Three things Manchester United learned in win over Leicester City

13 August, 2018, 09:29 | Author: Heidi Alvarez
  • Transfer deadline day Man Utd continue to be linked with a move for Toby Alderweireld

The Red Devils boss was left to reflect on a frustrating transfer window as the most recent deadline passed, with Old Trafford welcoming just three fresh faces through its doors.

"What do you mean being the real Pogba?" he asked.

But in comments attributed to Pogba in today's British newspapers, he says: "There are things I can say and there are things I cannot say. otherwise I will get fined".

Pogba said "everybody was on the same page" in the France dressing room, from Deschamps to the staff and players - that has not necessarily been the case at United with several players at different times singled out for public criticism by Mourinho.

"If you'd have said to me six years ago that Manchester United were the title winners and then would spend £700m in the next few years, I would have said that they would have won multiple titles".

"If you're not happy, you can not give your best", Pogba said. "That's all I'll say".

Sterling slumps to new low as fears grow of no Brexit deal

Crocs Will Outsource Manufacturing And Focus On Online Sales To Stay Afloat
And now it appears they have fallen out of favour even more in recent years, with the share price halving between 2014 and 2017. Executive vice president Carrie Teffner will leave the company by next April, but is stepping down as CFO on August 24.


There's no doubt Pogba has always been surrounded by great leaders and there were plenty of fans calling for him to be named the club's captain.

"Like I said, when you are comfortable, when people trust with everyone or confident, are good in the head, it's going to be easier".

"It's my style of taking penalties, I've always done".

So far there's no word as to who would fill this role, or when they would be appointed. "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", Moyes told BBC Sport.

"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".

Despite their undisputed millions in the bank, Manchester United have been one of the more traditional clubs, with the manager tending to pick the players that he wants to sign.
