Jose Mourinho's Latest Interview About Paul Pogba Has Angered Manchester United Fans
How do you get the best out of Paul Pogba for Manchester United? Well, it's nothing to do with Jose Mourinho.
It's down to the player himself according to the United manager.
Pogba performed heroically for France as his side won the World Cup.
He starred under Didier Deschamps' guidance, pulling strings in the middle of the park; from scoring to creating goals.
United fans watched events transpire in Russia with hopes that he can emulate his success on the international scene at club level.
But Mourinho believes it's on Pogba to star for United while explaining why he plays better for France.

"I don't think it's about us getting the best out of him, it's about him giving the best he has to give," he told ESPN UK.
"I think the World Cup is the perfect habitat for a player like him to give [their] best.
"Why? Because it's closed for a month, where he can only think about football.
"Where he's with his team on the training camp, completely isolated from the external world, where they focus just on football, where the dimensions of the game can only motivate."
Mourinho's words angered and confused United supporters. Here's some reaction from Twitter:
What wrong with Mourinho, the season has not even started and he taking on players for no reason.

Erm isn't it kind of the managers job to get the best out of the players? :joy:
