on Friday night and with this added pressure of being captain, it seems to have brought the best out of a player who's never lacked confidence.

However, when it comes to being a leader in the United team, Pogba says he does not need the armband in order to assume such responsibilities. "I have always been talking to the team-mates".

"I am someone who is not [in] a role that I give to myself". Playing more centrally, he did well to help create chances in the final third with sharp passes. I know it's a great cup, it will stay in my mind, but I want to win all the trophies.

United went on to score another after Luke Shaw bagged his first senior goal in over 100 appearances, and despite a late header from Jamie Vardy, it was a mere consolation as Mourinho's side secured all three points at Old Trafford.

Pogba has become the teacher in this United midfield, with summer signing Fred and academy product Andreas Pereira looking up to the Frenchman and learning from him.

"[United] is a different team, obviously".

Pogba said "everybody was on the same page" in the France dressing room, from manager Didier Deschamps to the staff and players. It's going to be easier and it makes the team go higher.

"I always love the club", he said.

Fred, 25, along with Lee Grant and Diogo Dalot are the only players to have joined the club during an underwhelming transfer window for the Red Devils. I was meant to come inside and I managed to get in front of him [his marker] and put it in.
