Shaka Hislop has warned Jose Mourinho that he will have to change his approach to get the best out of Paul Pogba at Manchester United.

The midfielder’s situation at Old Trafford has been a source of much debate in recent months due to his stuttering form for the Red Devils under Mourinho.

Pogba’s patchy form for Manchester United has been contrasted by his top performances for France at this summer’s World Cup in Russia, as he sparkled to help his country win the title.

Attentions will now turn towards whether Mourinho will be able to get the best form out of Pogba at Old Trafford next season as they look to challenge for the title.

And former goalkeeper Hislop feels that Mourinho will likely have to change his approach to the situation if he wants to get the best out of the midfielder.

Speaking in an interview with ESPN FC, Hislop said: “The tough love for Pogba hasn’t worked. It hasn’t got a response yet.

“Sir Alex Ferguson managed his players with the off field distractions a whole lot better.”

Manchester United are still thought to be on the lookout for a number of new signings this summer as they bid to build a squad capable of winning the title next season.

The Red Devils finished in second place in the table last term and without a trophy in Mourinho’s second campaign at the club.
