Paul Pogba Gives Insight Into Dressing Room Following Spurs Defeat
Paul Pogba has spoken out after Manchester United's defeat to Tottenham Hotspur in the Premier League.
Man United have had an awful start to their campaign, and it's not like no one saw it coming. Jose Mourinho was unable to bring in a first-choice centre-back over the summer, while his relationship with some of the players have become fraught at best.
I didn't particularly want Mourinho to be Utd manager, I haven't particularly enjoyed Mourinho being Utd manager, and I wouldn't be arsed if Mourinho stopped being Utd manager. But I don't hold Mourinho responsible for the mess at Utd because it predates him and will outlast him.- Daniel Harris (@DanielHarris) August 28, 2018
The thing that really strikes me about the "Three Premierships" line Mourinho used last night is that it's something he's clearly thought about. Gone through the league table to check, wheeled back to 1992 to make sure he's right, smiled in delight at this arcane piece of trivia.- Rory Smith (@RorySmith) August 28, 2018
You just know Mourinho's been waiting to use that 'three titles' line for years but couldn't until Wenger quit.- Ben Rumsby (@ben_rumsby) August 27, 2018
Since he's been at Old Trafford since leaving Juventus for a then world record figure,, Pogba has been a contentious figure. Some games, he shows off his breathtaking ability, others he looks lost and like he doesn't want to be there.
There were rumours that Pogba could head to Barcelona, but those suggestions have appeared to have faded.

At Old Trafford last night, in Man United's defeat to Spurs, it wasn't Pogba's greatest performance, and it wasn't Man United's either.
After the game, Pogba didn't shy away. He spoke to the press and had this to say about the game, via the Mirror:
"Even we don't understand what happened," said Pogba. "We started the game really well, we conceded two goals in the second half.
"The first goal was a real blow, we didn't understand why, because we had the game in hand. One goal, then two, but we kept pushing, we had chances, and then we conceded the third.
"But the fans kept pushing us, they were really behind us. We feel really sorry for them, very disappointed, we wanted to do better.
"I think it was an undeserved defeat for us, in our desire, in everything we put into it. But football can be cruel. We just have to bounce back."
