Paul Pogba captains Manchester United in Premier League opener against Leicester City

Pogba only returned to training at the start of the week after helping France to win the tournament but he was thrust into the starting line-up on Friday and given the captain's armband, when his penalty set United on course for a 2-1 win against Leicester.

"I think football is changing and probably football managers should be called head coaches".

Pogba's penalty two minutes was, what I guess you can say, weird?

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

Having returned from France's triumph in Russian Federation last month to intense media speculation about his future under United manager Mourinho, the 25-year-old Pogba was named skipper of a team that included debutant Fred. The 55-year-old told BBC Radio 5 Live: "I agree to the point that it doesn't matter who you're playing in the Premier League, they're tough". Following a strong World Cup, the Red Devils will lean on Paul Pogba to display his incredible talent. "Forget the name, the history, the shirt, every match is hard".

"We don't really have one", Pogba said on Sky Sports.

The partial eclipse is when the moons path only partially blocks our view of the sun without entirely obscuring it. So, unlike previous year , no place on Earth will see the glorious spectacle of a total solar eclipse.

Their first thought when they got the ball was always to get it forward and they were trying to get their wide players high up the pitch, which is the United way.

"I made a choice to try and finish the game", he said. I don't know their identity right now, I don't know how they can dig deep and turn a losing position to victory and they style that they'll come out with. "I think it's the last time we speak about it, it's over, finished, the market is closed and no more talk about it".

"(Picking him) was not hard, the decision belonged to him".

Matteo Darmian tested Leicester goalkeeper Kasper Schmeichel at the near post early into a second half that United started with bundles of possession, but few clear-cut chances.

The report puts up another difference between the management and manager as they believe in keeping players such as Anthony Martial, Luke Shaw and Paul Pogba.

Leicester came close to an equalizer though when substitute Jamie Vardy robbed Shaw and found Demarai Gray whose flick forced another good save out of De Gea. "In this condition it has been a good performance".
