The two had exchanged tense comments in the media over the summer - primarily with Mourinho urging Pogba to replicate his World Cup form in Manchester.

Pogba has become the teacher in this United midfield, with summer signing Fred and academy product Andreas Pereira looking up to the Frenchman and learning from him.

Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba says he's learned plenty from the captains he's played under.

However, Manchester United's style of play has attracted criticism despite having attacking talents such as Alexis Sanchez and Romelu Lukaku. "There are things that I can not say otherwise I will get fined", commented Pogba.

Asked about the conversation with Sanchez by Sky Sports , Pogba explained: "We don't really have one [a designated penalty taker]".

Meanwhile, NAIJ.com previously had reported that Barcelona president Josep Maria Bartomeu says the Spanish champions have left the door open on a possible bid for Manchester United star Paul Pogba.

"I actually like the signings Jose Mourinho has made, they're more along the lines of the players I'd like to see at this football club".

Jose Mourinho's side finished the season without any silverware following a 1-0 loss to Chelsea FC in the FA Cup final at Wembley.

The Red Devils started their Premier League campaign by beating Leicester City 2-1, while Liverpool scored a 4-0 romp over West Ham on Sunday, and McAteer thinks little has changed at the Reds' rivals.

I think the future for him in the French national team, amongst that fantastic group of players, can only be brilliant, and I hope that he understands why he was very good.

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

When asked after the game whether he was happy at the club, Pogba said, in remarks published on Sunday, that "There are things I can not say, otherwise I will get fined". "For me, it was a dream come true".
