Cryptic captain Pogba: 'There are things I can not say'

Daniel Amartey sets infamous record on opening Premier League day

Daniel Amartey sets infamous record on opening Premier League day

However, United saw out the rest of second-half stoppage time to start the season with three points and maintain Mourinho's unbeaten record in Premier League openers with nine wins and one draw over 10 matches.

Barcelona could still make a move to sign Pogba before the August 31st transfer deadline in Spain and even if these quotes are the clearest indication yet that the player is not happy working with Mourinho, it is hard to imagine Old Trafford chiefs selling one of their star men this month.

Pogba's mentality has been questioned by Mourinho and the midfielder was dropped last season for the Champions League tie against Sevilla.

United fans purred at the presence of Pereira, Fred and Paul Pogba playing together in midfield and Andreas reserved some kind words for our World Cup victor, who played over an hour after less than a week of training.

Yes, they went ahead inside the first three minutes through Paul Pogba's penalty, but what was important was the way they went after Leicester right from the off. I am still enjoying playing football, I still love football and I still give my best with the team, for the team.

Pogba was pushed on his response and said that "if you're not happy, you can not give your best" when asked about what represents happiness and comfort for him.

That's a clear indication his relationship with Mourinho has affected his happiness at the club and his ability to turn in the kind of dominant display he gave against Leicester.

"[United] is a different team, obviously".

Asked if he was happy and comfortable, Pogba replied: 'There are things I can not say, otherwise I will get fined'.

He said: "I always give my best for the fans, for the teammates and for the people that trust me".

"We have to wait for end of November, beginning of December to understand how things are going and if we can fight for the title".

Their first thought when they got the ball was always to get it forward and they were trying to get their wide players high up the pitch, which is the United way. Don't get me wrong, Mourinho does love to remind the opposition whenever his side scores, but his celebration following Shaw's goal was something else.
