Ibrahimovic gives Mourinho first trophy as Man United beat Leicester City 2 - 1 to win the 2016 community sheild
Zlatan Ibrahimovic's winner ensured that Jose Mourinho's reign at Manchester United got off to a winning start as the FA Cup holders beat champions Leicester City 2-1 in England's Community Shield season curtain-raiser at Wembley on Sunday.
Jamie Vardy had earlier equalised after capitalising on a hideous lapse from Marouane Fellaini following Jesse Lingard's superb solo opener in the 31st minute.
Another new signing, Eric Bailly, made an encouraging start, although he was regularly tested by Vardy, who displayed the same tenacity and directness that characterised his excellent performances last term.
Leicester threatened on the break, and Vardy's fine interplay with Shinji Okazaki resulted in the latter sending a lofted shot just wide of David De Gea's goal in the 18th minute.
Okazaki was denied by the crossbar a minute later when he met Marc Albrighton's corner with a powerful header as the champions served a warning of their offensive threat.
However, it was Lingard who opened the scoring after the half-hour mark.
The forward, whose sublime volley settled the FA Cup final against Crystal Palace in May, picked the ball up inside the Leicester half and slalomed past a quartet of attempted blocks before firing a low shot beyond Schmeichel.
