Jose Mourinho: Why I’ve been impressed by Paul Pogba at Man United recently

Jose Mourinho reveals that he has been happy with the balance shown by Paul Pogba for Manchester United in recent weeks

Jose Mourinho has revealed that he has been happy with the “balance” Paul Pogba has shown on the pitch for Manchester United in recent games.

The French midfielder is currently getting used to life back at Old Trafford after his transfer to the club from Juventus last summer.

Pogba initially made a slow start to the season under Mourinho at Manchester United but appears to have found his feet in recent weeks to help the Red Devils push for a top four finish.

Manchester United made it back to back wins in the top flight on Saturday with a 2-0 victory over Watford at Old Trafford.

And Mourinho has lifted the lid on why he’s been happy with what he’s seen from Pogba in recent weeks for the Red Devils.

Mourinho told Manchester United’s website on Saturday: ”Paul is playing with great balance, great balance.

“These last two matches, he’s played with his brain.

“He’s recovering lots of balls and has been very good in his positional play.”
