"We have to wait until the end of November to understand if we can fight for the title".
Mourinho has cut a frustrated figure following United's failure to meet his transfer demands, with no players joining Fred, Diogo Dalot and Lee Grant in Manchester, after the Portuguese boss requested at least two more signings before Thursday's deadline.
Their first thought when they got the ball was always to get it forward and they were trying to get their wide players high up the pitch, which is the United way. That's all I'll say'.
"[United] is a different team, obviously". Paul, he was fantastic his contribution was wonderful, but the fuel was disappearing every minute so we were in trouble and I needed [Marouane] Fellaini and [Scott] McTominay to give me that balance in midfield.
"He looks fed up and with what has come up from the America trip I don't see him lasting the season".
Pogba and Mourinho will never be bosom buddies. "Grow up you t*t, if you want to be heard then say so, if you don't, then do one".
"If you're doing it for money, there's a point about doing things for money, but there's a point about doing things because you love it".
United kick-started their campaign on the right foot with a 2-1 victory over Leicester as Luke Shaw followed up Pogba's opener with a second goal in the 83rd minute before Jamie Vardy scored what turned out to be a consolation goal for Leicester. A player that gets chosen and is happy, you always feel more comfortable than when he's not happy.
That came after just four days training following his summer break.
Jose is the type of manager who gives someone the captaincy for the right reasons and I think he chose to give Pogba some responsibility for managing the game and the players around him, which was a very clever move.
We have big and multi-functional coaching staffs, and I think we are more the head coach than the manager. [Shaw's] game was very complete, even if I forget the goal, of course an important goal for us, but the performance was very complete.
"We played against a team that invest more than us".
