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". "I think football is changing and probably football managers should be called head coaches".
We have big and multi-functional coaching staffs, and I think we are more the head coach than the manager.
It's fair to say that decision paid off for Mourinho as it was the midfielder who scored United's first goal of the game and season.
'I find myself in the beginning of the Premier League with the market closed in the situation I thought I was not going to be in, ' said Mourinho. "We have to wait until the end of November to understand if we can fight for the title".

And when Amartey was substituted, it didn't get much better - Luke Shaw completely lost Rachid Ghezzal for his goal in the 83rd minute, while Ricardo Pereira was ineffective right-wing and only started to look like a Premier League player when switched to right-back.
"We play against a team that invest more than us".
"I won't be full from a World Cup", Pogba told Sky Sports following the game. Paul, he was fantastic his contribution was wonderful, but the fuel was disappearing every minute so we were in trouble and I needed Fellaini and McTominay to give me that balance in midfield. "Every team is a good team, forget the name, forget the history, forget the shirt".
Mourinho left no doubt as to how much he valued Pogba's efforts on the night, adding: "Paul was fantastic - his contribution was incredible".More news: Trump OKs stiffer tariffs on Turkish metals as lira plummets
"In my opinion it would be a good performance but with the circumstances I think very good because pre-season was very hard and we needed this fantastic spirit by the players to manage this performance and this result".
Luke Shaw sealed the points seven minutes from time before Jamie Vardy headed home a consolation for the visitors.

Mourinho was also keen to lavish praise on Shaw and Eric Bailly, who were left out of the United side time and again in the second half of last season.
"He arrived Monday, happy, proud, a desire to work", said Mourinho.
