Jose Mourinho showed his disappointment over the club's transfer activity this summer again as he said he should be described as Manchester United's "head coach" rather than manager. Jose Mourinho certainly thinks so.
Having supposedly missing out on Ivan Perisic last summer, United were also unable to land a winger this summer, while also missing out on the chance to sign any of the five central defenders that they were linked with in the last week of the transfer window.
The World Cup victor was sublime but with Mourinho openly criticizing him in the past and now exactly praising him for helping France to World Cup glory this summer, Pogba doesn't seem that happy at Old Trafford.
Mourinho is believed to have clashed with United's hierarchy over the profile of transfer targets, with the likes of Toby Alderweireld, Jerome Boateng and Diego Godin considered too old by the board.
This was Manchester United playing at home in their first league game of the season. "There are things I can not say otherwise I will get fined".
"If he upsets too many players because of his way, then ultimately he will lose his job like he did".
Jose Mourinho will be sacked if he fails to stop falling out with his players, according to Alan Shearer.
"Every time you see him now, he's frowning, he's angry, he wants to row with everyone".
Still, his relationship with Mourinho - who dropped the player on more than one occasion last season, including for a Champions League knockout tie against Sevilla - led to Pogba being questioned over whether he is happy at United. "He got the captaincy and played very well, but Mourinho will have noticed the line and there will always be a response, because there always is".
"That's the main thing, get the players in".
But club bosses hope a change in structure will relinquish the focus on the manager and provide a blueprint and style for signing players irrespective of who is in the dugout.
But the 24-year-old has moved to dismiss those claims ahead of his Liverpool debut on Sunday.
"Lindelof had a few really good games", Murphy told Sky Sports' The Debate.
