Paul Pogba and Jose Mourinho defend 'normal' relationship at Manchester United

We knew the second half was going to be a different game. This time last season the Red Devils already had eight clean-sheets and had only shipped five goals.

The Frenchman has failed to set the stage alight and his inconsistent performances has seen his relationship with the Portuguese coach deteriorate, so much so that there was even talk of him moving to Barcelona early this summer.

"The press says we have a awful relationship, Paul some weeks ago said we had a typical coach-player relationship, I think we have a good relationship". The best experiences for teams are against teams that are really at the top and we have that opportunity.

'I just want to play, perform, that's my job and give my best for my team and for everybody, for the fans, for the club.

"We got off to a good start but weren't able to add a second and then we disappeared from the game a little", he added.

"But it is fantastic to have this feeling that it doesn't matter what the score is - it is not over".

"When you play against a super team, like [on Wednesday], if you give an advantage away, it's hard to climb the mountain". "And that is a fantastic quality for the team".

Just over a month on from their 'frosty exchange' on the United training ground, the duo were seen shaking hands at Carrington on Tuesday ahead of flying out to play Pogba's former club Juventus in the Champions League. "We don't know, a muscle problem, and we have to wait a little bit".

"He needs these couple of days".

Meanwhile, Wilson has scored four goals in his last four league games and has been touted as a contender for a place in Gareth Southgate's England squad. These players are not good enough to play in a club as big as Manchester United and that has been going on for years.

"Ronaldo is a smart guy", Juve manager Massimiliano Allegri said, via Calciomercato.com.

"He continues to score goals and again today he was a real, real threat".
