“Pogba will never forgive Mourinho” Former Liverpool star claims Man United duo can never get along again

Paul Pogba

According to pundit Jamie Redknapp, Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba and manager Jose Mourinho’s relationship will never get better.

Pogba has come under a lot of criticism for his lacklustre displays at United in the last couple of months and that has seen him get dropped to the bench. The Frenchman’s poor form has seen Mourinho trust youngster Scott McTominay and throw him in for the games against Sevilla, Chelsea and Liverpool.

Despite United spending £89million in the summer of 2016, Pogba has failed to live up to the expectations and has dished out underwhelming performances lately. However, in 19 Premier League games this season, the midfielder has scored 3 goals and supplied 9 assists so far.

But there remains a constant criticism around the player that he is not performing to the standards he had set at Juventus. Pogba has endured an injury-hit campaign at Old Trafford but despite being fit, the midfielder has failed to produce strong displays on a consistent basis. Redknapp in his column for Sky Bet has suggested that it is difficult to sort out the problem.

“Pogba and Jose Mourinho have 100 percent lost trust in each other,” Redknapp told Sky Bet. “I don’t see how the issue can be resolved.

“Pogba will never forgive Mourinho for what he’s done because he’s publicly humiliated him by putting players like Marouane Fellaini ahead of him. There’s no trust there from Mourinho either.

“I think in my era you could’ve swallowed it and gone ‘that’s fine – we’ll move on’ but I don’t think that happens with players anymore.

“I think his agent will already be talking about what happens with Pogba going forward – he could move somewhere else if Mourinho stays.

“I think we’re at a critical stage in the relationship between the player and the manager – it’s a shame.”

It is still a curious case as to what the exact problem between Pogba and Mourinho is. Jose has top-class attacking players at his disposal that Pogba has been asked to play deeper, which is not exactly the position the midfielder thrives at.

I feel Pogba is United’s best midfielder without any doubt and our manager should not let the gem of a player leave Old Trafford in summer.
