Portuguese head coach Jose Mourinho isn’t the right manager to bring out the best from Manchester United record signing Paul Pogba, as per Ian Wright
Ian Wright doesn’t trust manager Jose Mourinho can get the best out of midfielder Paul Pogba.
The France international is facing a dubious future at the club following a troublesome second campaign under Portuguese manager Jose Mourinho.
Paul Pogba has been linked with a potential transfer to La Liga giants Real Madrid, while his agent, Mino Raiola has reportedly offered the 25-year-old midfielder to Ligue 1 side Paris Saint-Germain.
The £89m-rated Frenchman has attempted to hold down a spot in Jose Mourinho’s starting lineup because of his unconvincing performances in the midfield playing alongside Nemanja Matic.
Paul Pogba was named in United’s starting eleven for either leg of the teams 2-1 loss to La Liga outfit Sevilla in the Champions League round of 16 last month.
Asked whether the former Real Madrid boss is the right man to get the best out of the former Juventus midfield maestro, Ian Wright told Sky Sports:
“So far, you can’t say that he (Mourinho) is. It’s fascinating to know how it will work out for him (Pogba).”
United brought in Pogba in a record £89m fee from Serie A Champions Juventus in the 2016 summer.
The Red Devils sold the Frenchman to the Italian giants in a £800,000 deal in 2012.
Man United brought in Chile international Alexis Sanchez from North London club Arsenal in a direct swap deal in the winter transfer window.
