Paul Pogba says Manchester United 'want to win everything' in terms of silverware this season and get the club back to where it belongs.
The midfielder made a big money move back to Old Trafford last summer and helped the club to League Cup and Europa League glory, with the latter securing them a spot back in the Champions League.
But with a sixth place finish in the Premier League and a quarter-final exit in the FA Cup, Pogba says the team are aiming to win it all this season and get United back to being regular multiple-trophy winners.
"What's a good season? Winning everything! We are Manchester United and we want to get back to being the big Manchester United," he told Nissan Super Sunday ahead of their clash with West Ham live on Sky Sports this weekend.
"We want to win more trophies and do better in the Premier League and we're obviously happy to be back in the Champions League. We're here to do great things.
"Do I have to be more of a leader? No, I'm just myself. I'm the same, talking, encouraging players. I'm 24 now but when you are on the pitch there is no age.
"When I was young I was doing the same. A good season for me? Winning everything! A player has a great season when the team does great. That's it."
There have been three new arrivals at United so far this summer, including Pogba's friend Romelu Lukaku who made a £90m move from Everton, and the Frenchman is backing the players to succeed.
"He's [Lukaku] had a good pre-season. Scoring goals, that's what we were expecting. [Nemanja] Matic, you can see he's been working hard," Pogba added.
"He's settled in the team like he was there for the whole of pre-season. We're happy. Victor [Lindelof], too, you can see his quality straight away. We have a very good group.
"We [Lukaku and Pogba] talked about it last season, wondering if one day we would play together and it's happened this season so I'm very happy. We all are. We have a good relationship."
