Paul Pogba hints that relationship with Jose Mourinho makes him unhappy

Paul Pogba rejoined Manchester United in August of 2016 for a fee of around £89m.

However, since rejoining the Red Devils, Pogba has not quite been able to justify his price tag or show off his full potential and after United’s season opener vs Leicester, Pogba has hinted that he is not 100% happy at United and that is, in part, due to Jose Mourinho.

‘When people trust you and have confidence then you are good in your own head and it’s going to be easier’

“You have to know one thing. You have to know one thing – a player that gets chosen and is happy, you always feel more comfortable than when he’s not happy.

“That’s all I say. After the World Cup I am the same. I am the same. It’s the same Paul Pogba.

“It’s a different team, obviously.

“I still enjoying playing football, I still love football and I still give my best with the team, for the team.

“Like I said, when you are comfortable, when people trust you and have confidence then you are good in your own head and it’s going to be easier.

“I always give my best for the fans, for the team-mates and for the people that trust me.

“If you’re not happy in doing what you’re doing right now, there’s no point doing it.

“If you’re doing it for money, there’s a point about doing things for money, but there’s a point about doing things because you love it.

“If you are enjoying what you do you give your the best. But if you’re not happy, you cannot give your best.”

Manchester United vs Leicester

After a stellar World Cup with France Pogba returned to United for their season opener vs Leicester City on Friday night and was actually made captain by Mourinho.

United’s season got off to a great start when they were awarded a penalty inside the first three minutes of the game, which Paul Pogba calmly converted.

The Reds then spent much of the game defending their lead before Luke Shaw doubled it with his first senior goal in the 83rd minute.

Jamie Vardy did give Leicester some hope of coming back when he made it 2-1 in the 92nd minute.

However, it was too late and United were able to claim their first win of the season with Pogba as their captain.
