Pogba only returned to training at the start of the week after helping France to win the tournament but he was thrust into the starting line-up on Friday and given the captain's armband, with his penalty setting United on course for a 2-1 win against Leicester.

He adds: "When people trust you, then you're good in your own head, and it's going to be easier. We play against a team that invest more than us". Mourinho seems to be at odds with some important figures at the club.
