In is first press conference since returning to Manchester, the France worldwide said, "People are looking me saying "Pogba should score goals", "Pogba should do this" - I think you are putting me like as a striker, defender and midfielder".

"People are looking me saying "Pogba should score goals, ' 'Pogba should do this" - I think you are putting me like as a striker, defender and midfielder".

I'd love to play in the games coming up and especially with the Europa League to help the team push towards the final. "We won two trophies".

"We are trying to, we are going to fight for the top four". It's in the past.

"But it seems he is still enjoying it and feeling good on the pitch".

There have certainly been signs of promise individually and collectively, but some shenanigans have rankled with onlookers.

"An example, in America the basketball players listen to music, you're in your world and they practice".

Mourinho does feel his side can win the tournament and underlined the importance of not only booking Champions League football but winning another title.

"It's a different generation, it's nothing bad".

Come Thursday, United, Mourinho and his motley crew will be hoping that the Brussels outfit can once again be the victims of a glorious episode in the Old Trafford outfit's history.

"The Europa League is the competition we can still win, so when Sergio plays in the Europa League and when we are giving him this confidence to play, it's because we know that his answer is positive".

In Jose Mourinho's first season at United, though, De Gea has been a key player though he missed United's victory at Sunderland on Sunday with what Mourinho described as a "hip problem".

They remain in the hunt for a top-four finish and Champions League qualification, however, and with 57 points from 30 games they sit four adrift of fourth-placed rivals Manchester City, with a game in hand.

"I think we have the mentality and we have to go back to the Champions League".
