Paul Pogba v Jose Mourinho standoff

Paul Pogba Jose Mourinho

GETTY Paul Pogba and Jose Mourinho don't always see eye to eye

Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho has stated that he doesn't care about Paul Pogba's comments after his sides 2-1 win over Leicester City last weekend.

"The truth is that we've been together for two years and I can't ask anymore from him".

"I don't want to be disrespectful or arrogant about other keepers and say Courtois is not good or Manuel Neuer (of Bayern Munich) is not good - there are so many". I didn't ask him, I'm not going to ask him. The Frenchman has been linked with a move away from Old Trafford all summer but will want to prove his commitment to Manchester United and ability to lead the team with another stellar performance.

It is understood Manchester United rejected an offer for Pogba from Barcelona earlier in August, although the Spanish club have not ruled out returning for the player with their transfer window open until the end of the month. Let us know in the comments what you make of the rift.

Both, Nick Foles and Tom Brady made their preseason debut's as they met each other for the second time in 2018. Defensive end Michael Bennett stayed in the locker room, NBC Philadelphia reported on Twitter.

He said: "I don't think he will go, and he can not have any bad feeling towards us because we opened the door for him in case his desire was to go". The player's relationship with manager Jose Mourinho is also said to be at an all-time low, as per the Metro. I repeat: "I want him to work the way he is doing and play the way he is doing and that's the only thing that matters".

"The training was really, really good all week and we go to win, obviously".

"Please don't put him in a situation where people can think he's not a polite, educated guy, which he is".

The 22-year-old spent time on loan at Granada and Valencia during that period - time away that has clearly benefited a player determined to kick on again and become a serial victor like manager Mourinho.

The main highlights of today's Mourinho press session were the responses the Portugese gave about his relationship with Paul Pogba.

"He's working extremely well here, but I have to say in his defence that write what you want about him, write what you want about me, please don't say lies".

"I am very confident but if he doesn't that's football", said Mourinho.

Pogba was in fine form for the start of the last season but struggled to perform when he returned from an ill timed injury.
