Paul Pogba has criticised former Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho’s methods, saying that he went against his own players.
Paul Pogba slams Mourinho
Jose Mourinho brought the Frenchman back to Old Trafford for a second spell, investing a record-breaking 89 million pounds to sign him from Juventus.
The team captured three trophies in a rather successful 2016-17 season. Still, a once-productive working relationship between a superstar player and a high-profile coach broke down, and Pogba is among those that have been forced to start afresh under Solskjaer.
The world cup winner was not the only prominent figure at United to find themselves benched and subjected to public criticism from Mourinho.
Luke Shaw ended up in a similar position, with the left-back reborn under Solskjaer admitting that he found the going tough under the former Chelsea and Real Madrid boss.
The midfielder believes Solskjaer’s approach, which stands in stark contrast to that of his predecessor, is rewarded because he inspires confidence in those at his disposal.
