  • Man Utd news Zlatan Ibrahimovic makes Paul Pogba prediction

French midfielder Paul Pogba gave a rousing speech to his teammates before their World Cup last 16 game against Argentina, in which he told them to "kill" the opposition and "not give a s***" about Lionel Messi.

He would not care if he his standing on the pitch at the end of the game, with a world cup medal around his neck and that golden trophy in his hands.

Paul Pogba receives criticism for his lack of leadership at Manchester United, but this is said without any insight into what goes on in the dressing room.

During France's World Cup celebrations on Sunday, Juventus midfielder Blaise Matuidi told Pogba, "Remember to come to Juventus", during a live video on Instagram.

The 25-year-old returned to Manchester United from Juventus in 2016 and had some difficulties with manager Jose Mourinho during the 2017/18 campaign. "They needed to focus on the job for their national team", Mourinho responded when asked if he kept in touch with his players during the quadrennial showpiece.

"They judge but I think the result speaks for itself".

United are in Los Angeles for their pre-season tour, and that gave Mourinho the chance to discuss his record purchase's displays.

"He has to think that, if there is not a project that makes him happy and in which he feels comfortable, it is very hard to take the responsibility of leading Argentina to become champions by himself".

Mourinho's problems have been compounded by the absence of Alexis Sanchez in America. "It's not good for me, for the team". There is no one to blame. He's not going to be there on the pitch, but it will be as if he was there with us. "I want us to have a party tonight". "We didn't want to lose him because of that and he's recovering really well and we think he can start training back in England but not ready for start of the season".

Mourinho also refused to be drawn on potential transfer targets, as he admitted he did not know whether United would make any more signings this summer.
