Pogba leaves Mourinho raving after 'monster' performance

Pogba leaves Mourinho raving after 'monster' performance

It has been a hard summer for United boss Jose Mourinho and I said last week that I felt he needed to find some harmony within the club.

The man who cost United a then world record $116 million in 2016 was routinely dropped by Mourinho last season, and had been linked with a move away from Old Trafford in recent days with Barcelona's interest reportedly piqued by his frosty relationship with the Portuguese coach.

France worldwide Pogba played, and scored, in the World Cup final just 26 days ago but with options thin on the ground he barely hesitated when invited to take to the field against the Foxes.

"In the periods Leicester were stronger we played as a team and coped well".

"We thought maximum 60 minutes but he managed (more than) 80".

The 22-year-old attacker is among those to have been available for the Red Devils throughout the summer having missed the World Cup.

Mourinho said that he had no choice but to hand a start to Pogba after Ander Herrera's injury.

"A good match. A match where I needed six changes not three", he told Sky Sports in his post-match interview. Paul [Pogba] was fantastic - his contribution was incredible, but the fuel was disappearing every minute, so we were in trouble and we needed [Scott] McTominay and [Marouane] Fellaini to give me that balance in midfield.

Bitcoin is under pressure and leading the crypto market lower
There's been a couple of big things coming out in the last week and the ETF rejection is the same story we've had for five years. Many in the cryptocurrency community believe that a Bitcoin ETF is the next logical step in the evolution of the market.

Pogba scored and dominated as United's captain in their 2-1 home win against Leicester City to kick off their season.

"We knew we were not going to be fit, 100 per cent, but the most important (thing) was to start well the Premier League".

"We have brought in great managers without a doubt but let's take Mourinho for example".

De Gea made a huge stop in the first half on James Maddison, denying the young player in the box with this save.

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.

Paul Pogba's early penalty and the first goal of Luke Shaw's career ensured Jamie Vardy's stoppage-time strike was merely a consolation.

"I mean, Manchester United, we have to show on the pitch, we have to play well, we have to be focused and we need people to trust us".
