During a post-match interview, however, the 2018 FIFA World Cup victor said he would not talk too much about his unhappiness at United for fear of getting punished thereafter.

The 25-year-old who just returned to training a few days ago was a surprise starter for United in their 2-1 win over the Foxes, where he scored the first goal.

"I mean, Manchester United, we have to show on the pitch, we have to play well, we have to be focused and we need people to trust us".

And he knows if he lifted the lid on his uneasy alliance with Mourinho in public he'd be hammered with a club fine.

However, when it comes to being a leader in the United team, Pogba says he does not need the armband in order to assume such responsibilities.

Yet, despite Mourinho's earlier warning that United face a "difficult" season after failing to be back him in the transfer market, a winning start did brighten the mood around Old Trafford.

It says Norwood, who spent last season on loan at Fulham and helped them to promotion to the Premier League, "will undergo a medical on Monday, with personal terms not expected to be an issue".

"They (week one opponent Leicester City) spent more money than us, so in the Premier League we must get used to teams with players of the same quality that we have".

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

He said: "Clearly things aren't right, there's a disconnect between the three key players at United and none of it is particularly healthy".

Mourinho told reporters: "A right-winger at Valencia, he spent the season at on the bench. Maybe on the next game I leave it to Alexis", said Pogba.

"That is all I say".

"I always love the club", he said.

"I'll always give my best to the fans and my team-mates no matter what's going on", he wrote. "I love the club. We play against a team that invest more than us".
