Jose Mourinho has cryptic message for Paul Pogba after World Cup win

Jose Mourinho and Paul Pogba

He also scored a attractive third goal to move the game out of Croatia's reach, before France finally clinched their second World Cup with a 4-2 win.

"We came to win this f*****g World Cup!"

"He is young. He won the World Cup, he was in the Champions League final (with Juventus), the Europa League final (with United), the European (Championship) final (with France) - and he won many titles at Juventus".

"I hope that he understands why he was very good", Mourinho said.

Rami added that he was "incredibly happy" and "still could not believe" that they had won the World Cup.

Paul Pogba played 539 minutes in 6 matches in the World Cup - predominantly as part of a midfield two alongside the equally prodigious N'Golo Kante - as his partner in crime.

Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho has issued club-record signing Paul Pogba a clear challenge ahead of next season after helping France reign victorious at the 2018 FIFA World Cup.

The squad is unchanged from their starting XI against Belgium, with Blaise Matuidi recovering from an injury in semi-final to retain his place in the final.

Manchester United are in no mood to sell one of their prized assets and are not expected to entertain any approach for Pogba in the last few weeks of the transfer window.

Pogba's prospective new midfield partner Fred will join up with United's squad in the US next week, while fellow new recruit Diogo Dalot is out until September with a knee problem.

The player has not been consistent at Old Trafford, while earlier reports claimed that the midfielder and Mourinho clashed in the dressing room.

The player showed great maturity over the last month, even going into the tournament with a regular haircut. He's not going to be there on the pitch, but it will be as if he was there with us.

The pads also had a poignant message written on them, which read: "Oh Lord, do not chastise me for what they say. I really don't know".
