The Brazilian had a promising debut against Leicester on Friday

Jamie Vardy of Leicester City celebrates with Kelechi Iheanacho of Leicester City after he scored their second goal during the Premier League match between Manchester United and Leicester City at Old Trafford on August 10, 2018 in Manchester, United Kingdom.

Pogba followed up that television interview with an Instagram post that was liked by Manchester United's official account and created plenty of discussion, as he thanked his team-mates and he fans, notably leaving Mourinho and his coaching staff out of his message.

The World Cup victor seemed to restore the faith put in him by Mourinho with his performance on the night, with a penalty in the 2-1 win the icing on the cake for the midfielder, who left the field to a standing ovation in the 84th minute.

Speaking to journalists after his Man of the Match display on Friday, Pogba said the following when asked about captaining United and being committed to the cause.

"We've learnt from the past that, if he takes too many players on like he did at Chelsea and Real Madrid, then there's only one thing that will happen".

If you're not happy, you can not give your best. That's all I say. It's the same Paul Pogba but it's a different team, obviously. "There are things I can not say otherwise I will get fined".

Mourinho, who has cut a frustrated and grumpy figure during a transfer window in which United failed to sign any of his centre-back targets, hailed Pereira's "phenomenal" performance after United won their first game of the season.

"I still enjoying playing football but like I said, when you are comfortable or confident and are good in the head, it's going to be easier".

"We knew it was going to be hard because some of us, including myself, didn't have any pre-season games".

"I always give my best for the fans, for the team mates. and for the people that trust me".

"Every time you see him now he's frowning, he's angry, he wants to row with everyone", the Newcastle legend said on the BBC show.

The opening day of a new Premier League season is always bound to produce nerves.
