Jose Mourinho Reportedly Confused At Paul Pogba’s ‘Fined’ Comments

It has been suggests that the Red Devils will still look to bolster their defence in the next window, and are expected to try to land Alderweireld, who featured at the 2018 FIFA World Cup with Belgium.

Paul Pogba has admitted he has to "plead the fifth" when discussing his situation and the unrest at Manchester United or else he would be fined.

Asked about the conversation with Sanchez by Sky Sports , Pogba explained: "We don't really have one [a designated penalty taker]. It is just the win that is the most important".

It's been widely claimed for quite some time that Pogba doesn't get along with Jose Mourinho, who made comments after the victory that appear to verify some tension between the club manager and CEO Ed Woodward. "There are things that I can not say otherwise I will get fined".

Jose Mourinho's side finished the season without any silverware following a 1-0 loss to Chelsea FC in the FA Cup final at Wembley.

But it turns out that the Uruguay worldwide had a very good reason for specifically requesting that particular number. Maitland-Niles did play at times as a left-wing back last season but is not a natural fit for the left-back berth.


Asked about Pogba following Barca's 2-1 win against Sevilla in Sunday's Supercopa de Espana, Bartomeu said: "I won't speak of any names, we have respect for all clubs and there are 20 days left".

However, a combination of a poor summer transfer window and the nature of short-term managerial appointments in modern football has led the United hierarchy wanting continuity for future transfer targets and acquisitions.

Pogba was among the goals in that contest, along with Luke Shaw, and much of the post-match reaction has focused on the Frenchman and his sometimes strained relationship with Mourinho.

Paul Pogba has found it hard in recent seasons to produce consistently good performances for Manchester United, but in their opening fixture of the new Premier League season, the Frenchman seemed like a totally different player.

He even went so far as to say that his job is more as a coach than a manager, and that this transition can be generalized to football at large.
