Strange Reason For Mourinho Benching Pogba Revealed?

With superstar Paul Pogba having been dropped to the bench for Manchester United's UEFA Champions League clash in midweek, the reason for Jose Mourinho's decision has now reportedly been revealed.

The Frenchman started on the sidelines when United hosted Young Boys at Old Trafford on Tuesday, much to the surprise of many.

However, it has now been reported by the Daily Mail that the benching was because of an apparent "lack of heart" and commitment in United's home draw with Crystal Palace last weekend.

Mourinho was said to have felt let down by Pogba's display on Saturday, but that is not the only thing that bothered the manager regarding the France star.

It is believed that Pogba had a hairdresser meet him at the team hotel on Friday night, when the club's staff feel he should have been concentrating on their game the next day.

Mourinho recently bemoaned the protection players get in this day and age, which, in hindsight, might have been a message for the Frenchman.

Pogba has played 17 matches for the Red Devils so far this season, scoring five goals and assisting a further four strikes.
