Jose Mourinho praises 'monster' performance from Paul Pogba

Pogba-France

"I doubt he'll be going anywhere this season".

The report puts up another difference between the management and manager as they believe in keeping players such as Anthony Martial, Luke Shaw and Paul Pogba.

"He worked amazingly well Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and he's one of the players that I have to speak to see how physically and mentally he feels".

"He seemed to be a leader in that dressing room and Jose knows he needs that out here at the start of the season". Paul, he was fantastic his contribution was incredible, but the fuel was disappearing every minute so we were in trouble and I needed [Marouane] Fellaini and [Scott] McTominay to give me that balance in midfield.

"It's three points, it's what we wanted", Pogba said. I came back on Monday so it was very hard for the legs and the stamina but we played very well.

Things were a lot more even for the rest of the match but I also think Mourinho will be happy with the way his side managed the game when Leicester were posing a threat.

Mourinho has made no secret of his disappointment that he was not able to significantly strengthen his team during the close-season.

Less than a month since Pogba scored in the World Cup final to help France lift the trophy, he was thrown straight into action by Mourinho despite just returning to pre-season training this week.

Chris Pratt’s ‘Cowboy Ninja Viking’ Has Been Delayed Indefinitely By Universal
We'd expect to see at least one other writer to take a crack at it, in an attempt to get the movie back on track. But turns out that will have to wait because the movie has been delayed indefinitely.

Mourinho told Sky Sports on the tough decisions he faced when making substitutions: "A match where I needed six changes not three".

'With a great manager and great team-mates around me I think I've got the foundations to do that here at Manchester United'.

The World Cup-winning midfielder was described as a "monster" by manager Jose Mourinho after contributing so much on the back of only a few days' work at the Aon Training Complex.

'He was very good defensively and was good on the ball.

Fittingly, Paul Pogba's first ever goal in the EPL came against Leicester during the 2016 Season.

"He realised and then he's thinking "there's 2-0, there's the game in the bag", I know they sweated a little bit late on".

It was very exciting to watch for the first 20 or 25 minutes but, when they took their foot off the gas, Leicester came right back into the game.
