Jose Mourinho praises Paul Pogba's 'great influence' on Man United

Jose Mourinho praises Paul Pogba's 'great influence' on Man United”

"Pogba is not my player, so I don't need to talk too much about him. It's always better to have a full team". "It's not a problem for me if he works like he always does, and he doesn't score goals but for their self-esteem and self-confidence strikers want to score goals and he wasn't doing that for a few matches and I know that can affect a striker's confidence, so I was really happy that he scored that goal". "Today was a game where we were doing really well, but as soon as they scored the second goal it was really hard". But the real focus was the return of the main man himself - Pogba. Romelu Lukaku even ended his goalless drought with his friend's return to the starting XI.

United are a completely different team with Pogba in the side. It's what the Red Devils have missed the past two months as City have opened up an eight point lead atop the table.

He now has the chance to deliver on those promises, with United welcoming added competition within their ranks.

Mourinho - who revealed he allowed Pogba to decide how many minutes he played - feels the presence of the 24-year-old made a telling difference to the way the team performed, particularly in attack.

The 36-year-old was initially expected back around Christmas at best, but he insists that he did not rush his recovery and is delighted to be back playing again.

That today's match against Newcastle United was Lindelöf's first Premier League start serves to underline just how disappointing the centre-back's start to life at Old Trafford has...

That said, Lingard in particular will probably have a few choice words for his pal as he seemingly did not know the footage featuring him in his boxers would be broadcast for Anthony Martial's 4.5 million followers.
