Shaka Hislop: There’s no way Paul Pogba is happy under Jose Mourinho

by Marwan Harraz

Shaka Hislop has claimed there’s absolutely no way Manchester United star Paul Pogba is happy playing for Jose Mourinho.

The Portuguese manager brought the Frenchman into the club for a then world record fee in order to build his side around the player.

Mourinho’s even changed his tactics and preferred formations in order to try to accommodate the player and get the best out of him.

Pogba had a decent debut season and his second season started with a bang before he was unfortunately injured.

His inconsistencies after that saw reports emerge of a fractured relationship between player and manager and Hislop believes the former is unhappy.

According to the Sport Review, Shaka said to ESPN FC: “There is nothing about Pogba or his body language that makes you think he is happy playing under Mourinho.

“When he played for Juventus or France, there was a smile on his face. He was enjoying playing the game. He doesn’t seem to be right now.”

Paul himself has spoken of these rumours and insisted that fans shouldn’t listen to what the media makes up.

While he doesn’t paint himself as being the best of friends with Jose, he does say they have a mutual respect and has insisted there’s no problems between the two.

Either way, it appears both player and manager will be at the club next season so supporters will just be hoping both are in form in order to finally lead their team to glory with the Premier League title the main target.
