Having starred, and scored, in United's 2-1 victory, just four days after returning to pre-season training following his World Cup adventures, Pogba claimed: "There are things I can not say otherwise I will get fined".
"We thought, I think it was before the game against Basel, Pogba is a young guy, with a good personality, made in the academy, normally a starting line-up player, so he has the conditions to be a captain in the future".
"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", Mourinho told reporters on Friday.
Interestingly, in the reports on Thursday it was claimed that the former Juventus midfielder had fired back by telling Mourinho he pass through his agent Mino Raiola if he has any intentions to speak to him formally again.
Asked about the comment, Mourinho said: 'I don't care. He never had a fight with me. We never had a heated exchange of words, everything is respected, I have no problems at all. "I want him to work the way he's doing, for me that's the only thing that matters".
Pogba was lauded by players and manager alike for his leadership role in France's World Cup triumph and Jenas is anxious that the spat with Mourinho and speculation over the player's future could jeopardise his good form.
"So part of me goes "Paul, if you've got something to say, just say it because you've got plenty of money in the bank so you can pay the fine". Mourinho denied that was the case, however, and insisted that he has handed out one fine during his two-year spell at Old Trafford, to Anthony Martial for failing to report back to training promptly following the birth of his second...
'I don't think he will go, ' said Mourinho.
"He has the right to a bad match".
According to UK Sky Sports report many news outlets reported on Thursday that Mourinho had warned the France World Cup victor not to speak out to the media and he should request for a transfer if he is unhappy with the Old Trafford outfit.
