After the win, Pogba refused to comment on his relationship with Mourinho for fears of being fined saying, "There are things I can say and there are things that I cannot say otherwise I will get fined". I want him to play for the team, which he's doing, and, I repeat, I couldn't be happier than what I am.
Pogba, who has been regularly criticised for not performing like a player who cost a then world-record £89million ($113million, 99million euro) when he joined from Juventus - is said to be especially exercised by Mourinho's comparisons between his form at the World Cup and for United.
"He's working well, he's playing well, he does it for the fans and the team, and that's what I want. I can not demand more from him", Mourinho told reporters on Friday.
"He's very polite, he's very educated, he never had a fight with me", Mourinho added.
"We never had a hard - I don't know how you like to say - exchange of words".
The comments appeared to suggest disharmony at United, with the player and Mourinho reported to have a hard relationship stemming from last season, when Pogba was dropped for key games against Liverpool and Sevilla.
"You have to ask him, you have to ask him".
"Our training has been really, really good all week and we go [to Brighton] to win, obviously". "If his objective is to play for the team, for the fans, if this is the objective, he has the right for a bad match".
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".
"So, you have to ask him".
"But one day when Antonio comes back, Antonio will be the captain again".
Mourinho also stated that Matteo Darmian is not expected to leave the club, with Italy's transfer window closing on FRiday. They know how to play and they've kept the same team, they bought a few new players.
