Mourinho Reveals One Problem With Pogba

Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho has admitted his concern about the future of one of his stars, who has been linked with an exit at the end of the season.

Ahead of this weekend's Premier League clash at home to Brighton and Hove Albion, Mourinho told reporters: "I was not happy with his last performances".

"That was enough [to be dropped] because the others worked to have a chance". Everybody works to have a chance. "It's as simple as that", said Mourinho.

Mkhitaryan joined Manchester United in the summer of 2016 for a reported transfer fee of £26,3 million and struggled in the first few months before becoming integral in the Red Devils squad that lifted the Europa League and League Cup titles last season.

"For many weeks, the question was - why do they not play together?"

"So I would say it's on the pitch, especially on the pitch". I do not write this to be sound big-headed, just to demonstrate how far absolute belief matched with application and talent gets you. With uncertainty surrounding his position at Old Trafford, Borussia Dortmund have made it known that they would like to sign him back. We had a lot of attacking players on the pitch but we lose a bit of control in midfield.

"I think second half they lacked that discipline".

This season the former AS Monaco man has found himself in a much richer vein of form, scoring seven goals and getting four assists already. They have different kinds of qualities.

"[They are] ninth in the table, good team, hard to beat, don't concede many goals, a mixture of physicality, aggression with also quality and creativity", Mourninho said.
