Manchester United beat Leicester 2-1 this evening with Pogba scoring the opening goal.
Mourinho has consistently complained in recent weeks over his lack of backing from the United board and also had a host of injuries and players lacking match sharpness after the World Cup to contend with.
"It's important to win and play well, we played well in periods against a good team that invest more than us. I won eight championships and three Premier Leagues but I keep feeling the second [place] last season was one of my biggest achievements in the game".
At the other end, Andreas Pereira, making his first United appearance since February 2016, looked sharp in midfield alongside Pogba.
"I can't remember the last time I had a break and a long vacation", he told United Review ahead of Friday evening's clash against Leicester City.
Mourinho has also taken aim at Liverpool and Tottenham, saying they "win nothing" but are painted as "serial winners" while his Manchester United get no credit.
"For us, it will be a hard season because I had my plans, and I had my plans for many months, and I started the Premier League season without a situation I thought was possible".
Showing few signs of rust despite only returning to training this week, the World Cup victor, wearing the captain's armband, impressed in possession and without it, leading by example and keeping his cool from the spot.
"I asked Paul and he put himself available for the team and he was very, very good for us", declared Mourinho.
"Martial didn't have a pre-season", said Mourinho, quoted by ESPN. Twice he carded players for silly offenses in the second half, after allowing pretty much everything to go in the first, much to the consternation of both Leicester and United players.
Elsewhere, Everton is hopeful of tying up a deal for Barcelona center-back Yerry Mina, who scored three times for Colombia at the World Cup, and Brazilian winger Bernard. Again, I know the words you want me to say or not to say. I needed more changes, but I couldn't so it was not easy to manage the game from the touchline point of view.
Everton had an eventful deadline day, making no fewer than four big-name signings, including Bernard, Gomes, Kurt Zouma and Mina . Gomes, meanwhile, had struggled to force his way into Barcelona's side on a regular basis last season.
News of the ceremony prompted an immediate response on Twitter, with tweets ranging from "welcome!" to "unfreakingbelievable". It is not infrequently the site of protests, but on Thursday, things were quiet as the first lady's parents came and went.

At the end, I'm pretty sure we have a fantastic football team on the pitch and hopefully I have to make a few decisions. And while Klopp would like that fortune to change he knows there are other factors which are more important.
