Paul Pogba avoided the opportunity to end talk he is unsettled at Manchester United by insisting: “there are things that I cannot say, otherwise I will get fined.”
He has been linked with moves to Barcelona and Juventus after sources said the 25-year-old was unhappy at some of Mourinho’s criticism of him during the summer.
Speaking to reporters after the game against Leicester, Pogba was asked whether he is “happy and comfortable” at the club, but the £89.3 million man turned down the chance to put the speculation to bed.
“There are things, and there are things that I cannot say, otherwise I will get fined,” he said.
Moments after leaving the stadium around 11.30 p.m., Pogba posted on social media: “I’ll always give my best to the fans and my teammates no matter what’s going on.”
Pogba endured a turbulent season at Old Trafford last term and was dropped for a crucial Champions League tie with Sevilla in favour of 21-year-old Scott McTominay.
Despite having just four days training after his post-World Cup break, he put in a match of the match performance against Leicester.
And afterwards the new world champion vowed to always work hard “for the people that trust me.”
He said: “I always give my best for the fans, for the teammates and for the people that trust me.
“With the players that we have, of course we’re Manchester United, we have to look at the top of the league. That’s obvious.
“I mean, Manchester United, we have to show on the pitch, we have to play well, we have to be focused and we need people to trust us.”
