First United goal a career highlight for impressive Shaw

Mourinho was particularly annoyed to miss out on a series of centre-back targets, including Leicester's Harry Maguire who shone for England in Russian Federation.

"That's football, that's football management, I think football is changing and probably football managers should be called head coaches".

A tense relationship with Jose Mourinho appears to be at the heart of it. Questions about their relationship were raised last term and the midfielder is said to have been annoyed by his manager's comments around the World Cup.

"It will be a hard season for everybody, not just for us", the 55-year-old said.

'When he started, I don't know what he was doing actually, just moving up towards the ball, you thought, "Oh no, start running quickly, you're not going to get enough power in it",' the United legend said on Sky Sports. "We have to wait until the end of November to understand if we can fight for the title". We played very well, the performance was OK. "We must get used to teams who have players of the same quality that we have", he said.

"I just think the powers that be, and that's the worry I think for Manchester United, if they're not trusting Jose".

The attack followed a similar assault on Farah in May, when fighters came close to overrunning the city in western Afghanistan. The Taliban frequently exaggerate their battlefield gains and downplay losses incurred during fighting.

United were not convincing as Leicester displayed wonderful creativity and had good possession throughout the first 45 minutes of the much-anticipated match.

'But he was ready and practised lots of penalties during the World Cup'.

"We don't have a penalty taker, it's how we feel and I chose to take it. We want to go up". "We will have the same players, the injured players are not going to be back", said Mourinho. "He had a good pre-season".

Mourinho chose to name Pogba as captain in the absence of Antonio Valencia as United try to convince the 25-year-old midfielder that his long-term future lies at Old Trafford.

"You have to keep it in mind, but you have to keep working to get better and better because I am still quite young". He made that point in a press conference on Thursday by stating United's second-placed finish last season, 19 points behind City, was "one of my biggest achievements in the game".

United were outstanding in the early stages and I think the Foxes were in shock at the way they came out of the blocks and took control of the game.
