Former Manchester United defender Wes Brown has tipped Paul Pogba to put his differences with Jose Mourinho aside and concentrate on playing well for his club.
Despite Mourinho making Pogba captain for his sides opening Premier League fixture, a 2-1 win over Leicester City, the 25-year-old’s comments after the game suggested that the pair’s relationship is still very much strained.
Pogba was also the subject of a derisory bid from Barcelona this summer, that was immediately rejected by Manchester United, although many cynics will point out that Barca probably would not have made a move for the midfielder had his camp not given the La Liga side some form of encouragement that he wanted to leave Old Trafford.
However, academy graduate Brown has insisted that now the season has started he is sure that Pogba will put his head down and focus on doing his best for the team.
“I’d like to know what he thinks he can’t say, but he is still a Manchester United player,” Brown said.
“I don’t really know too much about what’s been said or talked about but he is a Manchester United player and I am sure he is happy there.
“He scored a goal on Friday – the season has started now so he will just get his head down and play football.
“I think he is brilliant, he has to try to do his best for the team like any other player.”
