According to The Guardian, the Man United chiefs - who had previously put their hand in the pocket for Jose Mourinho - opted not to back the manager on this occasion. Sir Alex Ferguson hates him because he was the reason behind Pogba's departure to Juventus in 2012.

Paul Pogba struck the first goal of the new Premier League season from the penalty spot - but his stuttering run-up left Gary Neville nervous.

"There was never a need to change what Man United do - the formula is there and there was never a need of a new philosophy", the 43-year-old told Malay Mail at Resorts World Genting last month.

'I think it will be a hard season for everybody, not just for us.

Chelsea let the Serbian defensive midfielder leave for £35m last summer - and he enjoyed a remarkably consistent debut season at Old Trafford.

Brazil worldwide Fred, highly-rated but raw full-back Diogo Dalot and third-choice goalkeeper Lee Grant all arrived at United by early July, but nobody followed despite Mourinho's explicit desire to bring in two more players.

Despite being critical of the club, Scholes is hoping the Red Devils get their campaign off to a ideal start when they face Leicester City at 3am tomorrow.

"I am not confident, and the market closes today, so it's time, at least for me, to stop thinking about the market because the market will be closed".
