Manchester United star in line for surprise start vs Leicester after wowing Jose Mourinho in training

Posted by

Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba looks like he may have worked his way into Jose Mourinho’s starting line up for tonight’s Premier League opener against Leicester City.

The France international has reportedly impressed Mourinho so much in training since his return from his post-World Cup break that he could go straight back into action in the league tonight.

This would certainly be impressive from Pogba, 25, who less than a month ago played a key role in helping the French national side win the World Cup.

The former Juventus man was heavily involved in that tournament, which itself followed a long and gruelling club season for him at Old Trafford last term.

Still, Rob Dawson of ESPN has reported that Pogba could be in line to start against Leicester in what looks a real boost for Mourinho.

The Portuguese tactician must be delighted with how his star midfielder has got on, as he’s not normally known for one to be too easily impressed by any means.

Although Pogba has struggled to look his real self in much of his United career so far, he can come back into this new season full of confidence after playing so well and picking up the World Cup trophy this summer.
