Paul Pogba has insisted that he has no problem with Jose Mourinho despite recent speculation about a rift in their relationship.
The Frenchman has had a turbulent season, with many fans and pundits alike criticising some of his recent performances. While some of his performances have been disappointing, others have been truly fantastic, causing Jose Mourinho to demand more consistency from the £89 million midfielder.
However, speaking to french TV channel Canal+, the 25-year-old insisted that he didn’t have a problem with the Manchester United boss:
“He is the coach, he makes the decisions.
“Me, I am a player. I accept it and I have to respond on the pitch.”
“Mourinho has made me captain. He gave me the keys, the responsibilities at a great club like Manchester United.
“For the time being, I am at Manchester United and I am only thinking about the present. We are in the FA Cup final; I have a World Cup to come.
“Transfers, all that sort of thing, are not on my mind.”
The former Juventus midfielder’s form has seen him substitute and even left out of the starting lineup in a number of recent games, and asked whether Mourinho explains why he is dropped or substituted, Pogba said:
“No. It all depends on the coach – there are some who like to talk to the players.
“Mourinho, when he makes a choice, you have to accept it.”
