Paul Scholes predicts Manchester United stay and captaincy

Joleon Lescott

The players have been suffering from injury and will be held out of the Manchester United squad for their second match of the Premier League season.

United will still be without usual skipper Antonio Valencia on Sunday.

Asked specifically about Pogba's claim regarding being fined, Mourinho said: "I don't care".

"He's working well, playing well, he does it for the fans, he does for the team and that's what I want, to play for the team and I couldn't be happier than what I am".

Speaking to Robbie Savage on BBC Radio 5 Live, he was asked what was going on with the latest rumour about a barney between Jose Mourinho and Paul Pogba but quickly deviated from the question. We hope he stays, every team wants to keep their best players and we want him to stay.

"There has been chat in the media about him being unhappy, but I think the newspapers and social media are always focused on that side of things, trying to find problems that aren't necessarily there, constantly exaggerating - it's on the pitch that matters".

"He's very polite, he's very educated, he never had a fight with me", Mourinho added.

"We never had a war or had, I don't know how you like to say, a change of words".

Mourinho's relationship with the French star has been under scrutiny in recent weeks with allegations of a training ground bust-up and speculation that Pogba could be moving away from Old Trafford.

"You have to ask him, you have to ask him".

"I don't think he will go", Mourinho told a news conference ahead of United's trip to Brighton and Hove Albion on Sunday.

"Of course he showed desire, he should be showing that every week anyway", he said.

Giggs, though, believes the onus is on Pogba to take more responsibility and believes Mourinho can aid his development by giving him the captaincy. "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. I can not demand more from him", Mourinho told reporters on Friday.

'For me, it's good news that Matteo is staying.

Mourinho will welcome Jesse Lingard back into his squad against Brighton, after returning from World Cup duty.
