Paul Pogba posts cryptic message to Instagram after Manchester United win

José Mourinho appeared to take aim at Ed Woodward, Manchester United's executive vice-chairman, for not sanctioning all of his transfer targets, with the manager saying maybe his title should be downgraded to "head coach".

"Winning the World Cup is in the past".

Anthony Martial is believed to be one of them but the United forward is going nowhere, nor is compatriot Paul Pogba amid reported interest from Barcelona and supposed tensions with Mourinho.

"Pogba was a monster", said Mourinho.

After sealing deals for Fred, Diogo Dalot and Lee Grant by early July, last season's Premier League runners-up were unable to add further despite the Portuguese's explicit desire to bring in two more players.

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

"Paul was fantastic, his contribution was incredible but the fuel was disappearing".

Harry Maguire is undoubtedly Leicester's first-choice centre-back, and rightly so, but, with Jonny Evans now waiting in the wings, Morgan could find his starting place under threat this season.

"Now that I know my team-mates, I can focus on what I want to win".

The France global scored in just the second minute after Sanchez's cross was handled by Daniel Armartey in the box.

"So for me it's a big season for Paul Pogba, it's a good move, let's see how Paul Pogba gets on tonight".

"We don't have a penalty taker, it's how we feel and I chose to take it".

Claude Puel, the visiting manager, said: "It was a shame to concede this goal at the beginning of the game". I feel we will be very happy with Fred this season'. You have to try your best to get points and even with the difficulties that we had with our pre-season, now I don't think is the time to be speaking about that.

Mourinho has consistently complained in recent weeks over his lack of backing from the United board and also had a host of injuries and players lacking match sharpness after the World Cup to contend with.

Following the game, Mourinho spoke to Sky Sports.

Asked if he had the tools to compete without new signings, Mourinho said: "I have my players, I like my players, I like to work with my players". The Guardian reports that Mourinho's wishlist was vetoed by United as there were concerns that "he should not be allowed to get his way if it meant potentially wasting tens of millions of pounds on a short-term fix".
