Pogba in discussion with Mourinho.

However, Pogba's post-match interview fuelled questions about how happy he was at Old Trafford, with the Frenchman saying: "There are things that I can not say otherwise I will get fined".

Mourinho was then asked specifically about Pogba's comments following the win over Leicester, during which the 25-year-old put in a man-of-the-match display and scored an early penalty.

Jose Mourinho needs Paul Pogba at his best to boost Manchester United's chances of catching neighbours City, says Darren Bent. I want him to play for the team, which he's doing, and, I repeat, I couldn't be happier than what I am.

"That's the truth. I can not demand more from him, I can not ask more from him".

However, asked about his relationship with Pogba during a press conference on Friday afternoon, Mourinho poured cold water on claims that he was unhappy with the player, making it clear that he felt the complete opposite way. "I had a proposal from China too, but I didn't want to go there because I wanted to join United".

Ms Schneider had a hard life, born with drugs in her system to a drug addicted mother who died when she was only 13-years-old. Speaking of Ms Stubblefield's family, photographer Maggie Steber, who documented their journey, said: "They are warriors".

"He's very polite, he's very educated, he never had a fight with me".

It seems somewhat unusual to suggest a player that you've constantly nagged at for showing a lack of application should have been made club captain the minute he entered the training ground, but that's our Paul. We never had a warm [heated] exchange of words, everything is respected, I have no problems at all.

"I don't care", Mourinho said. I'm here for two years and a couple of months and the only player that was fined was Anthony Martial. "I want him to work the way he is doing and play the way he is doing and that's all that matters".

Lingard had three weeks off after his involvement in England's World Cup campaign, while Valencia and Matic picked up injuries on United's pre-season tour. Last season we thought he should before the game against Basel [in November]. "Matic and Valencia, they are training with the team since Thursday, fully fit but not yet to play or even to be selected".

"They won the league by a distance past year and they look just as good as ever when I saw them the other day". We know he always does a job for the team - right back, left back, starting player, on the bench, he always does it.
