Pogba gives cryptic response on United future

Jose Mourinho insisted Manchester United are in for a "difficult" season despite kicking off the campaign with a 2-1 win over Leicester at Old Trafford.

That's a clear indication his relationship with Mourinho has affected his happiness at the club and his ability to turn in the kind of dominant display he gave against Leicester.

Despite aiming his ire at the United board, Mourinho did have some positive things to say about Paul Pogba, who was captain for the night, scored and put in a man-of-the-match performance after a preseason spanning four days and returning to Carrington on Monday.

It has been a hard summer for United boss Jose Mourinho and I said last week that I felt he needed to find some harmony within the club.

"I know that Paul doesn't resist for 90, the same with Fred". The Portuguese manager was pointedly critical of his star player following the World Cup, essentially challenging him to replicate his World Cup form at the club level.

Bairstow & Woakes put England in strong position at Lord’s
But Woakes, who had scored nine previous first-class hundreds, and Jonny Bairstow (93) turned the tide during a stand of 189. Bairstow reached his half-century first, cover driving wrist-spinner Kuldeep Yadav for four, before Woakes outpaced him.

"[United] is a different team, obviously".

The 25-year-old believes that there is no point doing a job if you are not enjoying it, so he was asked whether he is currently happy and comfortable right now.

Pogba also suggested he was comfortable in a leadership role, with United coach Michael Carrick reported to have been instrumental in the Frenchman being handed the armband against Leicester.

"I want to see the spark in his eyes again", Redknapp told the Sky Sports Transfer Talk podcast.

It was nearly as if they were saying "look this is Old Trafford, and we are United - this is how we play".

In addition to disrupting air traffic control, the incident also caused alarm among locals, many of whom recorded the incident. One witness filmed the plane doing a large loop-the-loop, which they first thought was part of an air show rehearsal.

"No, I just have to be myself and do what I know, do what I can do and do what I know to do".

This was backed up by the fact Pogba was made captain for the match last night. It's going to be easier and it makes the team go higher.

"I always give my best for the fans, for the team mates. and for the people that trust me".

Their first thought when they got the ball was always to get it forward and they were trying to get their wide players high up the pitch, which is the United way.

It's Shaw's victor. He scored his first senior team goal with a lovely move around his defender and a fine finish to the far post. For me, it was a dream come true.
