Man United to appoint their first ever director of football

The two had exchanged tense comments in the media over the summer - primarily with Mourinho urging Pogba to replicate his World Cup form in Manchester.

The Frenchman was made captain for the Leicester match, with former captain Michael Carrick and coach Kieran McKenna the ones to tell Pogba of the decision.

"How do the Manchester United fans feel about that? There are things that I can not say otherwise I will get fined", commented Pogba. "Michael Carrick was also captain", Pogba said.

Prior to the transfer window slamming shut on Thursday evening, there had been a few weeks of speculation that Pogba even wanted to leave Old Trafford for a second time, with his agent Mino Raiola seemingly trying to negotiate a £100m move to Spanish giants Barcelona.

Despite their undisputed millions in the bank, Manchester United have been one of the more traditional clubs, with the manager tending to pick the players that he wants to sign.

For France, Pogba was paired with N'Golo Kante in midfield and the Chelsea man's aggression and energy allowed Pogba to express himself on the ball.

One the surface of things, it would appear that Jose Mourinho has put all of his eggs in a Paul Pogba shaped basket.

In comments widely regarded as reflecting continuing problems with his relationship with the United boss, he wrote: "I'll always give my best for the fans and my team mates, no matter what's going on".

Piercing through any sense of satisfaction on an opening day win, Pogba chose to use his post-comments to say, "If you're not happy, you can not give your best".

The 25-year-old - who scored a superb goal in France's 4-2 victory over Croatia in the World Cup final - was credited with a "monster performance" by Mourinho in United's opening 2-1 Premier League win over Leicester City on Friday. And now it is even more of a dream come true, wearing this armband, because of the past: the players who have played here and those who have been wearing this.
