The Manchester United midfielder has been struggling in recent weeks and has found himself in and out of the first team at Old Trafford after failing to produce consistent form.
Pogba was dropped from the starting line-up for Manchester United’s 2-0 FA Cup win over Brighton and Hove Albion last weekend along with Alexis Sanchez.
The 25-year-old has been failing to deliver consistent performances for the Red Devils in recent weeks and there have been suggestions of a rift between player and manager.
However, Drogba, who knows Mourinho well from his spells at Chelsea FC, insists that Drogba wouldn’t been pointing the finger at the France international if he didn’t rate Pogba highly.
Drogba is quoted as saying by the Daily Star: “It’s been hot between us.
“But Jose is never going to attack people he does not like.
“He likes Paul a lot. That’s why he’s given him a lot of responsibilities.”
Pogba will be hoping to feature for Manchester United when the Red Devils return to Premier League action after the international break with a home clash against Swansea City.
The Red Devils are currently in second place in the Premier League table as they chase Champions League qualification for next season.
