World Cup victor Paul Pogba's 3rd-minute penalty and a late goal from Luke Shaw gave Manchester United a 2-1 win over Leicester City at Old Trafford in the opening game of the Premier League season on Friday.
The midfielder, a World Cup victor with France, has been the subject of speculation in recent days concerning both a possible transfer to Barcelona and his relationship with manager Jose Mourinho.
In response, Pogba told PA: "If you're not happy, you can not give your best".
United would eventually win the game 2-1 and though the victory was deserved, the performance was unconvincing. "I am going to try my best to keep playing and help the team as much as I can and hopefully we will see that this season". He clearly meant to motivate Pogba and make him focused for United as he was with France.
"I had only two options, Scott [McTominay] or Paul, but if I play Scott I play two two kids and a new player, so I asked Paul and he put himself available for the team and he was very, very good for us".
Speaking of confidence, the 25-year-old was under severe scrutiny from pundits and fans last season and this led to multiple under-par performances.
Pogba was also handed the captain's armband with Antonio Valencia still missing with a calf injury.
This was backed up by the fact Pogba was made captain for the match last night.
He said: "I always give my best for the fans, for the teammates and for the people that trust me".

The crowd went wild as players surrounded the World Cup victor, but one fan, who was named after the great George Best was celebrating more than most. For me, it was a dream come true.
"If he upsets too many players because of his way, then ultimately he will lose his job like he did".
