Pogba still happy at Man Utd, insists Mourinho

A general view of Manchester United's Old Trafford stadium before the Premiership match against Liverpool at Old Trafford

Former England manager Sam Allardyce believes break down in negotiations stopped Manchester United from signing a new centre-back. He's one of the players that I have to speak to see how physically and mentally he feels.

"Of course he does, but he's got Fred with him, he's got other players as well".

Captain for the night Paul Pogba, back at the club as a World Cup victor, scored an early penalty after Daniel Amartey handled a shot from Alexis Sanchez - another stand-out player in this team - after just 77 seconds.

The Premier League season kicks off tonight when United host Leicester City and all eyes will be on Mourinho.

"He didn't have a pre-season, three days of pre-season", Mourinho said.

His performance at the 2018 World Cup for France though only confirmed of his standing as one of the top talents in the world at his position, which garnered him plenty of interest this summer during the transfer window.

But Mourinho, entering his third season in charge at Old Trafford, claimed, in typically confrontational fashion, that there are no problems in his squad or in his commitment to the club.

Marcos Rojo is another player who sustained an injury while representing his country in Russian Federation so he'll miss the season opener along with summer signing Diogo Dalot as he's still recovering from knee surgery that he underwent in April.

Hello good evening and welcome to the start of another English football season and If you are a big fan of football, then this must be bliss for you.

"I'm going to enjoy this season".

But he was quick to point out his United side were closest to runaway leaders Manchester City last season, even if they finished 19 points adrift.

It's clear that Mourinho and Pogba don't always have the best relationship but the French midfielder is a huge talent and someone who could play a key part in bringing trophies back to Old Trafford. "We have a very good squad, with very good players and it is very hard to add players to that", he said. Can Paul Pogba get the best out of Paul Pogba?

Leicester have finally cashed in on Riyad Mahrez but they've shown characteristic resolve to rebuff United's interest in Harry Maguire.
