Rooney: What Mourinho Must Do With Pogba

Manchester United legend Wayne Rooney has revealed what he believes Jose Mourinho must do with Paul Pogba at the Red Devils, following the player's recent relegation to the bench.

Mourinho Reveals Why He Benched Pogba

The Frenchman has been criticised for recent performances at United, and was even taken off by Mourinho in their 2-0 loss to Tottenham Hotspur last week Wednesday before starting on the bench in their clash against Huddersfield this past weekend.

There has been a lot of talk as to where Mourinho should use Pogba in his system, and Everton striker Rooney believes the 24-year-old would be more effective in a three-man midfield.

"For me, Paul Pogba is a classic box-to-box player. He can do a bit of everything really well," Rooney said on Sky Sports' Monday Night Football programme.

"If he has that freedom where he doesn't have to think too much about his defensive role, he can cause mayhem.

"At Juventus, he had (Andrea) Pirlo alongside him. With (Nemanja) Matic and another alongside him, on the left of a three in midfield, that will certainly get the best out of him."

Pogba has played 22 matches for the Red Devils so far this season, scoring three goals and assisting a further 10 strikes.
