Paul Pogba's answer when asked: 'Are you happy at Manchester United?'

Even though he follows many sports his main interest lies in cricket.

"I always give my best for fans, my team-mates and for people who trust me".

Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba admits that he has to bite his tongue rather than saying how he really feels about life at Old Trafford.

MANCHESTER - Paul Pogba eschewed the opportunity to end talk he is unsettled at Manchester United by insisting: "there are things that I can not say, otherwise I will get fined".

"We played well in periods against a good team that invest more than us".

"Paul was fantastic, his contribution was awesome", Mourinho said after taking his captain off late in the game.

"Their first thought when they got the ball was always to get it forward and they were trying to get their wide players high up the pitch, which is the United way".

"I think there was one defensive mistake, and probably the linesman could have helped him and given a free-kick against Leicester. For me, it's a dream come true", Pogba said.

"It's not having just the armband", Pogba said of his view on leadership.

Shaw forced a save from Kasper Schmeichel just past the 40-minute mark, settling a pass from Juan Mata after some nice build-up play from United before firing right at the Leicester keeper.

He added: "We play against a team that invest more than us". His initial shot was stunningly stopped by the Leicester keeper, but the deflection flew into the air and all of Old Trafford held their breaths as they waited to see if it would fall into the back of the net.

Pogba joined United from Juventus for a then-world record £89m in August 2016.

"So, it's pretty early to speak about this now", Pogba said when asked of their chances of success this term.

Yet after Mourinho was denied the signing of an elite centre-back in the summer window he voiced his frustrations by hinting United's board, led by Woodward, are acting as de facto football experts by having the final say over him regarding recruitment.

"With the players that we have...of course we're Manchester United, we have to look at the top of the league".

"A match where I needed six changes, not three".
