Mourinho hails 'monster' Pogba performance

Mourinho hails 'monster' Pogba performance

But the Spurs boss told reporters in his pre-Newcastle press conference that he's more than happy to keep Alderweireld at the club and has claimed that the club received no offers for any of their players. Or you believe in the pundits and go with what they say.

'That's football management. I think football is changing.

The pace slowed in the second half and United got their second with Juan Mata finding Shaw, whose poor first touch, put him through on goal and he slotted home from a tight angle.

Having returned from France's triumph in Russian Federation last month to intense media speculation about his future under United manager Mourinho, the 25-year-old Pogba was named skipper of a team that included debutant Fred.

'Forget the name, the history, the shirt, every match is hard'. We thought a maximum 60 minutes but he managed 80'.

'Paul was fantastic. His contribution was unbelievable. The Portuguese manager was pointedly critical of his star player following the World Cup, essentially challenging him to replicate his World Cup form at the club level.

Incredibly, Pogba had his penalty ruled out and was shown a second yellow card for faking his shot, which unfairly sent the goalkeeper the wrong way.

He added: "The thinking is he is a very good penalty taker and likes the responsibility of it and he is first choice".

Pogba responded with a strong all-round performance, as well as scoring the opening goal after what I have to say was a very odd run-up for his penalty. 'I chose to take it. "Maybe on the next game I leave it to Alexis", said Pogba. "As a Man United fan, winning is the most important thing".

Manchester United did not follow through with some of Jose Mourinho's transfer targets because of misgivings about the players he had identified. The French midfielder, who captained and scored in the match, said this on his social media channels: "I'll always give my best to the fans and my teammates no matter what's going on".

'I won't be full with a World Cup. "I haven't won the Premier League, I haven't won the Champions League, I haven't won the European Championship so there are more to win".
