HOW IT’S DONE

Never go full Zaza, surely?

It didn’t take long for Jose Mourinho to get over his foul pre-season mood.

Man United were awarded a penalty against Leicester in the just the second minute at Old Trafford in the Premier League’s curtain-raiser.

And the hosts got their campaign off to the perfect start through captain on the night, Paul Pogba.

The World Cup winner calmly placed his spot-kick into the top right-hand corner after a run-up reminiscent of Simone Zaza’s infamous Euro 2016 howler.

All fans remember the Italian’s unintentionally hilarious penalty against Germany in two years ago; a prancing, tension-building approach before a wild slash that propelled the ball way over the bar.

Pogba mimicked the run-up, with a full seven seconds passing between him setting off and the strike…

Little steps…

That’s how it’s done, Simone.

Just what the doctored order after those Barcelona rumours, eh?
