Pogba says he needs more support to stay at Manchester United

Pogba says he needs more support to stay at Manchester United

Asked about the differences between playing for France and playing for United, Pogba said: "I am the same, but it's a different team, obviously".

But the 25-year-old was made captain for his club's Premier League opener against Leicester City and was praised by Mourinho for his performance, which included the goal that set United on the way to a 2-1 win.

Pogba joined United for a then-world record £89m in August 2016, but was left out of the starting line-up for both legs of United's Champions League last-16 defeat by Sevilla last season.

Mundo Deportivo claim Pogba, who is contracted to United until June 2021, wants to leave Old Trafford this summer because of a strained relationship with coach Jose Mourinho.

"Pogba was fantastic on Friday night when you consider he has only been back in training since Monday and will still be coming down from the incredible high of winning the World Cup".

"It hasn't gone well, but you've got to remember Jose Mourinho has spent a lot of money, but the Louis van Gaal signings I have to say were really poor".

The World Cup victor did little to ease the situation after stating that there are things he "cannot say otherwise I will get fined".

"Michael Carrick was also captain", Pogba said.

"I have always loved the club".

"When you are comfortable, when people trust you, you are good in the head and it's easier".

"It makes me proud to wear this armband".

'We are never going to find another Andres Iniesta, that's impossible because there is only one and he is in Japan, ' manager Ernesto Valverde said. I have played for the Academy, I have played for the first team and it was a dream come true.

Pogba has been strongly linked with a move to Barcelona in recent days and while he has not taken the opportunity to dismiss links with a move to the Catalan giants, McGrath believes his former club can not allow the player to leave ahead of the August 31st transfer deadline in Spain. Or you believe in the pundits and go with what they say.
