'I can not say': Pogba drops massive hint at United trouble

Man Utd news Jose Mourinho did not get the central defender he wanted on deadline day

Paul Pogba has been named Manchester United captain for their Premier League opener against Leicester. "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", he said.

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

World Cup victor Paul Pogba's third minute penalty and a late goal from Luke Shaw gave Manchester United a 2-1 win over Leicester City at Old Trafford in the opening game of the Premier League season on Friday.

Two years after returning to Old Trafford from Juventus, the 25-year-old is reported to be unhappy and informed executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward of his desire to leave.

Former captain Michael Carrick and fellow coach Kieran McKenna informed Pogba that he would lead United in his first match since winning the World Cup.

But in comments attributed to Pogba in today's British newspapers, he says: "There are things I can say and there are things I cannot say. otherwise I will get fined".

"I'll always give my best to the fans and my team-mates no matter what's going on", he wrote.

"It's not just about having the armband". "For us, it will be a hard season because I had my plans for many months". Just try to help the team as much as possible, like they helped me too. "Everybody was on the same page". "The manager has names but after, it's how we feel".

"So, obviously it's easier to go and speak and express yourself, and we went for an objective and the big one was to win".

"[United] is a different team, obviously".

"It's not a role that I give to myself".

"We played well in periods against a good team that invest more than us". I know it's a great cup, it will stay in my mind, but I want to win all the trophies.

"I always love this club".

The move is said to be a recognition by the club hierarchy of 'the need to modernise in an era when managers are often in situ only for the short term, ' with Mourinho now the second longest serving United manager in a generation.

"I wonder if Jose's words the other day, "Let's wait until the end of November", I would be very surprised if United weren't top of the league come the end of November".

"I ran the London marathon in April past and it fell on the same weekend as the FA Cup Semi Final against Spurs, so I took him there and that was his first game".
