Paul Pogba has admitted that he had ‘minor issues’ with Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho last season.
Speaking ahead of France’s final World Cup group match against Denmark on Tuesday, Pogba has admitted that there was a slight hiccup between the midfielder and his manager last season, particularly around the time when Pogba was dropped for several matches at the turn of the year, but has stressed that it was nothing to be unduly worried about.
“It was a better season than the previous one.
“It was an experience. There were some small issues with [Mourinho], but they were nothing in the end.
“Being a substitute, that sort of thing, it helps you to grow. I have to accept it.”
The club’s record signing was the subject of transfer speculation earlier in the season amid reports of a turbulent relationship with Mourinho, but that appears to have since died down.
Pogba provided ten Premier League assists and scored six goals last season as Man United finished second to rivals Manchester City.
On the international front, his France side have already secured a place in the knockout stages, and will win the group if they avoid defeat in the clash with Denmark in Luzhniki..
