GETTY Jose Mourinho fears Paul Pogba's agent not acting in his best interest

Jose Mourinho Paul Pogba

The Ghanaian defender's hand had a touch of the ball with just three minutes into the start of the game and Paul Pogba struck the first goal of the season from the resultant free kick.

Gary Neville was anxious Paul Pogba would miss his penalty during Manchester United's Premier League curtain raiser against Leicester at Old Trafford.

Just 26 days after lifting the World Cup with France, the 25-year-old scored an early penalty and dominated the midfield before being replaced after 84 minutes.

"So was hard for everybody but the players gave absolutely everything, the match was good, the referee was, as always, very good and Leicester very good, too".

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.

Leicester will hope to get their first points on the board when they welcome Premier League new-boys Wolves to the King Power Stadium next Saturday.

Other fans were not so sympathetic.

He said: 'You have to know one thing.


Leicester forced attack after attack, but each one failed to bring the foxes equal.In his debut in the Premier League, youngster James Maddison, who signed this summer from Norwich city, looked very impressive.

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?

"We played well in periods against a good team that invest more than us".

Mourinho's relationship with Pogba has attracted as much attention as his dealings with executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward in recent months, but events at Old Trafford appeared to be restorative.

"Leicester were strong in periods but we coped with that as a team". And wearing this, it's even more because of the past, because of the players that played here, the people that have been wearing this.

Pogba's penalty two minutes was, what I guess you can say, weird? "For sure they are going to have a very good season". I need more changes but I couldn't. I want to play [Anthony] Martial for [Juan] Mata or Alexis but I couldn't.

"Paul was fantastic, his contribution was wonderful", Mourinho said after taking his captain off late in the game.
