Jose Mourinho’s Press Conference Offers More Optimism Than Usual

Joleon Lescott

Despite this, comments he made to reporters after the game suggested all was not well and that he risked a fine in saying what he really felt about the matter.

Pogba claimed following the season-opening win at Old Trafford that he could not speak in depth about his situation at United because he would get fined.

But Mourinho dismissed the reports in his pre-match press conference today. "There are things that I can not say otherwise I will get fined".

"The truth is we have been together for two years and a couple of weeks, and I've never been so happy with him as I am now", Mourinho explained, via ManUtd.com.

'I can not demand more from him, I can not ask more from him.

"I've been here for two years and the only player to have ever been fined is Anthony Martial", he admitted.

It's now looking unlikely that Martial will leave United this summer after the club failed to bring in a replacement before the transfer deadline for English teams.

"I knew before it's not going to be easy playing against such quality teams, with big names".

Discussing Mourinho's staunch defence, Magee continued: "I don't think he likes being told what to do and those comments are too over the top in my view".

"Antonio Valencia is my captain and that was already decided", he confirmed.

"I want him to work the way he is doing and play the way he is doing and that's all that matters". I didn't ask him, I am not going to ask him.

"You have to ask him [Pogba]". "Matic and Valencia, they are training with the team since Thursday, fully fit but not yet to play or even to be selected". I don't care [about what he said after Leicester].

"They know how to play, they kept the same team, bought a few new players, the style is the same and the fact they lost the first match [against Watford] they are working for a reaction, to improve their game".

"So, you have to ask him".

"Everybody has a bad day and has little ups and downs in the performance level".

Throughout the week that has passed since the opening Premier League fixture, rumours have suggested that the World Cup victor is barely even on speaking terms with his domestic coach, an idea which Mourinho refutes.
