The French international has struggled to impose himself on matches recently with Squawkwa claiming he hasn’t created a single chance in five consecutive Premier League matches.
The statistic appears to suggest that Pogba’s form is down to the player himself and not a tactical issue since even if he was used in a poor system he would be able to at least create one chance.
In Mourinho’s pre-match press conference the media didn’t waste any time in asking him about his player’s form and what can he do to help facilitate the former Juventus star.
It’s clear though that the Portuguese manager didn’t have much to say and encouraged the media to ask Paul himself.
According to the Independent, Jose said: “I think he is very fine after the injury. It was a difficult injury, it was an injury that other players, other clubs, other medical assessments, they end in surgery.
“His option with the medical opinions was not to go to the surgery table and his recovery was really really good. I think he is more than fine in relation to his recovery from the injury, which is an area sometimes where you have a recurrence. In his case, not at all.
“It’s nothing to do with his injury. His recovery was good. Ask him. Ask him when you get a chance what he thinks about it. I work. It’s the only thing I can do. I cannot do anything else.”
Much has been made about how to bring the best out of Paul Pogba of late but a lot of fans have now turned on the player himself.
The talented midfielder was initially given the benefit of the doubt with many urging Jose Mourinho to use the player better.
However, after the former Chelsea man switched formations and attempted everything possible to allow Pogba his freedom, he still let the manager down.
The academy product officially lost fans after his dire substitute appearance vs Sevilla when supporters and the team needed him then more than ever before.
A disappointing performance resulted in fans condemning the team as a whole but also accepting that their star player was just out of form.
