After the 1-0 defeat of Manchester United against Newcastle United, Paul Pogba was criticised for his performance. Jamie Redknapp believes that the Frenchman is misused by manager José Mourinho. He thinks that Pogba under Josep Guardiola would play the stars of heaven.
I can’t believe that we are in such a situation, because when he was sent off from the field against Arsenal everyone came up with statistics that Manchester United can’t do without him. Everyone said that he was indispensable, but now he is suddenly useless. When things go well, he is the best player in the world. Otherwise he will be killed simply because of his price tag,”says Redknapp to Sky Sports.
I think Mourinho bears responsibility for Pogba, it is his work. Everyone expects a player with confidence, but I think he should be loved too “, continues the old midfielder of Liverpool and Tottenham Hotspur, among others,” You saw against Newcastle that his trust is very low. I do not see a situation in which Guardiola would deal with him that way. Had he played with Manchester City, he would have been one of the star players. I just think that Mourinho can’t get the best out of him.
Pep is the type of manager that would put him in the field, but Mourinho will get him off sooner. This is not just a boy he has to deal with, but one of the biggest players in the world. Mourinho is now asking for a war with his current players. With Pogba’s power in the locker room, Mourinho must be very careful. I don’t see any advantage in putting the star player against you,”concludes Redknapp.
