Paul Pogba makes revelations about relationship with Jose Mourinho

And he again talked about United's failure to spend on new players after adding Fred, Diogo Dalot, and backup goalkeeper Lee Grant earlier in the summer window.

Leicester and England forward Jamie Vardy reduced the arrears toward the end of the match, but Manchester United held on to claim their first win of the season.

The second goal ensured United had three points in their kitty. Eric Bailly did superbly to get back to deny Iheanacho and substitute Vardy bundled Shaw off the ball to send in a cross that Gray would have flicked home had De Gea reacted well. Leicester got off to a poor start to the season but were able to climb the table throughout the season, finishing ninth. The remarks of the two players are followed by Twitter reactions to the match.

Read the key comments from the boss as he spoke to Sky Sports as well as reporters in his press conference.... 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 know it's a great cup, it will stay in my mind, but I want to win all the trophies. I needed more changes, but I couldn't so it was not easy to manage the game from the touchline point of view. That [the World Cup] is in the past, it is part of history.

Pogba also reinstated that his focus is now completely on the Premier League.

"I always give my best for the fans, for the team mates. and for the people that trust me".

"We don't really have one", said the Frenchman when asked the question. I wanted to play Martial for [Juan] Mata or Alexis [Sanchez] but I can't. "We just want to go up and that's it".

Pogba eventually dispatched the spot kick in the opening minutes of United's Premier League clash with Leicester but teammate Alexis Sanchez clearly felt like he should have been given the opportunity.

The message was in the aftermath of the transfer news about his suspected move to Barcelona.

"In the periods Leicester were stronger we played as a team and coped well". I came in the academy, I grew up. "It's the best feeling I have had in my career". "(Picking him) was not hard, the decision belonged to him".

Neville reckons Sanchez reacted the way he did because he was actually the penalty taker during pre-season while Pogba wasn't there and expected to resume that role.

"I chose to take it, I was one of the names and in the next game, I can leave it for Alexis next time, it's not a problem".

"It's my style of taking penalties, I've always done it", he said.

But this is the last time I speak about it. For me, it was a dream come true.
