4:37 Jose Mourinho says he is relishing the chance to work with his current squad

Paul Pogba revealed that Manchester United do not have a designated penalty-taker, following an on-pitch discussion with Alexis Sanchez in their Premier League-opening 2-1 win over Leicester City on Friday.

Pogba is, according to Mourinho, a fine example to his team-mates in the United dressing room, but Antonio Valencia remains the club captain.

It lead the Portuguese to vent his feelings after the final whistle at Old Trafford and reiterate his warning for the new season.

The two-time Champions League victor added: "At this point I'd just say we need to win".

Former Arsenal playmaker Nicholas predicted that Mourinho wouldn't last the season at Manchester United after a hard summer.

"Mourinho has all the resources available to him to make this team a winning team again and to start playing better football, but I still think they've got a long way more to go".

Takeaways From the Pence 'Space Force' Sales Pitch
The secretary will oversee a unified combat command that will coordinate activities and establish combat doctrines for space. Anyway, we'll get more details on what the Space Force actually entails in coming days.

A number of clubs, such as Arsenal, have begun to use the title "head coach" rather than the traditional "manager" to reflect the changed structures with increased roles for Directors of Football, heads of recruitment and chief executives. That's the way I think football is going. We played very well, the performance was OK. "We must get used to teams who have players of the same quality that we have", he told Sky Sports. "Forget the name, the history, the shirt, every match is hard".

The midfielder, a World Cup victor with France, has been the subject of speculation in recent days concerning both a possible transfer to Barcelona and his relationship with manager Jose Mourinho.

He lasted 84 minutes before being replaced by Marouane Fellaini, with Mourinho describing his captain as a "monster".

Mourinho left no doubt as to how much he valued Pogba's efforts on the night, adding: "Paul was fantastic - his contribution was wonderful". We thought a maximum 60 minutes but he managed 80'.

I know they had a lapse right at the end when Jamie Vardy pulled a goal back for the Foxes but, otherwise, they had the kind of focus they needed.
