Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba has blast his former boss Jose Mourinho, stating he’s difficult to work with.
Pogba in his interview with skysports.com expressed what he feels about the Portuguese tactician and the difference between him (Mourinho) and Ole Gunna Solskjaer.
Pogba said, “We won the game, he [José Mourinho] lost the game and doesn’t want to speak about the game. He wants to speak about the dad of someone, that’s what he does. You know, everybody knows him. It’s very Mourinho.”
“What I have now with Ole is different [to José Mourinho], he wouldn’t go against the players. He wouldn’t go against the players. Maybe Ole wouldn’t pick them [a player], but it’s not like he puts them on the side like they don’t exist anymore. That’s the difference between Mourinho and Ole.”
“Once I had a great relationship with Mourinho, everybody saw that, and the next day you don’t know what happened. That’s the strange thing I had with Mourinho and I cannot explain to you because even I don’t know. So, yeah.”
“Maybe [Solskjær’s methods work] because he is a bit closer to the people. Every coach has their own way to coach and deal with players, and as a player you have to adapt. Sometimes it doesn’t suit you and sometimes it does.”
“Ole has helped Luke [Shaw] a lot, it was a difficult season with Luke and Mourinho, and he has proved he has the quality he always had and the trust of the manager.”
“We got the result we wanted, Ole knows it and we enjoyed that moment because we know Mourinho and we know what he likes. We don’t need this [war of words], we just focus on us.”
