'I've never been so happy with him': Mourinho praises Pogba

The 25-year-old World Cup victor - who scored a superb goal in the 4-2 win over Croatia in the final in July - captained The Red Devils in their opening 2-1 win over Leicester City last Friday.

Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho on Friday dismissed talk of a fallout with Paul Pogba, saying that he "couldn't be happier" with the World Cup-winning France midfielder.

"He did it better and for more time than we could expect, when he says he did it for the fans and for the team is exactly what I want, is exactly what I demand from my players".

"If Jose does try to take on too many players at United, I would not be surprised if the same thing happens again".

I don't think there was a standout person to be captain in that team, I just that that was ideal for him hopefully he can keep that.

Fred also spoke of his ambitions of lifting the Premier League trophy and added that he received offers from China, "When I said United, I saw their faces".

However, asked about his relationship with Pogba during a press conference on Friday afternoon, Mourinho poured cold water on claims that he was unhappy with the player, making it clear that he felt the complete opposite way.

Matic also missed the win over the Foxes after undergoing surgery last month having picked up an abdominal injury while representing his country in Russian Federation this summer and the Brighton game also comes too soon for him.

"Captain's armband? I thought the minute we signed him he should have been made captain", said the flame-haired Pirlo. "I repeat: I want him to play well, I want him to play for that team, the fans and that is what it is".

According to United legend Paul Ince, Mourinho's alleged response to urge the Frenchmen to hand in a transfer request if he wants to leave - is fully dignified. "I want him to work the way he is doing and play the way he is doing and that's all that matters".

He is not expected to start against Brighton but Mourinho believes Pogba can turn in another impressive performance at Brighton, even if Valencia will resume the captaincy on his return from injury.

'I don't think he will go, ' said Mourinho. We know he always does a job for the team - right back, left back, starting player, on the bench, he always does it.
