Mourinho suggests Pogba not working hard enough in training

Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho has suggested that Paul Pogba hasn’t been working hard enough in training in recent months.

The Frenchman has endured a difficult few months at Old Trafford, but returned to form in the second half of last weekend’s Manchester derby.

Pogba had put in a disappointing first half against the league leaders, but returned to the field a changed man, and scored two goals within three minutes to bring United level.

However, speaking before todays game against West Brom, Jose Mourinho has sent a message to the former world record signing, insisting he will become a more consistent player if he puts more work in on the training field.

He said: “That’s the challenge he has to put to himself — to keep a certain stability.

“Not have the good match, the so-so match and the bad match.

“I think he has to keep that stability and with that stability will appear the special match like it happened against City.

“But he really has to try to go for that stability and the first thing is stability at training level. Stability in the working week and for the last few weeks I’m really happy with him.”

The £89 million man was axed from Mourinho’s starting line-up back in February, but he returned to form while on International duty with France, scoring a superb free-kick.
