Jamie Redknapp tells Jose Mourinho to change approach with Man United star
The Liverpool FC legend tells Jose Mourinho to show the record Man United signing more love
Jamie Redknapp has told Jose Mourinho that Paul Pogba needs to feel the love from the Manchester United manager.
The France international moved to the Red Devils in an £89m deal from Serie A giants Juventus in the 2016 summer transfer window.
The Manchester United record signing won the Europa League and the League Cup in his first season back at Old Trafford.
However, Pogba failed to rekindle his impressive Juventus form in a Manchester United shirt, while his relationship with Mourinho attracted scrutiny.
The 25-year-old helped to fire France to the World Cup crown following his goal in their 4-2 win over Croatia in the final last month.
Former Liverpool FC captain Redknapp believes Mourinho should follow Didier Deschamps’ example and show some ove to Pogba.
“I think he needs a manager to put his arm around him. Look at what Deschamps did for him,” Redknapp told Sky Sports’ The Debate.
Pogba scored in Manchester United’s 2-1 win over Leicester on Friday.
Manchester United finished in second place in the Premier League table last term to secure their best finish since the Sir Alex Ferguson era.
The Red Devils failed to win a trophy last season to heap pressure on Mourinho ahead of his third campaign at Old Trafford.
