Pogba had told reporters after United’s opening premier league game against Leicester City that: “There are things I can say and there are things that I cannot say, otherwise I will get fined.”

According to Daily Mail, Berbatov believes talk of a rift between the duo is being blown out of proportion.

“I was very happy with the display of Paul Pogba against Leicester, it was a real captain’s performance,” Berbatov told betfair.

“He was everywhere on the pitch, passed it well, took the penalty with confidence – considering it was the first game, it was very encouraging.

“There has been chat in the media about him being unhappy, but I think the newspapers and social media are always focused on that side of things, trying to find problems that aren’t necessarily there, constantly exaggerating – it’s on the pitch that matters.

“These stories are not good for anybody, but Jose and Pogba will figure it out.”
