Paul Pogba compared the way Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and José Mourinho have handled the Manchester United squad. In an interview broadcast this Friday by Sky Sports, the French midfielder of the Red Devils settles his accounts with the Portuguese coach.
After the verbal battle between José Mourinho and the Solskjaer clan, father and son, it is now Paul Pogba’s turn to cut a suit for the Portuguese technician. Despite a coronation in the Europa League in his first season under the orders of the “Special One” at Manchester United, the French midfielder did not seem to have fond memories of their shared adventure. The world champion regretted this Friday the management of his case, and frequent passages on the bench, by his former coach.
“What I have now with Ole is different, he wouldn’t go against the players,” said the French world champion in an interview with Sky Sports before the game against Burnley. “He would not go against the players. “
Paul Pogba quickly clarified his point: “Maybe Ole wouldn’t choose him but it’s not like he’s putting them aside, like they don’t exist anymore. That’s the difference between Mourinho and Ole. . “
Pogba doesn’t understand Mourinho’s behavior
Decisive passer last weekend during the victory of the Red Devils at Tottenham (1-3), against the new team led by José Mourinho, Paul Pogba again lambasted the lack of communication of the Lusitano coach.
“One day I had a good relationship with José Mourinho, everyone saw him. And the next day we do not know what happened, explained the midfielder of the Blues to the 78 selections. It is the strange thing that happened to me with Mourinho. I can’t explain it because I don’t even know her. “
Solskjaer closer to the players
When he arrives in a club, José Mourinho often targets one or more players in order to push them to surpass themselves. At Real it was Karim Benzema, at Tottenham it was Tanguy Ndombele’s turn. During his passage on the side of Old Trafford, the Portuguese seems to have wanted to push Paul Pogba or Luke Shaw to their limits.
“Maybe [les méthodes de Solskjaer fonctionnent] because he’s a little closer to the people, finally suggested Mino Raiola’s protege. Each coach has their own way of coaching and managing players. And as a player you have to adapt. Sometimes it doesn’t suit you and sometimes it suits you. […] Ole was very helpful to Luke. It’s been a tough season between Luke and Mourinho, and he has the quality he always had and the manager’s confidence.
