Paul Pogba’s Consistency Starting To Improve- Jose Mourinho

Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho challenged Paul Pogba to replicate his display in the team’s second-half comeback against Manchester City every week.

Paul Pogba helped Manchester United spoil City’s title party with two goals as Mourinho’s side fought back from 2-0 down to win 3-2.

Pogba was at the centre of controversy the day before the game after Pep Guardiola claimed he was offered the chance to sign the midfielder by his agent, Mino Raiola, who declined speaking to the City manager.

Mourinho said he after the game he has not spoken to Pogba about Guardiola’s claim. But he did tell the 25-year-old he has now set the standard for himself after struggling for form at times this season.

“I didn’t even speak with him about what Pep told and what Raiola told,” Mourinho told a news conference. “I didn’t speak. I’m not interested in if it was Pep or Mino right, I’m not interested in that.

“I know that Paul played well against Swansea, I know he had a very good week of work, especially Tuesday and Wednesday, two fantastic training sessions and this game comes in that sequence.

“Of course, two goals for a midfield player in a big match like this one stays in the memory of the people, especially the fans.

“He needs that confidence because he knows, I know, he had some performances not at the level of expectation we have from Paul. But he’s improving.”
