Graeme Souness savages Paul Pogba despite match-winning display

Absent Manchester United Player May Provide Young Star Chance To Shine In Champions League

Paul Pogba has thanked Jose Mourinho and his Manchester United teammates for letting him keep the penalty duties.

Reflecting on United's form ahead of Saturday's visit of Wolves, Pogba said: "Obviously when you win you are happier, mentally we are stronger, we get better".

"The team is more compact, more solid; the spirit, the cooperation, the empathy, the communication - all of that improves in the team and good results bring confidence". I don't want to say it was Bailly or Jones, and it's now Smalling or Lindelof.

Speaking on television yesterday after Manchester United's victory over Young Boys, in which Pogba scored two goals, Souness still could not find it within himself to praise the World Cup victor.

There would be a chance for Dalot a few days later when United take on Derby in the Carabao Cup.

"I don't speak with him [Mendes] for quite a long time to be honest, but when we speak we don't speak about my job or his job, he's my agent and that's it, but I think the work in Wolves is good because is not just about Portuguese influence, Portuguese manager, staff and players".

"To play for Manchester United is hard enough". That is most important.

United head in to the weekend action off the back of three consecutive victories in all competitions so Mourinho will be desperate to climb up the Premier League table with another three points against Wolves at Old Trafford. Asked whether this was down to the Lindelöf-Smalling partnership, Mourinho said: "No, I think the team as a team is resolving the defensive problems better than before".
