David Moyes: 'Manchester United will be top in November'

David Moyes: 'Manchester United will be top in November'

They 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.

After being one of the star men in United's 2-1 truimph over Leicester, with Pogba scoring the opener form the penalty spot, he was more expressive after the match.

The 25-year-old has been linked with a move away during the transfer window, with both Barcelona and former club Juventus reportedly interested, but looks set to remain with his current employers.

Pogba has been strongly linked with a move to Barcelona in recent weeks, amid suggestions that he was disappointed by Mourinho's faint praise of his achievement as he played a pivotal role in helping France win the World Cup in Russian Federation this summer.

It is understood that Woodward would still have a key role in the buying and selling of players despite the new role, while Mourinho - or whoever is in charge at Old Trafford - would also be heavily involved.

Pogba, who was given the captaincy by Mourinho on Friday, summed up what it meant for him to be happy and comfortable.

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". That's all I say.

The Daily Mail's chief sports writer Martin Samuel believes it is never a good sign when a player is speaking cryptically about his manager. "There are things that I can not say otherwise I will get fined", Pogba said.

"If you're not happy, you can not give your best", said Pogba. I have always been talking to my team-mates. No, I just have to be myself and do what I know, do what I can do and do what I know to do.

"I always love this club".

"I wonder if Jose's words the other day, "Let's wait until the end of November", I would be very surprised if United weren't top of the league come the end of November". "I came in the academy, I grew up, I played for the first team".

"Pogba was a monster", "We thought maximum [he would play] 60 minutes, but he managed more than 80".
