While it may have been surprising to see Manchester United sign just one first-team player this summer, it was also surprising to see them keep hold of one player in particular - Anthony Martial. I told them to give everything they had.
"A match where I needed six changes not three", Mourinho said after the match.
The French forward was left out of France's World Cup squad prior to their successful campaign in Russian Federation, a decision which came as no surprise after a disappointing 2017/18 season, and his pre-season has been blighted with speculation that manager Jose Mourinho is unhappy with him. "I haven't won the Premier League, I haven't won the Champions League, I haven't won the European Championship so there are more to win", he said.
"We don't have a penalty-taker, it's how we feel, and I chose to take it", Pogba told Sky Sports.
"I am very pleased for Luke Shaw. We want to go up". "I like challenges, I want to progress and win more trophies".
Manchester United kick off the 2018-19 Premier League season as Leicester City travel to Old Trafford tonight.
Pogba's future has been the subject of endless speculation in recent weeks but the Frenchman hit back in style by making United history against Leicester on Friday evening.

Barcelona wanted 20 million euros for him but nobody was willing to put it on the table. This is a great opportunity for me and I am looking forward to competing here.
"It's the best feeling I have had in my career".
However, a move did not materialise and Mourinho must now work with the same central defensive setup as he did last season.
He is the best left-back at the club when he is fit and flying so I am glad he has got his goal, because it should take a bit of pressure off him.
United would put matters to rest minutes later though, when Shaw's first touch from an Alexis Sanchez cross took a fortuitous bounce and the former Southampton defender pounced and fired a shot past Schmeichel to double his team's lead.
"It was my first goal and that is all that was important, it doesn't matter how I scored", he said. 'I think he deserves respect and people to be very happy about him.
Both sides' top scorers from last season, Romelu Lukaku and Vardy, started on the bench after their World Cup exertions and were introduced for the final quarter.
United need a good result to lift up the mood in camp but Jose knows that Leicester won't be pushovers.
