Pogba will stay at Man Utd - Jose Mourinho

Pogba will stay at Man Utd - Jose Mourinho

Referee Jonathan Moss shows a yellow card to Manchester United's Paul Pogba, center, as West Ham United's goalkeeper Adrian gestures during the English Premier League soccer match between West Ham United and Manchester United at the London Stadium in London, Thursday, May 10, 2018. Simply, Manchester United can not sit around and be satisfied with staying in second place.

However, he accepts that United can not offload all the players he believes are not up to scratch. At least it seems the Portuguese is aware of the task ahead.

'I don't care how good the players are, it's all about experience, it's about making mistakes along the way and coming up against these players week in, week out and knowing how to prepare to play next season and the season after that.

"They were quite successful past year, winning two trophies, but coming second is definitely progress".

Mourinho has questioned the mentality of some members of his squad, saying that something "doesn't smell right" about the way they have lost to all three promoted teams this season.

"That's his job now to bridge that gap by using his expertise, whichever players he thinks can do that and he also touched on that bringing player after player in and shipping player after player out - that doesn't work".




"Some of the players I am totally convinced are going to make it, some others I have some hopes they are going to make it, and some others I don't believe are going to make it".

"Unless there is a ideal squad, where if you buy one goalkeeper you don't like, you buy another one". It is not like you always lose against the big teams because you are afraid of them or you always lose against the small teams because you don't respect them.

And Mourinho has a point.

"For me, the match against the big team is not different to the match against the small team". Versatility can be a very powerful tool, but Manchester United should guard themselves from poor decisions in the market.

He has scored five goals this campaign and provided seven assists and has played in a range of positions which Mourinho would like. "He doesn't need anything", the United tactician added on the topic of Rashford.

While Mourinho's words seem positive, they still leave room for inference that he can not guarantee that the player himself wants to stay. Changing that could be a good start.
