Paul Pogba: Manchester United icons helped me become a leader

Jose Mourinho

"It was very good to go out there, to feel the fans supporting us and to play at home in Old Trafford is always good", he told MUTV".

The France midfielder scored from the penalty spot to help United record a 2-1 win over Leicester City on Friday, despite returning to training just four days prior to the fixture.

"There are things, and there are things that I can not say, otherwise I will get fined", Pogba said.

"I don't think there's any question that a player would say that under Fergie because you'd have been finished".

United have never had a director of football before but it's a role that has worked quite well for arch-rivals Manchester City, who appointed Txiki Begiristain in 2012 to much acclaim.

Paul Pogba added fuel to rumours of his deteriorating relationship with Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho, saying he could not express himself for fear of being fined.

The Red Devils emerged victorious after a feisty encounter which saw them defeat The Foxes 2-1 at Old Trafford, courtesy goals from 2018 FIFA World Cup victor Paul Pogba and left-back Luke Shaw.

Djokovic downs home boy Polansky in Toronto
Djokovic, the ninth seed in Toronto , last won the Rogers Cup in 2016 and is coming off a win at Wimbledon this year. Haase instead faced Russian veteran Mikhail Youzhny, who pulled out of his second-round qualifying match on Sunday.

"I agree to the point that it doesn't matter who you're playing in the Premier League, they're tough".

"There are things and there are things that I can not say otherwise I will get fined", Pogba said before walking off.

But there is something brewing behind the scenes and there has been for some time after Mourinho left Pogba out of the team on multiple occasions last season and publicly criticized him.

Barcelona could still make a move to sign Pogba before the August 31st transfer deadline in Spain and even if these quotes are the clearest indication yet that the player is not happy working with Mourinho, it is hard to imagine Old Trafford chiefs selling one of their star men this month.

The publication claims Pogba wants to stay at United and become a leader at the club. "For me, it was a dream come true".

"If you'd have said to me six years ago that Manchester United were the title winners and then would spend £700m in the next few years, I would have said that they would have won multiple titles".
