Paul Pogba has lifted the lid on how Jose Mourinho made him feel immediately comfortable following his transfer to Manchester United last summer.

The French midfielder returned to Old Trafford from Juventus in a world-record transfer deal last summer as one of Mourinho’s first signings at the club.

Pogba was a regular fixture in the Manchester United team last season but most Red Devils fans will agree that the midfielder failed to hit top form for Mourinho’s men.

Nevertheless, Pogba helped Manchester United win the Europa League and EFL Cup in Mourinho’s first campaign in charge at the club.

And the Frenchman has lifted the lid on how Mourinho helped him to settle at Old Trafford last summer.

Speaking to Sky Sports, Pogba said: “He’s a manager who is really close with the players.

“Personally, he welcomed me, we had a talk and I had a good feeling from the first moment on. He trusted and defended me. That’s all a player needs.”
