His performances caught the eye of Manchester United manager, Jose Mourinho, who was trying to rebuild the club after a tumultuous period following Sir Alex Ferguson's retirement.

'I don't want to go home tonight. "We want warriors on the pitch today", Pogba said.

On the BBC, Rio Ferdinand said: "Pogba was enormous, especially in the second half when the pressure was on".
