Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba has insisted that he is hungry for more trophies after helping his side to a 2-1 win over Leicester City.

The 25-year-old, surprisingly named in Jose Mourinho‘s starting lineup on Friday evening, scored an early penalty for the Red Devils as they kicked off their Premier League campaign with a narrow victory.

Pogba only returned to training earlier this week, having starred for France in their triumphant World Cup campaign, but the captain for the night was happy to play a part and now hopes to add more silverware to his collection.

“We should start the Premier League with a win and we did,” he told Sky Sports News. “I didn’t have any pre-season games; I came back on Monday so it was very hard for the legs. The performance was OK, but we want to go up.

“Winning the World Cup is in the past. I like challenges, I want to progress and win more trophies. The World Cup will stay in my mind, but I want to win all the trophies. I haven’t won the Premier League, I haven’t won the Champions League, I haven’t won the European Championships so there are more to win.”

Luke Shaw was also on target for United seven minutes from the end, before Jamie Vardy pulled one back in added time.
