'There is always a but with Man United success'

Manchester United players insulted and goaded Man City stars during 3-2 victory

Jose Mourinho has told Paul Pogba to "pull up his socks" in training to realise his potential at Manchester United.

Pogba had found himself benched by Mourinho last month and the United boss believes the 25-year-old - whose future was the subject of speculation in the build-up to him spoiling City's planned title party - can be more consistent.

Pogba had put in a disappointing first half against the league leaders, but returned to the field a changed man, and scored two goals within three minutes to bring United level. I don't expect him to score two goals every week, either, but I would like him to be consistent to a certain level, ' Mourinho said. I instructed him to be fixed in a certain stage, ' acknowledged Mourinho.

"Do I expect him to score goals every match? No".

"He has to try to keep that level of stability and from that..."

There have been rumours swirling the past few weeks that Pogba's causing problems at Old Trafford, with United staff being "unimpressed" with his attitude and commitment on the training track.

Pogba's form, particularly since the January signing of Alexis Sanchez, has been one of the fascinating sub-plots of United's season with the player reportedly unhappy at the defensive responsibilities he has been asked to perform.

"We don't always get the respect we deserve", he said.

Manchester United are reportedly planning to outbid their city rivals, Manchester City to the signature of Brazil star, Fred this summer.

"One of them is that we beat every team in the Premier League this season, we won against the 19 direct opponents".

"Hopefully we finish second this season and then next time we can try and improve on that".

"If we finish second no one is going to be able to deny us the points total, and it will be hard to say anyone apart from City was better than us".

"After we lost to Sevilla in the Champions League, only a good group with good people could do what we did by winning every single match".

"Eventually, I think I would like to be a manager".
