Pogba's relationship with Mourinho has been a hot topic in recent months, and the midfielder was linked with an exit form Old Trafford before the season began.

However, the Frenchman bagged a brace and an assist as the Red Devils defeated Young Boys 3-0 in Switzerland on Wednesday night, and Mourinho had nothing but praise for the player after the match.

"He felt tired in the last part of the game but it was a good performance," Mourinho told BT Sport. 
 
"(He was) solid, class and gave the team the pace we needed at times. He controlled the tempo and, of course, it was a very good goal."

With Pogba having scored his second strike from the penalty spot, Mourinho also shared his thoughts on the former Juventus star's approach to spot-kicks.

"The penalty showed his personality as when you miss one, you normally have doubts, but there were no doubts from him."
