Paul Pogba On Jose Mourinho: “We Don’t Have To Be Friends”

share on:

Paul Pogba says he and Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho do not need to get along, telling Canal+ that “a coach and a player don’t have to be best friends.”

The 2017-18 season was punctuated by friction between the pair with Pogba playing a cameo role at times — notably in the UEFA Champions League round-of-16 defeat to Sevilla.

“There were times when I wasn’t playing, I was on the bench,” Pogba said. “People talked about it a lot. They thought things weren’t going well, but a coach and a player don’t have to be best friends. We don’t have to go to a restaurant together.

“I had some little niggles, too. … Football is all in the head. He put me on the bench, I respond on the pitch, I give my all every time.”
