'Don’t Write Lies About Me & Pogba', Mourinho Begs
Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho has made a passionate appeal to all to write only what is true about him and his star player Paul Pogba.
Mourinho on the official Man United website on Friday said there are no problems between him and Pogba who was given the captain's armband for the opener against Leicester City, and will continue to lead the team at the weekend, in the continued absence of Antonio Valencia.
Speaking at his press conference ahead of the trip south, Jose was happy to set the record straight regarding the situation with the World Cup-winning French star and emphasise the level of respect between the pair.
“He's working well, he's playing well, he does [it] for the fans, he does [it] for the team and that's what I want. I want him to play for the team, which he's doing, and, I repeat, I couldn't be happier than what I am.”
The manager added: “He's working extremely well here. But, I have to say, in his defence, write what you want about him, write what you want about me, but please don't say lies. Please don't put him in a situation where people can think that he's not a polite, educated guy, which he is.
”He's very polite, he's very educated, he never had a fight with me. We never had a warm or hard, I don't know how you like to say, exchange of words. Everything is respected. I have no problems at all.“
Before now, there were reports suggesting that Pogba is reconsidering his future at Old Trafford and was mulling a move to Barcelona.
