Paul Pogba's Latest Comments Hint At Troubled Relationship With Mourinho

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

"He got the captaincy and played very well, but Mourinho will have noticed the line and there will always be a response, because there always is".

Pogba only returned to training at the start of the week after helping France win the tournament but he was thrust into the starting line-up on Friday and given the captain's armband, with his penalty setting up United's 2-1 win over Leicester.

Still, his relationship with Mourinho - who dropped the player on more than one occasion last season, including for a Champions League knockout tie against Sevilla - led to Pogba being questioned over whether he is happy at United.

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

Idris Elba offers cheeky tweets amid latest James Bond rumors
Daniel Craig still has one final Bond film, the yet-untitled 25th in the series, which is expected to begin filming late in 2018. Elba has in the past tended to dismiss the Bond rumours, insisting he is "too old" to take on the role.


Mourinho has been responsible for some of that, including big-money deals for the likes of Paul Pogba and Romelu Lukaku, but he is considered to be making amends for his predecessor. "There are things I can not say otherwise I will get fined".

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.

As per one of the latest reports by The Guardian, Manchester United are set to appoint a Director of Football for the first time, once the club completes its restructuring and expansion process.

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.

The Frenchman believes that there is no point doing a job if you are not enjoying it and he was asked whether he is currently happy and comfortable right now.

"And wearing this, it's even more because of the past, because of the players that played here, the people that have been wearing this". I am the same, it's the same Paul Pogba.

"Manchester never showed any formal interest, they never made me an offer at all", Fabinho told Sky Sports.
