Jesse Lingard: 'Mood in Manchester United dressing room has changed'

Neymar's £200million move from Barcelona to Paris Saint-Germain this month, dwarfed Pogba's £89m switch from Juventus to Manchester United past year.

As Nemanja Matic was winning towering headers, intercepting passes, dribbling round opponents and generally running the midfield in his first Premier League game for Manchester United, imagine what Antonio Conte must have been thinking.

"When you know the team more you know how to play alongside them".

"Your first question now was about football, but last season it was about the price, so you can see the difference", said Pogba as he spoke to reporters.


However, he says winning the English topflight is what matters most.

'Against West Ham, Matic was starting behind and I could worry more about attacking. With the experience of last season, a new manager and new players now it is the second season of Mourinho. "Matic was a key player and Romelu scored two goals so it is what we wanted and what we expect".

'It was an excellent start to the season but what matters is the end. We have started well, yet we have to carry on like this. Now I'm back and happy to be back.

The France global joined Juventus from United in 2012, but returned to the Old Trafford club last season.


"My dream was to play for this club and when I finished [in 2012], I always felt like I had missed something at Manchester United because I wasn't a first XI player". The mural, which depicts scenes from around the famous stadium, was added to by Manchester United players Paul Pogba, Michael Carrick, Jesse Lingard, Chris Smalling and Victor Lindelof.

Pogba is talking outside Old Trafford's centennial suite, where a mural by Alec Monopoly, the cult American graffiti artist, is being unveiled in conjunction with United's official watch sponsor, Tag Heuer. We've had a lot of players come in over the past few seasons, which is always good to help build the squad up and make it stronger. "We're in a lot of competitions, the more trophies the better".

By the time he was 23, Pogba was already a vital cog in one of the best teams in Europe in Juventus, and when he joined United, his arrival was greeted with jubilation from United fans.
