They might not have set the world alight, but Manchester United's 2-1 win over Leicester on Friday night was still a significant result and performance. During United's pre-season tour to America, Mourinho ran through a list of players who could wear the armband if Valencia did not play. "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.
Despite aiming his ire at the United board, Mourinho did have some positive things to say about Paul Pogba, who was captain for the night, scored and put in a man-of-the-match performance after a preseason spanning four days and returning to Carrington on Monday. United finished second last season behind their rivals Manchester City. Pogba responded with a strong all-round performance, as well as scoring the opening goal after what I have to say was a very odd run-up for his penalty.
He also said he'd moved past the excitement of the summer, adding: "Winning the World Cup is in the past".
Mourinho said after the game that his side showed glimpses of what they are capable of, and they certainly made an impressive start.
Pogba was not the only United player to impress me.

"I don't remember in my career to be in so much in trouble to make my changes because I wanted to make five or six and I could only make three".
He got that from his team's display at Old Trafford, from the way they started so well to how they saw the game out at the end.
"It will be a hard season for everybody, not just for us".
Shaw's first touch from a Sanchez cross took a fortuitous bounce around Leicester's Ricardo Pereira, and the former Southampton defender pounced and fired a shot past Kasper Schmeichel to score.
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 am happy with the squad and the transfer window.
"I'm going to enjoy this season".
