I fear being fined if I speak out, Pogba says

  • Man Utd transfer news Harry Maguire

He is anticipating a hard season as a result, and criticised the club's board for failing to deliver on plans he had put in place "for many months".

"And wearing this armband, it's even more [special] because of the past, because of the players that played here, the people that have been wearing this.

I think we are more the head coach than the manager", he said.

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.

"Forget the name, the history, the shirt, every match is hard".

"I think football is changing and probably football managers should be called head coaches. We have to wait until the end of November to understand if we can fight for the title".

"I think it's the last time we speak about it, it's over, finished, the market is closed and no more talk about it."

'I can not say': Pogba drops massive hint at United trouble
He said: "I always give my best for the fans, for the teammates and for the people that trust me". United starts the season just like it started the match: perfectly.

Quite how such sentiments will be received by the United hierarchy remains to be seen.

After being one of the star men in United's 2-1 truimph over Leicester, with Pogba scoring the opener form the penalty spot, he was more expressive after the match.

After captaining United to an opening-day win over Leicester, Pogba admitted that he has had to bite his tongue when discussing his situation or risk being fined. "I love the club", said the 25-year-old. They're all here, they help me, my team-mates, obviously it makes me want to give them love and give them good performances on the pitch.

It was far from an incendiary message but in mentioning colleagues and supporters the omission of his own boss appeared a stark one.

One of the primary reasons for the current popularity of sporting directors and directors of football is the fact that, nowadays, managers seldom last longer than a couple of years in any job.

Mourinho left no doubt as to how much he valued Pogba's efforts on the night, adding: "Paul was fantastic - his contribution was awesome".
