The Portuguese boss made Pogba the world’s most expensive player following his move from Juventus in a deal believed to be worth around £89 million.
Man United have gone on to win the EFL Cup, Community Shield and Europa League, qualifying for next season’s Champions League in the process and it was a successful season even though United finished sixth in the Premier League following some disappointing results.
Speaking about Mourinho, Pogba was full of praise for his methods at Old Trafford.
“He is the Special One because he wins,” he said. “Sometimes he does some extreme things. Against Chelsea, he changed our tactical formation just before the game.
“We had never trained it before but it worked out well. That was special. He won three trophies in his first year, that’s special as well. He deserves his name.
“He’s a manager who is really close with the players. Personally, he welcomed me, we had a talk and I had a good feeling from the first moment on. He trusted and defended me. That’s all a player needs.”
Mourinho has put the foundations in place to build a solid squad and there’s no doubt he’ll be looking to bring in some more players this summer and help balance the squad to qualify for silverware.
