Mourinho's tactics get Man United off to the ideal start

Mourinho's tactics get Man United off to the ideal start

Mourinho cut a gloomy figure throughout pre-season, seemingly frustrated by the club's failure - or disinclination - to secure more of his summer transfer targets.

Goals from Paul Pogba and Luke Shaw ensured victory over a team which Mourinho pointed out had "invested more than us".

"You think of Alderweireld, which to me seemed like a certainty that Manchester United would sign Alderweireld", he said on Sky Sports.

However, the 20-time English champions have been limited to three additions in the summer transfer window to leave Jose Mourinho in a foul mood ahead of the new season.

"Paul was fantastic, his contribution was incredible", Mourinho said after taking his captain off late in the game.

"It's three points, it's what we wanted", said Pogba. "I scored a penalty, I'm very happy and really happy we started with a win".

Pogba, in his first outing since winning the World Cup with France, completed 84 minutes against the Foxes before being replaced by Marouane Fellaini. "We must get used to teams who have players of the same quality that we have. Marcus Rashford was in trouble but he played", said Mourinho.

David MacCoubrey said three gunshots woke him up, and as many as 17 more have been fired between that time and around 8:30 a.m. Fredericton police have confirmed two of their officers are among the four dead after a shooting in New Brunswick's capital.

"I want to give back to them and always try my best to be thankful to the fans and to my team-mates".

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.

"Of course the performance wasn't the best, but it's better to start like this and finish well than start very well and finish bad". "We thought maximum [he could play] 60 minutes, but he managed 80".

But the manager's overriding emotion will be delight after the oft-criticised Shaw directed home his first goal for the club to put the result out of reach, despite substitute Jamie Vardy pulling one back in stoppage-time.

"But he's so confident and he started the game brilliantly", Neville added.

"We know the players, and myself as well, didn't have a lot of training and we played a game". Not just with that [goal] but in 90 minutes he made just one mistake, and it's the kind of mistake where probably the linesman could help him and give a freekick for us and resolve the problem, ' said the Portuguese.
