Jose Mourinho, Manchester United manager has defended Paul Pogba’s sluggish start to his second spell at Old Trafford.
But Mourinho says fans need to be patient with the star player, saying that Pogba had a little time to rest after Euro 2016.
Jose Mourinho said:
“Pogba was in the Euro final, no pre-season, holidays. He had a very good impact in the first game, but it’s normal that after the first game he has a little decrease.”
“But I’m full of trust with him because I know the player he is, I know he’s a very good guy with a lot of ambition so the form will come naturally and will come with the team. The team improves, Paul improves, so no problem.
“He can play where he was playing before in the Premier League, he can play where he did (against Feyenoord), there’s not a problem with his position.”
“It depends on the situation. In the Premier League we were playing with Wayne Rooney as a number 10, and we played with Schneiderlin in front of the back four (against Feyenoord) and we gave Pogba more freedom to occupy other kind of spaces.”
