Charlie Nicholas makes Man United prediction about Jose Mourinho

The midfielder, a World Cup victor with France, has been the subject of speculation in recent days concerning both a possible transfer to Barcelona and his relationship with manager Jose Mourinho.

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

Former Manchester United man Dimitar Berbatov reacted to the club's win over Leicester City in style, celebrating with his children.

The biggest news is World Cup victor Paul Pogba being named as captain; whether this is a permanent decision remains to be seen.

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.
After the World Cup I am the same. I needed more changes, but I couldn't so it was not easy to manage the game from the touchline point of view.

Quizzed about the conversation with Sanchez by Sky Sports after the 2-1 win, Pogba said: "We don't really have one [a designated penalty taker]. So I asked Paul and he put himself forward for the team and was very, very good for us".

USA tariff hike on Turkey fails to make economic sense
With new Iran sanctions coming up, more Turkish banks could face us probing if they are doing business with the Islamic republic. Erdogan on Friday once again urged Turks to exchange gold and dollars into lira to stop the currency from plunging.

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? I want to progress and get better again and I want to win more trophies.

"I find this really odd", he said. Pogba responded with a strong all-round performance, as well as scoring the opening goal after what I have to say was a very unusual run-up for his penalty.

José Mourinho appeared to take aim at Ed Woodward, Manchester United's executive vice-chairman, for not sanctioning all of his transfer targets, with the manager saying maybe his title should be downgraded to "head coach". For us it will be a hard season because I had my plans, and I had my plans for many months, and I started the Premier League season without a situation I thought.

Following the captures of right back Diogo Dalot, Brazilian midfielder Fred and backup goalkeeper Lee Grant earlier in the summer, the club failed to bring in any other signings on transfer deadline day, much to Mourinho's dismay.

Despite having their own well-formulated attacks, Mourinho's side often found themselves on the back foot and defending for long bouts of the game.Throughout the seasons, we have become used to an overtly attacking Manchester United side with a strong line of defence.
