#MUNLEI: Pogba Captains Manchester United To Winning Start Against Leicester

Paul Pogba assumed the responsibility of captain handed to him by Jose Mourinho to help Manchester United get off to a winning start in the Premier League with a 2-1 win over Leicester City on Friday.

Less than a month since Pogba scored in the World Cup final to help France lift the trophy, he was thrown straight into action by Mourinho and his third-minute penalty put United on course for victory.

Luke Shaw’s late second sealed the points before Jamie Vardy headed home a consolation for the visitors.

Pogba had been linked with a move to Barcelona due to his frosty relationship with Mourinho, who dropped the French World Cup winner on numerous occasions last season.

However, Mourinho insisted on the eve of the season’s curtain raiser that Pogba is happy at Old Trafford and, despite just returning to training on Monday after his exertions in helping Les Bleus win a second World Cup, Pogba has been handed the armband.

Mourinho has clashed with the United hierarchy in pre-season over their failure to sign another centre-back with the Portuguese predicting a season of gloom for not strengthening his squad.
