Jose Mourinho reacts after Paul Pogba's "unhappy" comments

Pogba Mourinho

The France World Cup victor, who moved to Old Trafford in 2016 in a US$114 million (RM465.5 million) transfer deal, has been linked with another big-money move, to Barcelona, following a series of apparent fallouts with United manager Jose Mourinho.

Surprisingly, the Red Devils manager softened on Friday while reacting after Pogba's top performance, the 55-year-old said: "Pogba was a monster".

"If you're not happy, you can not give your best".

The two players were seen quarreling over who should take the spot-kick, which was won just minutes into their Premier League opener at Old Trafford.

Pogba, who scored in United's season-opening win against Leicester on Friday as captain, is reported to have told of his desire to leave Old Trafford amid speculation of a strained relationship with boss Jose Mourinho. "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". "There are things that I can not say otherwise I will get fined", commented Pogba.

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

The midfielder was arguably United's best player throughout, bossing the midfield while being the main creative outlet for the likes of Alexis Sanchez and Marcus Rashford.

Manager José Mourinho is claimed to have highlighted the need for a new centre back, however the tactician was knocked back by chief executive Ed Woodward, who insisted that targets Harry Maguire, Diego Godín and Jérôme Boateng "would not improve the first team".

"For me, when I have this I have the confidence of the fans, they all help me".

He adds: "When people trust you, then you're good in your own head, and it's going to be easier".

Barcelona president Josep Maria Bartomeu did not rule out a move for Paul Pogba as he admitted there could still be business done before the transfer window closes in Spain.

"I always love the club", he continued.
