Paul Pogba Has More Premier League Goals Under Solskjaer Than He Managed Playing For Mourinho This Season

Paul Pogba Has More Premier League Goals Under Solskjaer Than He Managed Playing For Mourinho This Season

Paul Pogba, like many of the Manchester United players, has been completely and utterly rejuvenated under the tutelage of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

And one statistic in particular highlights the difference in performance levels from the World Cup winner than what he was producing under Jose Mourinho.

In 14 league games under Jose Mourinho this season, Pogba scored three goals and all of them were penalties.

In just three games under Solskjaer, who has freed him up, the former Juventus midfielder has struck four times while also chipping in with three assists.

Pogba bagged a brace against Huddersfield at Old Trafford on Boxing Day and followed it up with another double in the first-half against Bournemouth today - scoring twice in successive games for the first time in 296 games as a professional.

He really has been given a new lease of life under United's caretaker basis, who worked with him during his time in the reserves and is getting the best out of him at first-team level - something Mourinho was certainly not able to do after splashing £89 million on him in 2016.

The pair's relationship seriously soured over time and Pogba was regularly demoted to the bench, notably in Mourinho's last game in charge - a 3-1 defeat at Anfield that proved to be the final nail in the coffin for him.

Was Mourinho the problem?

Sound off in the comments.
