Manchester United Unveil Stunning New Dressing Room Before Premier League Opener

Man Utd transfer news Jose Mourinho

Manchester United and Leicester City faced off in the opening game of the new Premier League season at Old Trafford.

Three injury tables take centre position in the middle of the dressing room with the players' allocated positions all set to face manager Jose Mourinho's monitor, from where the Portuguese coach will be most likely bark his instructions as he strives to gain Manchester United's first title in six seasons.

Just 26 days after lifting the World Cup with France, the 25-year-old scored an early penalty and dominated the midfield before being replaced after 84 minutes.

Yet the fall-out from a disappointing transfer window that saw United fail to sign the central defender Mourinho was demanding was still the subject of debate as he was asked about the club's lack of summer spending.

Martin Fisher: Jose Mourinho rarely smiled last season and his expression hasn't changed after a summer of frustration.

"Pogba was a monster", said Mourinho.

"Fred is a very good player, he will help us".


'But he was ready and practised lots of penalties during the World Cup'. "Paul was fantastic. His contribution was incredible. We were in trouble", added Mourinho.

The biggest news is World Cup victor Paul Pogba being named as captain; whether this is a permanent decision remains to be seen. I think one defensive mistake and probably the linesman could help him and give a free-kick against Leicester. I needed more changes, but I couldn't so it was not easy to manage the game from the touchline point of view.

Fosu-Mensah will be hoping for regular game-time at Craven Cottage, whilst Mourinho will hope that his loan won't come back to haunt United.

Paul Pogba has posted a cryptic message on social media after helping Manchester United to a 2-1 win over Leicester saying he will always give his best "no matter what is going on".

'For us, it will be a hard season because I had my plans for many months. You have to try your best to get points and even with the difficulties that we had with our pre-season, now I don't think is the time to be speaking about that.

Read the key comments from the boss as he spoke to Sky Sports as well as reporters in his press conference....

Although he waned towards the end of the game, Pogba took his penalty very well early on to put United 1-0 up and played a number of risky passes into United's forwards as the Red Devils looked to counter-attack in the second half.
