Jose Mourinho: I wanted to bring on Anthony Martial but couldn't

The resultant penalty kick gave Paul Pogba the chance score the first goal of the season which compounded Amartey's woes. A player that gets chosen and is happy, you always feel more comfortable than when he's not happy.

And the Portuguese seemed to confirm those reports after Friday's unimpressive 2-1 win over Leicester City in the Premier League's opening game of the 2018-19 season, a campaign he predicts will be "difficult" for his squad.

France World Cup victor Pogba has been heavily linked with a move to Barcelona in recent days, with the player's refusal to deny the links with the Catalan giants via his various social media platforms fuelling rumours that he is open to leaving United in this transfer window.

Pogba, though, posted a cryptic message on Instagram after the match, with his reference to "no matter what's going on" suggesting that something may not be quite right regarding his situation at the club.

"There are things I can not say otherwise I will get fined", he added.

This may be just the beginning of a brewing frenemy feud between Manigault-Newman and Trump. The White House has already slammed it as "riddled with lies and false accusations".

But Pogba, who wore the captain's armband for United on Friday, added: "I always love the club [United]. We just want to go up and that's it".

"I won't be full from a World Cup".

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

Mourinho made no secret of his disappointment after missing out on several summer targets, with United failing to bring in a centre-half before Thursday's deadline despite the long list of targets which included Harry Maguire, Toby Alderweireld, Jerome Boateng, Yerry Mina, Diego Godin and Kurt Zouma. He scored in the final against Croatia and earned praise after the tournament when a video from inside the French dressing room revealed his inspiring team talk before facing Argentina in the round of 16.

"We have big coaching staffs and I think we are more the head coach than the manager". "Everybody was on the same page".

"We play against a team that invest more than us".

"We have to wait for end of November, beginning of December to understand how things are going and if we can fight for the title".

Asked about the differences between playing for France and playing for United, Pogba said: "I am the same, but it's a different team, obviously".

"But I told the players we had very good periods, we had lots of glimpses of the football we wanted to play".
