Pogba no longer Premier League’s ‘worst player’, jokes Man Utd boss Mourinho
Jose Mourinho quipped back at those questioning Paul Pogba’s recent form as he playfully suggested that the Frenchman’s starring role in Manchester United’s 4-1 win over Fenerbahce saw him shake off his “worst player of the Premier League” tag. The Frenchman offered the perfect response to questions about his form during a Europa League drubbing of Fenerbahce.
“Two days ago he was the worst player of the Premier League and 48 hours later he is phenomenal,” Mourinho said. “Listen, he needs time.
“I was in Italy, I have worked in Italy. I know the pace, intensity and characteristics of the league well. To be in Italy for four, five years and then come back to the Premier League is not easy. I was not expecting him to adapt with click of the fingers. Even top players need time,” Mourinho elaborated.
