Car Crash Season - Several Manchester United Fans Split After Quiet Deadline Day

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 Friday.

- Leicester City (@LCFC) August 10, 2018There has been a general buzz in the footballing world as fans eagerly awaited the start of the new season following the hugely successful World Cup.

NAIJ.com previously reported that Jose Mourinho has insisted that France worldwide starPaul Pogba is happy at the club despite being linked with a move to Spanish giants Barcelona.

Pogba has at times endured a hard relationship with United boss Mourinho. But Mourinho most certainly is not as the executive refuses to budge when it comes to negotiating fees and ends up leaving the manager without the players he wants. "In the second half I had Andreas Pereira and Fred with a yellow card, Paul was fantastic his contribution was awesome, but the fuel was disappearing. We were in trouble", added Mourinho.

"I don't remember in my career to be in so much in trouble to make my changes because I wanted to make five or six and I could only make three".

Paul Pogba, Hennrikh Mkhitaryan, Romelu Lukaku, Eric Bailley, Victor Lindelof all came in with a view to giving the Portuguese the right platform to win the title.

"I made a decision to take it - I was one of the names - but maybe next time I can leave it to Alexis, it's not a problem".

"I made a choice to try and finish the game", he said. The foxes relentlessly attacked United, with none of their final attempts really challenging De Gea.Finally, one attempt on goal was deflected behind the goal for a Leicester corner in what was surely the last kick of the game.Every Leicester player, including Schmeichel, raced up to the penalty box, ready to fight for the point.

On Thursday, Mourinho seemed to dismiss the chance of United signing anyone in the last knockings and yet reports emerged of enquiries for Jerome Boateng and Diego Godin, amid similar interest in Harry Maguire and Toby Alderweireld.

"I had my plans for many months and I find myself in the beginning of the Premier League, with the market closed, I find myself in a situation which I did not think I was going to be in."
Jose Mourino is a great manager - one of the best in the world over the last 15 years - but you have to back him all the way through and it looks to me at the moment like the board have just retreated a little bit.

"I won't be full from a World Cup".

Vardy almost made a vital contribution as provider when he outmuscled Shaw and picked out Gray in the middle who was denied by another fine save by De Gea.

Mourinho, who has visibly been frustrated in the entire saga still tried to be optimistic about the new league season. "It doesn't matter who you are playing in the Premier League, they are tough", said Moyes.
