Pogba Reveals 'Issues' With Mourinho

France international Paul Pogba has admitted that he and Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho had their "issues" during the 2017/18 season.

Pogba Makes Shock World Cup Claim

In the final few months of that campaign, many reports suggested that the midfielder and the Portuguese tactician were not seeing eye to eye, and that the former Juventus star was considering leaving Old Trafford as a result.

Pogba, who was benched on a few occasions by the former Chelsea boss in 2017/18, has now revealed that he did have some disagreements with Mourinho during the campaign, but nothing near as bad as what the media made out.

"This year was a better season than last year as I was more decisive," the 25-year-old said, according to FourFourTwo.

"It is also true that I had a big injury. It is an experience. There were little issues with Mourinho, but they were nothing.

"These are things that make you grow. I never had a season where I was pushed aside, or they put me on the bench.

"It is also the choice of the coach, it is his job, I must accept. As I always said, the only answer is on the pitch."

Reports: Real Line Up Four Potential Replacements For Ronaldo

Pogba made 37 appearances for the Red Devils last season, scoring six goals and assisting a further 12 strikes.
