Jose Mourinho Criticises Wayne Rooney For Criticising Paul Pogba

Jose Mourinho Criticises Wayne Rooney For Criticising Paul Pogba

The United manager dropped Pogba from the starting line-up for the 2-0 win over Huddersfield Town last Saturday, but Mourinho insists that he has a good relationship with the Frenchman.

Mourinho, in fact, claims that the 24-year-old is still far from the finished article and has much of his potential still to fill.

"I got a little bit confused with some comments from important people in football".

"Paul had a very professional behaviour", Mourinho said. If our players continue the good work at Tyneside, I don't see why we can not return home with all three points. It means that you have to defend well in this box, you must have the physical condition, the desire, the intensity, the stamina to go until the other box.

"He has been, for a few months, free of minor injuries that can stop [a player's] evolution and I'm really happy [with him]".

The Red Devils remain the closest challengers to Premier League leaders Manchester City but with the gap at 13 points with 10 games remaining, the Portuguese has already conceded second is the best United can hope for this season. "That's a box in the box and stay in the box and doesn't move from the box!"

Joselu could also return after missing the draw against Crystal Palace last time out due to a virus, per Lee Ryder at the Chronicle. "I think nowadays, with some pundits, some agents, some family members, I think the concept of the box-to-box is changing a little bit".

"But I just think - midfield players".

The United manager also heaped praise on Luke Shaw, claiming that he is really with the left-back and that the player deserves a new contract at United. "It depends on the tactical system the team plays - he can play with two, he can play with one, he can play with three [midfielders] but he will always be a midfield player. A midfield player with more potential than Paul is hard to find because Paul has everything".

He added: "But I don't want attacking players, so don't speak about attacking players that are coming here, because nobody is coming here".
