Jose Mourinho On Paul Pogba Winning The 2018 FIFA World Cup
With it having been reported that manager Jose Mourinho and Paul Pogba do not see eye to eye at Manchester United, the Portuguese tactician has now commented on the Frenchman's influence at the 2018 FIFA World Cup.
Les Bleus were crowned world champions this past Sunday, when they defeated Croatia 4-2 in the final of the World Cup in Russia.
Pogba played a huge role in France's progression through the tournament, and was on target in the final with a well-struck left-footed effort from the edge of the box.
Mourinho has now stated that he believes winning the World Cup can only have a positive effect on Pogba.
"To win the World Cup can only be a positive thing," he said, according to Marca.
"I can only imagine that is positive. It's amazing, it's fantastic. So many good players never had the chance to be world champions. I think to be world champion can only be fantastic.
"I think the future for him (Pogba) in the French national team, amongst that fantastic group of players, can only be brilliant, and I hope that he understands why he was very good."
Pogba has been linked with a move away from United in this transfer window, but the Mourinho and the club might do everything they can to keep him in England following his displays in Russia.
