Gary Neville reacts to Paul Pogba's 'weird' penalty

Share

"I have always been talking to the team-mates".

"I know that Paul doesn't resist for 90, the same with Fred".

Paul Pogba claims Manchester United had no designated penalty taker against Leicester City and says he is prepared to let Alexis Sanchez take the club's next one after winning an argument with the Chilean.

The path to the three points began with a Paul Pogba penalty kick just two minutes in after a hand ball, and the World Cup victor with France made no mistake, finishing calmly into the far post. "Even if the manager puts down the names, it's about how we feel".

"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".

It was telling that he made Pogba his skipper in the absence of the injured Antonio Valencia, after all the speculation that the France midfielder is unhappy and wants to leave. On top of his transfer troubles, Mourinho had a host of injuries and players lacking match sharpness after the World Cup to contend with. I needed more changes, but I couldn't so it was not easy to manage the game from the touchline point of view. 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 auto hire at Manchester Airport and missed the team. I know it's a great cup, it will stay in my mind, but I want to win all the trophies.

Although some were surprised to see Pogba in action again so soon after his post-World Cup break, Mourinho insisted it was not a hard decision to play him because Pogba said he was ready.

We should start the Premier League with a win and we did today. "I doubt he'll be going anywhere this season".

Barca's new signing has revealed that the Catalan giants have always been his team of choice on the playstation as he grew up dreaming of playing for the Camp Nou club.

Vardy pulled a goal back for Leicester in stoppage time to give them some reward for a good performance against last season's runners-up.

Jose Mourinho showed his disappointment over the club's transfer activity this summer again as he said he should be described as Manchester United's "head coach" rather than manager.

Despite having their own well-formulated attacks, Mourinho's side often found themselves on the back foot and defending for long bouts of the game.Throughout the seasons, we have become used to an overtly attacking Manchester United side with a strong line of defence.
