Paul Pogba has insisted that there is no rift between himself and Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho.

The France international’s performances for Manchester United have come under the spotlight recently due to his stuttering form for the Red Devils.

Pogba started last season strongly, but his form tailed off towards the middle part of the season and he was criticised for failing to produce consistent performances for Mourinho’s side.

There have been suggestions that Pogba could have fallen out with Old Trafford boss Mourinho over his role in the team, but the France international has appeared to quash those reports.

Asked by France Football whether there is a problem with Mourinho, Pogba replied: “I am not the coach.

“You will have to see with him. He made his choices. Have I had talks with him? Not necessarily. He took me off, like that. Like I said, I do my job he does his.”

Pogba, who rejoined the Red Devils from Juventus back in 2016, will be hoping to help Manchester United mount a serious Premier League title challenge next season as they bid to try and beat Manchester City to the title.

The Red Devils have not won the top-flight trophy since their famous final triumph under Sir Alex Ferguson back in 2013, and they ended last season without any silverware.

Manchester United did reach the FA Cup final, but they were beaten 1-0 by Chelsea FC at Wembley last month.
