The French World Cup victor was made captain for United last night and he scored an early penalty in the 2-1 win over Leicester City, the opening Premier League game of the new season.

"That's football, that's football management, I think football is changing and probably football managers should be called head coaches".

"My view is that first of all is hard for me to believe we finished second when I listen, when I read, not much but sometimes I do, it is hard to believe that we finished second because you [the media] are capable of making people that finish second look like they were relegated, and people who win nothing, finish below us, and you make them look like serial winners", Mourinho said.

"I made a choice to try and finish the game", he said. I am looking forward to seeing how their season progresses from here. I know it's a great cup, it will stay in my mind, but I want to win all the trophies.

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

Is there a rift between Paul Pogba and Jose Mourinho?
