Jose Mourinho aims swipe at Anthony Martial while defending Paul Pogba

Paul Pogba Jose Mourinho

"I can not demand more from him".

"I know some United fans want a more expansive attacking game and I can understand their frustrations, but the result is the most important thing, especially at the start of the season, and you need to be tactically clever".

Matic also missed the win over the Foxes after undergoing surgery last month having picked up an abdominal injury while representing his country in Russian Federation this summer and the Brighton game also comes too soon for him. They have a great coach, Chris, good players, good team, handsome stadium but hard to play.

Mourinho was then asked a follow up question, specifically about Pogba's highly scrutinized comments, and the manager essentially repeated his statements, adding that he doesn't want to see any untruthful stories printed about his £89m man.

What this meant is that Mourinho reacted in a positive manner regarding his main player. "To play for the team and I couldn't be happier than what I am".

"I don't care", said Mourinho.

And the United manager refused to comment about Pogba's post-match outburst.

"He never had a fight with me, we never had a hard change of words, everything is respected".

"You have to ask Paul", said Mourinho.

"You have to ask him".

That's an extremely interesting reveal there- as much as Mourinho has made negative remarks about Pogba, and Luke Shaw over the past couple of years, only Martial has actually been fined. I'm not going to ask him.

After a strong showing in the World Cup and United's opening fixture, Pogba has set a standard which Mourinho claims he is confident the midfielder will maintain - although he will have no problem if not. I repeat: I want him to work the way he is doing and play the way he is doing and that's the only thing that matters'.

"He was everywhere on the pitch, passed it well, took the penalty with confidence - considering it was the first game, it was very encouraging". "If his objective is to play for the team, for the fans, if this is the objective, he has the right for a bad match".

Since returning to United, Pogba has won the Europa League and League Cup, and was one of the stars at this summer's World Cup, helping France to glory in Russian Federation.
