Didier Deschamps: Jose Mourinho and Paul Pogba feud ‘exaggerated’

Mourinho and Pogba

France manager Didier Deschamps claims any rumours of a feud between Jose Mourinho and Paul Pogba are greatly exaggerated.

Mourinho and Pogba’s relationship is thought to be at breaking point.

However, Deschamps noted that he thinks Pogba has been playing well, and any claims the midfielder and Mourinho can’t work together are false.

Sky Sports report he said: “I think that it is exaggerated. Maybe you didn’t watch the last game because I saw a great Paul Pogba.

“I think that Jose Mourinho saw the same thing as me. Some things happened, and I think that like often, we make a big deal of maybe not so much.

“It’s true that there are some facts, and some may have jumped to certain conclusions.

“When I see how Paul behaves towards his current club situation some may say that he’s done everything he could mentally and when it comes to his individual performances to help the club.”

Pogba’s ambitions

Pogba’s own future may lie outside of Manchester United.

The midfielder has made many hints over joining Barcelona.

He of course wants to be the best player he can be.

Currently, it looks like United would be lucky to get into the top four.

Winning trophies like the Champions League and Premier League look ambitious at best.

That could drive Pogba from the club.

He’s already won the biggest trophy in world football with France, and will want to do the same with his club.
