Mourinho makes 'head coach' jibe after transfer frustration

Man Utd transfer news Paul Pogba Barcelona

Mourinho would rather have had more bodies available due to successful transfers - and made one pointed reference to his own role in the recruitment process - but he could not fail to be impressed by Pogba's powerhouse showing in the 2-1 win.

'That's football management. I think football is changing.

"Of course, it will be a hard season for everybody".

"We should start the Premier League with a win and we did", he said.

"We have to wait until the end of November to understand if we can fight for the title", he said.

Mourinho has cut a frustrated figure following United's failure to meet his transfer demands, with no players joining Fred, Diogo Dalot and Lee Grant in Manchester, after the Portuguese boss requested at least two more signings before Thursday's deadline. "Paul was fantastic. His contribution was unbelievable".

De Gea made a huge stop in the first half on James Maddison, denying the young player in the box with this save. He said: "I have my players, I like my players, I like to work with my players".

"Every team is a good team, forget the name, forget the history, forget the shirt".

Pogba has been linked with a move away from Old Trafford this week after stories emerged that the Frenchman has grown unsettled by some of Mourinho's comments during the summer. We thought a maximum 60 minutes but he managed 80'.

Incredibly, Pogba had his penalty ruled out and was shown a second yellow card for faking his shot, which unfairly sent the goalkeeper the wrong way. 'The thinking is he is a very good penalty taker and likes the responsibility of it. "We just want to go up and that's it".

Mourinho also confirmed Pogba had his blessing to take the penalty after what appeared to be a disagreement with Alexis Sanchez.

Leicester responded well though with new signing James Maddison forcing a fine save out of United keeper David De Gea as the visitors gave Mourinho's side plenty to think about. "As a Man United fan, winning is the most important thing". United were interested in signing Raphael Varane of Real Madrid and were looking to splash over £100m for the World Cup victor. I didn't win a Premier League, didn't win a Champions League or European Championship'.
