The France international has frequently been dropped by Mourinho and was stripped of the club’s vice-captaincy.
However, The World Cup winner has starred for United since Ole Gunnar Solskjaer replaced Mourinho at the club last month.
Meanwhile, the 25-year-old, who has shone in all six matches, has revealed he is happier on the pitch now than he was earlier this season.

“I’m enjoying playing football,” Pogba said after the win over Tottenham.
“It was really difficult playing in the system we used to play.”
“I like to be more attacking, pressing, playing high – defending is not my best attribute.”
“But where [I’m playing now] with the team, we attack and I think my position there is where I feel most comfortable. It definitely helps [having two midfielders behind me].”
“I know Matic will be there, we can press high and when we get the ball I’m already there – I can shoot, I can pass, and that’s what I’ve been doing since [Solskjaer] came.”
“I know I have security behind me and freedom to go, so obviously yes [Solskjaer has] helped me.”
