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.

United fans were thrilled with Mourinho’s decision to name Pogba as captain in Antonio Valencia’s absence.

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