Jamie Carragher’s Man United prediction

Back in September a video of Pogba versus Mourinho went viral.

The video was recorded by Sky Sports as they filmed at United’s Carrington facilities.

Tension between Mourinho and Pogba was palpable in the video as the manager and midfielder had a staring contest.

Back at the time, Jamie Carragher predicted that even if Mourinho left United, Pogba would struggle. He argued:

I don’t know if he’s worth the hassle for what he gives on the pitch. There’s an idea that it’s one or the other.

If Mourinho goes you won’t see a new Pogba, I can assure Manchester United fans of that. 

He’s not as a good as he thinks he is. He’s got taleneht but his big problem is his understanding of the game.

It’s been a problem since he arrived and it hasn’t changed now.

Jamie Carragher admits he was wrong

Carragher has now admitted that prediction was wide of the mark.

The former Liverpool centre-half revealed his updated thinking on Pogba on Twitter.
