Paul Pogba: 'I can not say how I feel at Manchester United'

Paul Pogba: 'I can not say how I feel at Manchester United'

Meanwhile, NAIJ.com had earlier reported Paul Pogba after match comments after Manchester United's 2-1 win over Leicester City suggests he is unhappy.

The 25-year-old was largely praised for his performances during France's World Cup-winning campaign in Russian Federation, scoring in the final against Croatia.

Mourinho left no doubt as to how much he valued Pogba's efforts on the night, adding: "Paul was fantastic - his contribution was incredible".

"Last season's 81 points will take some beating, but if Jose Mourinho gets the best out of Paul Pogba, you can't take them lightly".

Jose Mourinho enters his third season in charge of United looking to capture the league title.

"After that, we needed to be more clinical to finish our good moves and we could have had another result". "Paul was fantastic. His contribution was wonderful".

"I don't remember in my career to be in so much in trouble to make my changes because I wanted to make five or six and I could only make three". I am the same, it's the same Paul Pogba.

Mourinho also confirmed Pogba had his blessing to take the penalty after what appeared to be a disagreement with Alexis Sanchez.

Pogba's penalty two minutes was, what I guess you can say, weird?




"I am [also] very pleased for Luke", Mourinho said.

Mourinho was particularly annoyed to miss out on a series of centre-back targets, including Leicester's Harry Maguire who shone for England in Russian Federation.

"It's not having just the armband", Pogba said of his view on leadership.

"For us, it will be a hard season because I had my plans, and I had my plans for many months, and I started the Premier League season without a situation I thought was possible".

After the United goal though it was mostly one-way traffic for the visiting side, with David De Gea repeatedly called into action including a miraculous save on a James Maddison shot that should have drawn Leicester level.

Leicester came close to an equalizer though when substitute Jamie Vardy robbed Shaw and found Demarai Gray whose flick forced another good save out of De Gea.

The Portuguese manager has previously publicly criticised Shaw's performance for United too.

Speaking at his post-match news conference, Mourinho said: "His game was very complete".
