Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho insisted his relationship with Ed Woodward remains strong, in what was a succinct eight-minute press conference on Friday.
United endured a frustrating summer in the transfer market as they failed to recruit the centre-half Mourinho had requested.
The United boss also wanted an additional signing - believed to be an attacking midfielder - but had to settle for the three players the club did sign - midfielder Fred, defender Diogo Dalot and goalkeeper Lee Grant.
"Of course (our relationship is fine)," the United boss said, having turned up 30 minutes early to talk with the media.
"No (problem at all)."
After the defeat to Brighton, Pogba admitted United had the wrong attitude and said he was at fault as much as anyone.
Mourinho was asked about those comments but said it was Pogba's place to explain what he meant.
"Paul said that so Paul has to answer that. If you want an explanation for Paul's words, you must get him and ask him," Mourinho said.
There is good news for United on the injury front as Mourinho confirmed captain Antonio Valencia, Nemanja Matic, Alexis Sanchez and Diogo Dalot have all returned to training.
A final decision on their availability for Monday's visit of Tottenham, live on Sky Sports, will be made on Sunday.
Mourinho said: "Today is still Friday and we will have training on Saturday and Sunday, then the match on Monday.
"The decision will be made on Sunday but yes, they are training with the team and [Diogo] Dalot also is training with the team for the first time this week so in terms of the medical department, they are almost free."
