Oozing confidence following his victory at the World Cup and as Manchester United's new captain, Pogba attempted to lead from the front by taking the shot.Cool as you like it, the United skipper toyed with Schmeichel in his run-up before placing the ball in the Leicester keeper's left side corner.

Paul Pogba says he will not reveal how he feels about his situation at Manchester United for fear of being punished by the club.

Having returned from France's triumph in Russian Federation last month to intense media speculation about his future under United manager Mourinho, the 25-year-old Pogba was named skipper of a team that included debutant Fred. After the game, Mourinho, missing several midfield options due to injury, praised Pogba for his willingness to start the game after only recently returning from his post-World Cup break.

Sharing a picture of his goal celebration on both Twitter and Instagram, he wrote: "I'll always give my best to the fans and my teammates no matter what's going on".

Mourinho said after the 2-1 win over Leicester that managers should be called "head coaches" in reference to their nightmare trying to sign players this summer.

MANCHESTER - Paul Pogba eschewed the opportunity to end talk he is unsettled at Manchester United by insisting: "there are things that I can not say, otherwise I will get fined".

"I had only two options, Scott [McTominay] or Paul, but if I play Scott I play two two kids and a new player, so I asked Paul and he put himself available for the team and he was very, very good for us".

But for all that could have been this summer, Mourinho certainly has the talent at his disposal to make this a successful season, especially if Pogba can replicate Friday night's display.

"It's not having just the armband", Pogba said of his view on leadership. "I love the club", said the 25-year-old.

"I ran the London marathon in April past and it fell on the same weekend as the FA Cup Semi Final against Spurs, so I took him there and that was his first game".

"I always love the club", he said.
