Paul Pogba has failed to hit his top game for Manchester United lately this season after a series of injuries and rumours of a rift between him and manager Jose Mourinho. The French midfielder’s agent has now floored the rumours of a rift between him and Mourinho and insisted that there is no bad blood between the pair. Pogba played in Manchester United’s 2-1 victory over Chelsea in the Premier League and was instrumental in the midfield, both defensive and offensively supporting his teammates. After making a return from injury, he had failed to create an impact and had to sit out in a few games which sparked rumours of a bust-up between him and the Portuguese manager.
Pogba started the season on a brilliant note for United scoring twice in the first two games but with time his flair has depleted. A big role in his sluggish form was of the injury which kept him away from the pitch for quite long. Reports claimed that Pogba was unhappy with Mourinho over being played in a more defensive role as he wanted a more expressive position in the side. Rumours were rife that the former Juventus midfielder regrets returning to United. But his agent Mino Raiola, clearing the air on the alleged rift has clarified that his client is not looking for a move away from the club.
“There’s no war with Mourinho, Paul wants to win with Manchester United,” Raiola was quoted as saying by the Mirror. “Of course, if things weren’t going well then I’d be ready to do my job, which is to find other solutions for the club and the player. But I don’t take anyone anywhere, I’m not a taxi or a plane,” said the agent. Pogba has been a midfield mainstay at Manchester United ever since completing his £89.3m switch from Juventus in 2016. However, he is yet to showcase his best for United.
