Why Pogba tight-lipped over United situation

Alexis Sanchez tried to take the spot-kick off Paul Pogba

United would eventually win the game 2-1 and though the victory was deserved, the performance was unconvincing.

However, when it comes to being a leader in the United team, Pogba says he does not need the armband in order to assume such responsibilities.

Although he hasn't said anything to further inspire more exit talk, he hasn't done anything to make it go away either.

"What do you mean being the real Pogba?" he asked. "You have to know one thing - a player that gets chosen and is happy, you always feel more comfortable than when he's not happy".

In comments widely regarded as reflecting continuing problems with his relationship with the United boss, he wrote: "I'll always give my best for the fans and my team mates, no matter what's going on".

After captaining United to an opening-day win over Leicester, Pogba admitted that he has had to bite his tongue when discussing his situation or risk being fined.

Mourinho also added that the club had to play against a team that spent more than United in the transfer window, while also claiming that other teams are bringing quality players into their side.

Mourinho surprised many fans and pundits by starting the French World Cup victor when many felt he would be left out having not completed a proper pre-season.

"I don't think there's any question that a player would say that under Fergie because you'd have been finished".

Speaking to Sky Sports after the game, he explained: 'I think football is changing, and probably football managers should be called now more head coaches.

Although the Red Devils made three signings - midfielder Fred, young full-back Diogo Dalot and backup goalkeeper Lee Grant - Jose Mourinho was left frustrated by the failure to land a new centre-back. "We have to wait until the end of November to understand if we can fight for the title".

"It's not too much at £50million because ultimately you've just got to get the players in".

"Forget the name, the history, the shirt, every match is hard". "For sure they are going to have a very good season".
