Paul Pogba wants Jose Mourinho to change the formation Manchester United play, according to the usually reliable Duncan Castles, writing for the Daily Record.
The world-class Frenchman feels his ability to perform has been extremely limited, due to the system that Mourinho currently adopts at Old Trafford. Clearly, he’s not happy and he wants that addressed.
Perhaps this has something to do with the fact that Pogba hasn’t been undroppable recently. He was a substitute against Huddersfield Town, while also being taken off against both Tottenham Hotspur and Newcastle United.
As we all know, United have been playing a 4-2-3-1 formation, which doesn’t give Pogba the freedom that he’d like, as it often means the former Juventus man would have to track back and do the dirty work.
Although no system is directly mentioned by Castles, you’d imagine that Pogba wants a move to a 4-3-3, which would allow the shackles to be taken off and do what he does best.
I agree, sort of… Pogba is an elite player and he should have the ability to perform at a high level in any system. Take a look at Paul Scholes, for example. He could play as a #10, a box-to-box midfielder or even a deep-lying playmaker. In all honesty, I just wish the £89million man would stop making excuses and concentrate on doing what he does best.
