Mourinho Wins First Trophy As A United Manager

Jose Mourinho claimed his first piece of silverware at Manchester United as Zlatan Ibrahimovic’s late header earned a 2-1 victory over Leicester City in the Community Shield at Wembley.

Summer signing Ibrahimovic adorned himself to the United faithful with the winner seven minutes from time, as United won the trophy for a record 21st time.

In the traditional season curtain-raiser, Jesse Lingard added to his FA Cup final winning goal with a stunning solo effort on 32 minutes to give United the half-time lead.

  Leicester hit back after the break as Jamie Vardy punished Marouane Fellini’s misplaced backpass to draw the Premier League champions level.

But it was United who had the last word as Ibrahimovic outmuscled Wes Morgan and steered Antonio Valencia’s cross beyond the reach of Kasper Schmeichel.
