French boss Deschamps: Pogba and Mourinho Man United Feud ‘exaggerated’
France coach Didier Deschamps says the tension between Manchester United star Paul Pogba and boss Jose Mourinho has been “exaggerated”.
Despite managing to keep hold of the Frenchman during the summer transfer window, Pogba and Mourinho have once again been in the headlines for all the wrong reasons this season, with the special one not happy with the midfielders performances.
The pair even had a frosty exchange on the training pitch last month, with the United manager also involved in a vice-captaincy debate surrounding the midfielder.
But Deschamps has claimed that the situation between the two egotistical men has been exaggerated, telling Sky Sports: “I think that it is exaggerated. Maybe you didn’t watch the last game because I saw a great Paul Pogba.
“I think that Jose Mourinho saw the same thing as me. Some things happened, and I think that like often, we make a big deal of maybe not so much.
“When I see how Paul behaves towards his current club situation some may say that he’s done everything he could mentally and when it comes to his individual performances to help the club.”
Here is what we think on the Pogba and Mourinho situation at Old Trafford.
This is a story that is getting old as Mourinho and United should have sorted out the Pogba problems, especially since he is one of the biggest players at Old Trafford.
So the hierarchy need to step up and sort this, as Mourinho and Pogba have the kind of egos which will not allow them to give in and move on.
