Paul Pogba: 'if you're not happy, you can not give your best'

Paul Pogba: 'if you're not happy, you can not give your best'

These comments are odd to say the least after Pogba put in an impressive performance and bagged Manchester United's opening goal of the Premier League season as they beat Leicester 2-1 on Friday. "That's all I say". "I came in the academy, I grew up, I played for the first team".

Pogba was also handed the captain's armband with Antonio Valencia still missing with a calf injury.

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

"I prepared myself mentally and physically for everything that lies ahead".

Is there a rift between Paul Pogba and Jose Mourinho? They [Leicester] spent more money than us, so in the Premier League we must get used to teams with players of the same quality that we have.

"We have big coaching staffs and I think we are more the head coach than the manager".

Mourinho had implied Pogba - whose agent Mini Raiola has reportedly been talking with Barcelona - had flourished under Didier Deschamps at the World Cup because he could not be distracted by his entourage or by his commercial obligations.

The France World Cup victor, who moved to Old Trafford in 2016 in a US$114 million (RM465.5 million) transfer deal, has been linked with another big-money move, to Barcelona, following a series of apparent fallouts with United manager Jose Mourinho.

And Savage says the Reds will push City this season, however, they're not good enough to win their first Premier League title just yet.

Danny Murphy has urged Jose Mourinho to give Victor Lindelof a sustained run in the Manchester United team.

Sharing a picture of his goal celebration on both Twitter and Instagram, he wrote: "I'll always give my best to the fans and my teammates no matter what's going on".

Pogba said "everybody was on the same page" in the France dressing room, from manager Didier Deschamps to the staff and players.

Topping the table at the end of November could also prove tricky as they are set to take on Everton a week after their trip to Chelsea and arch-rivals Manchester City at the Etihad Stadium on November 11. For me, it was a dream come true.

This put them in a comfortable position throughout the rest of the match, and even more so when Luke Shaw tapped home in an unorthodox manner in the second half.
