Mourinho reveals why he did not use Anthony Martial against Leicester City

Goals from Paul Pogba and Luke Shaw ensured victory over a team which Mourinho pointed out had "invested more than us". "He worked amazingly well Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, and he's one of the players that I have to speak to see how, physically and mentally, he feels", the tactician said.

Pogba was surprisingly named as a starter by Jose Mourinho, having only returned to training last week.

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

The Guardian reports that Manchester United were not willing to go ahead with some of Jose Mourinho's targets in the summer as they did not believe the players were right for the team. "I think we are more head coaches than managers", he said.

Things were a lot more even for the rest of the match but I also think Mourinho will be happy with the way his side managed the game when Leicester were posing a threat. However, Mourinho's time in charge of the club has been filled with feuding with his players, ownership and the media.

That [the World Cup] is in the past, it is part of history. I need more changes but I couldn't. Following a strong World Cup, the Red Devils will lean on Paul Pogba to display his incredible talent. We planned to go to Old Trafford early yesterday to try to get Pogba's autograph before the players went off to their hotel, but had a delay with the vehicle hire at Manchester Airport and missed the team.

Sources have told ESPN FC that Barcelona and Juventus are both interested in signing the midfielder after Mourinho claimed the £89 million man had played well for France during the World Cup because he was fully focused on his football.

"I want to give back to them and always try my best to be thankful to the fans and to my team-mates". I was fantastic spirit, and there were periods of very good football.

He added: "It was not a hard decision [to start Pogba], the decision was down to him".

Pogba's early penalty was followed by Luke Shaw - a player who had endured a testy relationship with Mourinho - scoring his first goal for the club, meaning Jamie Vardy's stoppage-time effort was little more than a consolation.

"He had the first three or four days of training and first couple of matches where he played 40 or 50 minutes".
