Did Mourinho Finally Address His Fallout With Pogba?

With Jose Mourinho and Paul Pogba having one of the biggest player/manager fallouts in recent times at Manchester United, did the Portuguese tactician finally address the bad blood between them on the weekend?

Mourinho Backs Ramos In Elbow Challenge On Messi

It is well-documented that the Frenchman and his former boss did not see eye to eye at Old Trafford, especially in Mourinho's final year in charge of the club.

Speaking vaguely about what occurred recently, Mourinho was careful not to address certain players directly, but admitted that things took a turn for the worse once his relationships with some Red Devils stars soured.

"If you tell me that in the past season that I had some problems... I don't want to speak about that for obvious reasons," he told beIN SPORTS.

"I will not deny to you that some factors had an influence in that the last period was not a good one. It's impossible to win trophies without a good relationship with players.

"What you need sometimes is to accelerate some process, what you need to be is to be a club man, and sometimes to be a club man, you need to forget yourself a little bit.

"I think I always did it, sometimes for the good of the immediate needs of the club and group.

"I put myself in situations that, in the eyes of people from the outside, are not the best position, but I don't regret that at all because I always give my all for the club."

Since Mourinho's sacking in December, United have climbed their way to fourth spot in the Premier League under interim boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.
