Zlatan Ibrahimovic says Paul Pogba proved his worth at the World Cup

The engraver has barely finished inscribing France's name on the World Cup trophy, the thumping headaches from the morning after the night before are yet to clear, and sheer euphoria of France winning a second World Cup has yet to sink in fully. So many good players never have the change to be a world champion.

He told reporters in America as the Red Devils prepare to open their pre-season campaign: "I hope that he understands why he was very good".

But Pogba's showing at the World Cup earned praise, and United fans are hopeful the 25-year-old can carry his excellent form for his worldwide side into the club campaign.

He said he didn't try enough to keep Pogba back in 2016 when United came for him with a mega deal.

For a team managed by a man known for resilience as a defensive midfielder in his playing days, it would seem fitting that he would win the competition again - 20 years later - with a team unmistakably shaped in his image.

France faced Uruguay in the quarter-finals without the suspended Blaise Matuidi.

But the 25-year-old has proved is quality on the biggest stage of them after guiding France to World Cup glory.

Zlatan Ibrahimovic was full of praise for Paul Pogba's performance for France in Sunday's World Cup final.

Meanwhile, Mourinho said goalkeeper David de Gea, midfielder Nemanja Matic and new signing Fred are due to link up with the squad next week. He's not going to be there on the pitch, but it will be as if he was there with us.

The player showed great maturity over the last month, even going into the tournament with a regular haircut. "I think he's indisciplined, I think that's the kindest thing I can say about him". "It's not good for him, for me, for the team, for the (International Champions) cup. I really don't know".
