I fear being fined if I speak out, says Pogba

  • Man Utd news Jose Mourinho Ed Woodward Yerry Mina

Seeing his side pick up an important 2-1 opening day win against an impressive Leicester City side, Mourinho was quick to praise everyone from Paul Pogba to Luke Shaw; congratulating them on giving what they could to the cause, for as long as they could.

Yet Pogba has now stirred the rumour mill over his future once again, with comments to the media that suggest his discontent under Mourinho's leadership will not evaporate any time soon.

Despite aiming his ire at the United board, Mourinho did have some positive things to say about Paul Pogba, who was captain for the night, scored and put in a man-of-the-match performance after a preseason spanning four days and returning to Carrington on Monday.

He added: "We play against a team that invest more than us". Pogba responded with a strong all-round performance, as well as scoring the opening goal after what I have to say was a very unusual run-up for his penalty.

"What do you mean being the real Pogba?" he asked. The path to the three points began with a Paul Pogba penalty kick just two minutes in after a hand ball, and the World Cup victor with France made no mistake, finishing calmly into the far post.

"It's a different team, obviously".

"It was very good to go out there, to feel the fans supporting us and to play at home in Old Trafford is always good", he told MUTV".


"If you're doing it for money, there's a point about doing things for money, but there's a point about doing things because you love it".

And afterwards the new world champion vowed to always work hard "for the people that trust me".

"I am someone who is not (in) a role that I give to myself". Just try to help the team as much as possible, like they helped me too.

That's not surprising, because I know from experience that everyone is a bit rusty for the first game back.

After a week in which Pogba has been linked with a move away from Old Trafford, with Barcelona's interest piqued by the Frenchman's frosty relationship with Mourinho after he was repeatedly dropped last season, the Portuguese showed his faith in the midfielder by surprisingly handing him the armband. It's going to be easier and it makes the team go higher.

De Gea made a huge stop in the first half on James Maddison, denying the young player in the box with this save.

He is the best left-back at the club when he is fit and flying so I am glad he has got his goal, because it should take a bit of pressure off him.
