Paul Pogba Tight-Lipped Over Manchester United Situation For Fear Of Being Fined

"They (week one opponent Leicester City) spent more money than us, so in the Premier League we must get used to teams with players of the same quality that we have".

United have denied that happened, while it was also reported that Mino Raiola, the player's agent, had struck a deal with Barcelona.

Pogba has been strongly linked with a move to Barcelona in recent weeks, amid suggestions that he was disappointed by Mourinho's faint praise of his achievement as he played a pivotal role in helping France win the World Cup in Russian Federation this summer. He clearly meant to motivate Pogba and make him focused for United as he was with France.

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.

A unusual thing happened after the third-minute penalty that gave Jose Mourinho's team a fortunate lead at Old Trafford on Friday night.

Speaking to journalists after his Man of the Match display on Friday, Pogba said the following when asked about captaining United and being committed to the cause.

Thursday's transfer deadline came and went without United adding one or two more players to the squad, something Mourinho believes they badly needed. That's all I say.

Sloter completed 9 of 11 passes, including a 9-yard strike to wide receiver Chad Beebe in the fourth quarter. Broncos S Jamal Carter (hamstring), CB Marcus Rios (hip) and TE Austin Traylor (right shoulder) got hurt.

"If you're not happy, you can not give your best", said Pogba. "There are things that I can not say otherwise I will get fined", Pogba said before walking off.

Pogba was overlooked as the permanent successor to Michael Carrick as club captain, with Valencia instead getting the nod from manager Jose Mourinho - a decision that reportedly upset the midfielder.

"It's not a role that I give to myself".

"I always love the club (United)".

"I always give my best for the fans, for the team mates. and for the people that trust me". For me, it was a dream come true.

This put them in a comfortable position throughout the rest of the match, and even more so when Luke Shaw tapped home in an unorthodox manner in the second half.
