Manchester United hope to appoint a director of football once the club completes its current restructure.

Pogba answered the call to take his place in United's midfield just 26 days after lifting the World Cup with France, a response which earned his manager's praise as well as the captain's armband.

He said: "I always give my best for the fans, for the teammates and for the people that trust me".

His message sparked a flurry of tweets from United fans looking for hidden meanings, with some seeking reassurance that the player was settled at Old Trafford and not likely to jump ship to Barcelona.

We should start the Premier League with a win and we did today. "I had my plans for many months and I find myself with the market closed in a situation I did not think I would be in".

Pogba has been United's skipper before, of course, but this felt different - a symbolic gesture after another peculiar week in the Mourinho era.

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.

And Savage says Chelsea will finish third this season, ahead of United, Tottenham and Arsenal. Leicester were strong in a few periods of the game, but we coped with that as a team which is also an important thing.

"[Kasper] Schmeichel is very good on pens but no chance".

"Last season's 81 points will take some beating, but if Jose Mourinho gets the best out of Paul Pogba, you can't take them lightly".

"It was not easy to manage the game from the touchline, but I told the players we had good periods, lots of glimpses of the type of football we wanted to play". For me, it was a dream come true.

This put them in a comfortable position throughout the rest of the match, and even more so when Luke Shaw tapped home in an unorthodox manner in the second half.

All does not appear well behind the scenes, despite Mourinho saying on the eve of the Leicester match that when the media "repeat 1,000 times that my relationship with my players is not good, it's a lie that (is) repeated 1,000 times".

"But I am happy with the performance of my team, it's encouraging for the future".
