Reports: Manchester United Stars Held Meeting With Jose Mourinho Over Paul Pogba

By Kurt Buckerfield - Feb 15, 2018 05:45 PM @KurtLaduma

It has been reported that several Manchester United stars have met with Jose Mourinho to discuss the current situation with superstar Paul Pogba.

Salah: Why I Flopped At Mourinho's Chelsea

The 24-year-old has received heavy criticism in recent weeks, and has even found himself on the bench and being substituted in recent games.

Many fans and pundits alike believe Pogba would be better suited to a three-man midfield rather than the current two-man midfield, in order to stop him from having to make tackles and track runners.

Pogba’s defensive frailties were exposed in United’s 2-0 loss to Tottenham Hotspur three game weeks ago, while in their previous match against Newcastle he was anonymous.

According to Manchester Evening News, some players at United have made their concerns known to Mourinho about the current situation, although they are not against the manager’s recent decisions.

It is believed that there are other players in the side who feel they should line up with three in midfield to get the best out of Pogba.

The France international excelled in that system at Juventus, which has left many with the opinion that he is being wasted in his deeper role.

Pogba has played 23 games for the Red Devils this season, scoring three goals and assisting a further 10 strikes.

Where do you think Mourinho should use Pogba at United? Let us know in the comments section below.

nou sell Pogba he's bit lazy n get mousa dembele,, typical box to box player, I understand yo frustration with pogba he's only good when he has the ball, n he has a tendency on holding to the ball when is team is on the break n when he loses the ball he doesn't fight back,, I love the boy but he doesn't justify the price tag that he carries

The same is happening at chiefs with Maluleka if we were playing him in a more advanced role he would give us more like he did at his previous two clubs. But coaches like Mou Conte and Khompela always go to games with a mentality of not wanting to lose games while the likes of Pep always go for the kill no matter who's the opponent..

Mourinho don't like players who are only offensive. He demands both offence and defence hence the good players he let go that everybody thought were good, especially when at Chelsea. That is his philosophy.

@MSANDROTIC -you noticed the way I saw things to man utd. Alex doesn't suit the style of the team even making player like Pogba not to perform as he's running all over the field. #Alex must be bench enter as sub.

Mourinho force to use Sanchez while he is not adapted to The Red Devils style of play, yes he is a good player but you mustn't put him on the starting lineup until he get Man United style of play
