'Jose Mourinho Is Doing This To Paul Pogba Because He Likes Him'

By Kurt Buckerfield - Feb 23, 2018 05:29 PM @KurtLaduma

Jose Mourinho and Paul Pogba are reportedly not seeing eye-to-eye at Manchester United, but it has now been claimed the Portuguese is harsh on the midfielder because he likes him.

Reports: Pogba's Agent Pushing For Move

The Frenchman is currently undergoing a difficult time at the Red Devils, where he has recently found himself on the bench due to poor form.

William Gallas, who played under Mourinho at Chelsea, believes the manager is trying to get a positive reaction from Pogba, as he feels he can perform far better.

“Whether it was me or other players, he always used to sting”, the former defender told French broadcaster SFR.

“But if he stings you, it’s because he likes you and he wants you to be at your 100 per cent.

"He is doing that to Pogba because he knows he can do a lot better and it’s going to make him react.”

Pogba has played just 154 minutes of Premier League football in United’s last three games, while he came on as a first-half substitute for the injured Ander Herrera in the UEFA Champions League on Wednesday.

Mourinho Explains Why Pogba Was Dropped Again

United take on Chelsea this weekend at Old Trafford, where Pogba will be hoping to impress.
