Paul Pogba admits to ‘small issues’ with Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho

Last season, Manchester United didn’t add any silverware to the trophy cabinet, but clear progress has been made under Jose Mourinho.

The Red Devils achieved their highest-placed finish post-Sir Alex Ferguson in 2017/18, finishing second in the Premier League table.

A key player in any success United had was Paul Pogba. The mercurial Frenchman was at the heart of our derby day heroics to prevent City winning the title against us; although those types of problems came far too infrequently for my liking.

The 24-year-old is currently at the World Cup with his native France, but during an interview, Pogba has admitted that there were small issues with the manager – presumably when Mourinho decided to drop him for a game or two after a spell of poor form.

“It was a better season than the previous one.” Pogba is quoted as saying by Sky Sports News.

“It was an experience. There were some small issues with [Mourinho], but they were nothing in the end.

“Being a substitute, that sort of thing, it helps you to grow. I have to accept it.”

I don’t think is a major issue whatsoever. As Pogba says, he just has to accept that the manager’s decision is final. Mourinho is trying to do what’s best for the team, and from time-to-time, some players are going to be unhappy; particularly when you’ve got such a huge squad at his disposal.

With the addition of Fred this summer, it seems as though United are doing all they can to put Pogba in a position to succeed. This will be his third year back at the club, and you feel that this term really is make or break for the former Juventus star.
