Pogba breaks silence on 'rift' with Mourinho, speaks on his future

  • Jose Mourinho

Ask the coach if you want to know why I play less. We deserve to finish second in spite of what you can say, the criticisms you can make.

Jose Mourinho had mixed emotions following Manchester United's 2-0 win over struggling Swansea at Old Trafford on Saturday.

Mourinho again praised the efforts of Romelu Lukaku, who broke the deadlock five minutes in with his 100th Premier League goal.

On his desire to play alongside the best players in the world: "Neymar?"

"It's not me who makes the team".

However, with England global Jesse Lingard in magnificent form and having a hand in both goals, United had settled this game inside the opening 20 minutes.

But speaking to Telefoot, Pogba made it clear the pair are on good terms and that there is no thought in his head about leaving Old Trafford (h/t Chris Burton of Goal). 'Team played very well in the first half, he played very well in the first half.


Meanwhile, in certain situations, Mourinho could undoubtedly provide a better tactical platform to bring the best out of one of the Premier League's finest talents.

"They (Swansea) didn't cross the halfway line, they didn't have one shot". We are going to fight in every match.

"This isn't a game, this is our living and we need to win, and I think Paul's got to get that a bit more into his character".

Both Chris Smalling and Phil Jones have performed way below expectations this season, while Victor Lindelof has had a most challenging first season since making the move to England from Benfica.

Pogba returned to United from Juventus for £89 million in 2016 and won the Europa League and League Cup last season.

The goalless draw at Anfield earlier this season was the nadir of Mourinho's bus-parking career, yet it is hard to imagine he will not be tempted to do likewise against City.
