Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba has admitted he is still learning to adapt as he adjusts to life under Jose Mourinho.
The France international returned to Old Trafford in a £89m world-record switch this summer, but has been asked to curb his more attacking instincts in the current United set-up.
The France playmaker sealed a return to the Premier League giants in a world-record transfer this summer but has only shown glimpses of his undoubted talent.
His manager, Jose Mourinho, has opted to play the former Juventus star in various midfield positions including a deeper role.
“I try to adapt,” Pogba told the Manchester Evening News. “I am a player who would rather go forward. The coach gave me instructions, I try to follow them.
“I have to retrieve balls and make defensive efforts. It cost me a bit to play differently, much like Pirlo. I have to play, be there to recover and play more for the team.”
