Jamie Redknapp: Manchester United must use win vs Manchester City to kick on

by Marwan Harraz

Jamie Redknapp has challenged the Manchester United squad, in particular Paul Pogba, to kick on under Jose Mourinho following their win over Manchester City.

The Manchester derby was one to remember for the red side of the town with the Portuguese manager’s team successfully completing a comeback win that’ll remain in the fans memories for a long time.

City scored twice in the first half with their supporters prematurely celebrating a title victory but United fired back in the second half to end their hopes.

Mourinho’s men were gutless in the first 45 minutes but their display after the break was an inspiring one with Pogba scoring a brace and Chris Smalling grabbing the winner.

Redknapp believes the result was an obviously important one but perhaps more so for the players to show more consistency under their manager.

According to the Sport Review, Jamie said to the Daily Mail: “Mourinho’s wars with his own players have to stop. His public criticism of Pogba over the past few months has not helped the £89m midfielder.

“Now, Mourinho and Pogba need to find a way of working in harmony because they need each other. I do not subscribe to the theory that the Frenchman is a flop.

“On his day, he can be one of the best in the country and he now just needs confidence. Pogba and his team-mates can use this win over City to kick on under Mourinho.”

If there were any players in the Red Devils’ squad who weren’t entirely convinced of Jose’s tactics or methodology then they surely would be now.

The former Real Madrid man has beaten all of the top six opposition at least once this season, proving he is the man for the big occasion.

Some fans or neutrals may not enjoy his style of football but there’s no denying that it brings results, especially in telling matches.

The result against the Sky Blues is the kind to give confidence in the players but also one that helps them trust their manager that bit more.

Just like anywhere else Jose Mourinho had to win over the players and it’s fair to say he’s done so with the crucial win.
