Pogba tight-lipped over United situation for fear of being fined

Man Utd news Jose Mourinho

Jose Mourinho is understood to have been bemused at Paul Pogba's strong suggestion that all was not well between him and his manager on Friday night at Old Trafford, with the player having voiced no complaints personally after his return to the club that week.

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. That's all I say. "For me, it's a dream come true", Pogba said.

Now Sunday World columnist McGrath has suggested Mourinho should change his tone when talking about Pogba in public, as he believes the £89m midfielder could be a talisman for United this season.

Following the Leicester win, Mourinho again praised Pogba, calling him "a monster" for completing 80 minuted despite a short preseason, but there still appears to be resentment on Pogba's end as to how he is being treated by his manager.

"There are things I can not say otherwise I will get fined".




Pogba said "everybody was on the same page" in the France dressing room, from Deschamps to the staff and players - that has not necessarily been the case at United with several players at different times singled out for public criticism by Mourinho.

Jamie Jackson's story in the Guardian claims that the United board are now ready to restructure behind the scenes, and want to appoint a figure that can give the club continuity in the facing of ever-shortening managerial reigns.

When asked after the game whether he was happy at the club, Pogba said, in remarks published on Sunday, that "There are things I can not say, otherwise I will get fined".

"I still enjoying playing football but like I said, when you are comfortable or confident and are good in the head, it's going to be easier".

"We'll just have to see, it's a bit early at the moment to see how that plays or whether he does become more attacking or if he's more defensive".
