I never had one single problem with Pogba – Mourinho
Manchester United Manager, Jose Mourinho has stated that he is shocked about the number of speculations going on as regards his relationship with record signing, Paul Pogba as he insists that he has an incredible relationship with the midfielder.
The former Juventus man has been subject to intense criticisms about his role in United loss to Tottenham a few days ago, a game which saw him substituted. It is a rare sight to see the French Man replaced in matches. Shockingly, he was entirely dropped for the club’s win over Huddersfield.
Club Legend, Giggs had insisted that the club management is still having issues as to where to best use the player, he said he will be most effective in an attacking role while another club legend, Wayne Rooney believes that he will fit more as a box-to-box midfielder.
“Paul had a very professional behaviour and this week was not different to what Paul is every week,” Mourinho told correspondents on Friday.
“Paul is a good professional, Paul works well, Paul likes to train. I never had one single problem with him regarding his professionalism because he really is a very good trainer, one of the guys who like to train, enjoys to train.”
The former Inter Milan Manager continued by stating that he doesn’t understand why people keep bothering themselves as to Paul’s best role in the team.
“For me, Paul is a midfield player,” said Mourinho. “He’s not a left back, he’s not a striker, so when people say what’s his best position for Paul to play. Paul is a midfield player.”
“It depends on the tactical system the team plays. You can play with two, with one, play with three. But he will always be a midfield player. It doesn’t matter the tactical system the team plays, Paul is a midfield player.
“And as a midfield player, it’s difficult to find a midfield player with more potential than Paul has because Paul has everything.”
