'I can not say': Pogba drops massive hint at United trouble

Manchester United's transfer woes in pre-season has left Jose Mourinho feeling more like a head coach than a manager as his targets were reportedly vetoed.

Having returned from France's triumph in Russian Federation last month to intense media speculation about his future under United manager Mourinho, the 25-year-old Pogba was named skipper of a team that included debutant Fred.

He said: "I always give my best for the fans, for the teammates and for the people that trust me".

He was then replaced by Rachid Ghezzal in the 63 minute which made him the first player to be substituted in the 2018-19 Premier League season. 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.

Other fans were not so sympathetic.

Craig Burley says Jose Mourinho's post-match comments and Man United's opening win over Leicester were just more of the same to start the season.

But the MDC say the security forces have launched a brutal crackdown on the opposition following the disputed poll. The President-elect is expected to appoint a new Cabinet after his inauguration scheduled for Sunday.

Pogba has been United's skipper before, of course, but this felt different - a symbolic gesture after another peculiar week in the Mourinho era.

United starts the season just like it started the match: perfectly.

Jamie Vardy came off the bench and pulled a goal back in the 92nd minute but United held on for all three points, and with a World Cup under his belt, star midfielder Pogba is targeting more silverware.

"After that, we needed to be more clinical to finish our good moves and we could have had another result".

Nonetheless Mourinho was pleased with his team's display, singling out Pogba and Shaw for particular praise, and the overall spirit. Paul, he was fantastic his contribution was awesome, but the fuel was disappearing every minute so we were in trouble and I needed [Marouane] Fellaini and [Scott] McTominay to give me that balance in midfield. For a moment it looked like Schmeichel would just get his hand behind the ball to deny the French national, but there was no stopping Pogba's stunning shot.With the Reds up by 1, the scoreline for the remainder of the half did not reflect the performance. "He's one of the players that I have to speak to, to see how physically and mentally he feels".

"I won't be full from a World Cup", Pogba told Sky Sports.
