I fear being fined if I speak out, Pogba says

When asked about Paul Pogba, the president said: "I won't talk about names".

United made a winning start to their 2018-19 campaign on the opening weekend of Premier League action, with Leicester seen off 2-1 at Old Trafford.

Pogba, who was dropped by Mourinho for both legs of the Champions League last-16 loss to Sevilla last term, said there were differences between playing for France and United.

Manchester United sent shockwaves around the football community earlier this week with the announcement that, for the first-time in their 140 year history, there would be an appointment of a Director Of Football at Old Trafford.

But after Pogba produced a class performance whilst wearing the captain's armband just weeks after leading his country to World Cup glory, it seemed as though everything was happy again.

"It hasn't gone well, but you've got to remember Jose Mourinho has spent a lot of money, but the Louis van Gaal signings I have to say were really poor.

Michael Carrick was also captain", Pogba said.

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.

"His passing was good, he was heading balls out of the box and his commitment to the cause could not be questioned, so I hope he finds a way to fix any damage there might be in his relationship with Mourinho and focuses on giving his all to United". I have played for the Academy, I have played for the first team and it was a dream come true.

Bartomeu suggested that more players will leave the club before the window closed but didn't rule out incomings either.

Despite their undisputed millions in the bank, Manchester United have been one of the more traditional clubs, with the manager tending to pick the players that he wants to sign.

He even went so far as to say that his job is more as a coach than a manager, and that this transition can be generalized to football at large.
