Jose Mourinho has talked up Paul Pogba’s potential at Manchester United and is backing the midfielder to shine in years to come.

The France international has been getting used to life back at Old Trafford after re-joining the Premier League outfit from Juventus in the summer of 2016.

Pogba has been a regular fixture in the Manchester United team since his return and he will be hoping to step his game up in the coming seasons as the Red Devils look to try and win the title for the first time since 2013.

Mourinho is clearly a keen admirer of the French midfielder and the Portuguese coach seems to be fully backing Pogba to develop into one of the world’s best at Old Trafford.

Speaking at a news conference on Friday at Carrington, Mourinho said: “People ask what is the best position for Paul to play – Paul is a midfield player. It doesn’t matter the tactical system the team plays, he will always be a midfield player.

“Between me and Paul there are no confusions – he is a midfield player and that’s it.

“And it is difficult to find a midfield player with more potential than Paul has. Paul has everything.”

Pogba will be hoping to feature for Manchester United when the Red Devils return to Premier League action on Sunday afternoon with a trip to St James’ Park to take on Newcastle.

The Red Devils are currently in second place in the Premier League table as they look to try and finish as close to leaders Manchester City as possible this term.
