Pogba tight-lipped over United situation for fear of being fined

On the spot Paul Pogba scored the opening goal of the Premier League season

Shearer though has warned Jose to not escalate things more than necessary, believing taking on too numerous club's stars can end poorly for him. "And wearing this, it's even more because of the past, because of the players that played here, the people that have been wearing this".

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. 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.

'We have big and multi-functional coaching staff, and I think we are more the head coach than the manager.

"Every team is a good team, forget the name, forget the history, forget the shirt". It's the last time I speak about it. It's over, the market is closed.

"I think football is changing and managers should be called head coaches".

It's been widely claimed for quite some time that Pogba doesn't get along with Jose Mourinho, who made comments after the victory that appear to verify some tension between the club manager and CEO Ed Woodward. "We have to wait until the end of November to understand if we can fight for the title".

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

The move is said to be a recognition by the club hierarchy of 'the need to modernise in an era when managers are often in situ only for the short term, ' with Mourinho now the second longest serving United manager in a generation.

"I'll always give my best to the fans and my team-mates no matter what's going on", he wrote.

"Very good players, fantastic investment, an incredible squad".

He had also been willing to offload Anthony Martial and replace him with the 30-year-old Willian, but United's decision-makers want a greater focus on development rather than short-term fixes.
