Jose Mourinho has rebuff every rumour claiming he has fallen out with his most expensive player Paul Pogba.
Rumours in the English press on Wednesday night suggest Jose Mourinho is no longer in good term with Pogba after both were seen in a heated argument on the touchline during a match against Tottenham.
This took place after United were two goals down to Tottenham at Wembley on Wednesday night.
Pogba’s heated argument with his boss and subsequent action by Mourinho to substitute him for the first time due to tactical reasons spark up rumours that there could be bad blood between the two.
Speaking in a press conference ahead of Saturday game against Huddersfield, Mourinho downplayed any beef between Pogba and him, while insisting the 24-year old star must concentrate on improving his game.
“In the first-half, with some injury, he came to me and came with a couple of questions I answered,” Mourinho explained.
“In the second-half I decided to make a change and bring Fellaini with different qualities than him.
“To try to be stronger in midfield with Fellaini and [Nemanja] Matic because I wanted Alexis [Sanchez] to play as a second striker with [Romelu] Lukaku.
“It was just a tactical decision but I lost Fellaini too after a few minutes.
“He [Pogba] is a young player, below 25, of course he has some things to improve. But it is not Paul, it is every player.
“Every player has a chance to improve until the end of his career, especially the ones below 26, 27. They always have areas to improve.”
The powerful box-to-box midfielder is expected to keep his place in the Red Devils starting xi as his team welcomes Premier League new boys Huddersfield Town to Old Trafford this afternoon.
