Paul Pogba vs Jose Mourinho
The front page of Italian daily Tuttosport whips up tensions between Paul Pogba and Jose Mourinho.
It’s worth stating from the outset that Tuttosport have a rather lousy record when it comes to reporting accurate transfer gossip.
In that regard, Tuttosport’s suggestion on Monday that Pogba is keen to return to Juventus feels like it should be taken with a pinch of salt.
Tuttosport also link Pogba with possible move to Barcelona.
However, the main update from the Italian paper is to recycle a quote from Pogba which appears to call out Jose Mourino’s tactics at Old Trafford.
Pogba after Wolves
Last weekend Man United dropped two Premier League points in a 1-1 draw with Wolves.
After the game Pogba made the following comments:
We are at home and we should play much better against Wolves. We are here to attack.
When we play like [that] it’s easier for us. I think teams are scared when they see Manchester United attacking and attacking. That was our mistake.
Maybe the attitude should be better and we should play better because, again, we are at Old Trafford and we should just attack and press like we did against Tottenham, Liverpool, Chelsea and Arsenal last season.
