Pogba feels like United leader regardless of captaincy

Man Utd transfer news Harry Maguire

"You have to know one thing - a player that gets chosen and is happy, you always feel more comfortable than when he's not happy".

Although the Red Devils made three signings - midfielder Fred, young full-back Diogo Dalot and backup goalkeeper Lee Grant - Jose Mourinho was left frustrated by the failure to land a new centre-back.

I think we are more the head coach than the manager.

Pogba, who was dropped by Mourinho for both legs of the Champions League last-16 loss to Sevilla last term, said there were differences between playing for France and United.

The duo were often at loggerheads last season, with the World Cup victor finding himself benched or occasionally dropped altogether.

Mourinho is believed to have clashed with United's hierarchy over the profile of transfer targets, with the likes of Toby Alderweireld, Jerome Boateng and Diego Godin considered too old by the board. "And wearing this, it's even more because of the past, because of the players that played here, the people that have been wearing this".

Luke Shaw was also said to have butted heads with the former Real Madrid manager at one point but the pair seem happy with each other now.

Confirmation hearings for Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh to begin September 4
If Brett Kavanaugh was fit to be on the Supreme Court, Senate Republicans would have no issue releasing his full records. He wrote, "We believe an indictment should not be pursued while the President is in Office".

"Every time you see him now, he's frowning, he's angry, he wants to row with everyone".

Manchester United hope to appoint a director of football once the club completes its current restructure.

He said, "But if you look at the games that Manchester United play in the first nine or 10 games, you're not playing a City, an Arsenal, a Chelsea in that period".

"They (week one opponent Leicester City) spent more money than us, so in the Premier League we must get used to teams with players of the same quality that we have".

Liverpool new boy Fabinho has denied claims Monaco stopped him from signing for Manchester United.

He did not directly mention Mourinho, who has been critical of the player he signed from Juventus in 2016.

"Manchester never showed any formal interest, they never made me an offer at all", Fabinho told Sky Sports.
