Paul Pogba

Jose Mourinho urged to play Paul Pogba in this position for Man United

Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho and midfielder Paul Pogba have been two of the biggest talked about figures in recent weeks.

That is because the relationship between the two looks to have soured somewhat in recent weeks.

The Manchester side have struggled in the Premier League over the past few fixtures, the last coming against Newcastle in which they lost 1-0.

Paul Pogba was dragged off in both of his recent games which has caused much tension between the pair.

Not only that, L’Equipe claimed on Thursday morning that the player is starting to regret even coming back to Man United.

Now, the Mirror’s Northern corrospondent David McDonnell has had his say on where the Frenchman should be played.

“We have seen in recent weeks that Pogba does not tackle that well, he doesn’t track back, he doesn’t win the ball and he is not a Matic-type player, or a Herrera who will win the ball and set attackers free,” he explained. 

“He is best probably as he was at Juventus, on the left-side of a midfield three, where he has got the licence to push forward and link up with the attackers and not be burdened with the defensive duties.

“For Mourinho, every player has to be the complete player and be able to fulfil all roles.

“But at the moment, it could take a tweak in United’s formation to maybe a 4-3-3 to actually get the best out of Pogba and release him and set him free.”
