Paul Scholes sends message to Man United fans about Jose Mourinho

Share

Paul Pogba has posted a cryptic message on social media after helping Manchester United to a 2-1 win over Leicester saying he will always give his best "no matter what is going on".

"That's football, that's football management, I think football is changing and probably football managers should be called head coaches".

I had my plans, and I had my plans for many months, and I find myself in the beginning of the Premier League with the market closed, and I'm in a situation that I thought was not going to be the situation I would be in.

However, a move did not materialise and Mourinho must now work with the same central defensive setup as he did last season.

Pogba displayed great leadership qualities as France won their second World Cup and the 25-year old carried that form over into the Premier League season tonight. I enjoy the last season, the fight to finish where we finished and to manage the best position in five or six years.

He added: "We play against a team that invest more than us".

Victory in the Premier League opener was a much-needed shot in the arm after weeks of doom and gloom, with summer target Harry Maguire's inclusion in the Foxes' line-up serving as a reminder of what they missed.

"Of course, we have second or third choice in case he is not confident or some reason doesn't want to take it but he was ready and of course he trained lots of penalties during the World Cup because it's something in a competition like that every player trains a lot and he was vert confident".

Although he waned towards the end of the game, Pogba took his penalty very well early on to put United 1-0 up and played a number of risky passes into United's forwards as the Red Devils looked to counter-attack in the second half.

"I am very pleased for Luke Shaw".

Mourinho left no doubt as to how much he valued Pogba's efforts on the night, adding: "Paul was fantastic - his contribution was awesome". Just a few days ago FC Barcelona offered Man United more than € 100 million to pry him away from Old Trafford.

'The manager puts names out, after that it is how we feel, ' he said. Again, I know the words you want me to say or not to say.

"Pogba was a monster", Mourinho said.

Quizzed about the conversation with Sanchez by Sky Sports after the 2-1 win, Pogba said: "We don't really have one [a designated penalty taker]". I am someone who likes challenges and wants to progress and you have to leave it behind now.
