Manchester United Set To Make A Major Change: Will Jose Be Happy?

"He got the captaincy and played very well, but Mourinho will have noticed the line and there will always be a response, because there always is".

Pogba only returned to training at the start of the week after helping France to win the tournament but he was thrust into the starting line-up on Friday and given the captain's armband, with his penalty setting United on course for a 2-1 win against Leicester.

The 25-year-old has been linked with a move away during the transfer window, with both Barcelona and former club Juventus reportedly interested, but looks set to remain with his current employers.

The World Cup victor was sublime but with Mourinho openly criticizing him in the past and now exactly praising him for helping France to World Cup glory this summer, Pogba doesn't seem that happy at Old Trafford.

"It was an impressive display that led to a standing ovation at Old Trafford and one that had Mourinho describing the Frenchman as a "monster".

Pogba was asked by reporters Friday night if he is "happy and comfortable" at the club, but his answer neither confirmed nor denied the tension that is being widely reported by the media right now.

Paul Pogba said he needs to be happy to perform at his best for Manchester United, adding that he would be fined if he spoke his true feelings.

"There are things and there are things that I can not say otherwise I will get fined", Pogba told the British press after the Leicester match in a rare occasion he has stopped to speak with them.

"If you're not happy, you can not give your best", Pogba said. That's all I say. "I still enjoy playing football, I still love football and I still give my best with the team, for the team".

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

"I wonder if Jose's words the other day, "Let's wait until the end of November", I would be very surprised if United weren't top of the league come the end of November".

"I always love the club", he continued. "We must get used to teams who have players of the same quality that we have", he told Sky Sports.
