Pogba With A Sly Dig At Mourinho?

Manchester United superstar Paul Pogba could once again find himself in trouble with Jose Mourinho after what he said about the Red Devils' disappointing performance on the weekend.

Pogba Reveals Talk With Mourinho About His Penalty Technique

After taking the lead against Wolverhampton Wanderers early in the first half on Saturday, United were unable to put the game to bed before Nuno Espirito Santo's side equalised in the second half.

With the match ending in a 1-1 stalemate, Pogba lamented United's approach to the game, which some feel could be taken as a dig aimed at Mourinho.

"We are at home and we should play much better against Wolves," he said, according to the Metro.

"When we are at home, we should attack, attack, attack. That's Old Trafford. We are here to attack. I think teams are scared when they see Man United attacking and attacking. That was our mistake.

"Maybe the attitude should be better and we should play better because, again, we are at Old Trafford and we should just attack and press like we did against Tottenham, Liverpool, Chelsea and Arsenal last season.

"When we play like this, it's easier for us."

Asked why he thought United failed to pose more of a threat to Wolves, Pogba suggested that perhaps his manager would be better off answering the question.

"I can't tell you because I'm a player – it's not me," he added.

"I'm not the manager, I cannot say that, but obviously we should show more option of playing, but I cannot say that because I'm a player.

"That's my way of thinking – we should move better, we should move more."

Pogba and Mourinho's relationship is still believed to be strained, with the Frenchman being constantly linked with a transfer away from United.
