Mourinho demands Pogba lift his game


Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho has suggested that Paul Pogba hasn't been working hard enough in training in recent months.

The pair also allegedly clashed a number of times behind the scenes, but the City game may have been a watershed moment in their relationship.

But Pogba produced a fine second-half display which included two excellent goals to inspire a turnaround and he later said a conversation with Carrick - who is set to join Mourinho's coaching staff at the end of the season - played a major part. I don't expect him to score two goals every week, either, but I would like him to be consistent to a certain level.

"So, if you ask me, I'm expecting Paul now to be man of the match every week? No".

Pogba had put in a disappointing first half against the league leaders, but returned to the field a changed man, and scored two goals within three minutes to bring United level.

"We won against every one of the top six, we have a great number of points in between the top six".

Pep Guardiola's side have dominated the Premier League this season and will wrap up the title if United were to lose at home to West Brom on Sunday, or on Wednesday against Bournemouth.

Jose Mourinho is gearing-up for another busy summer of transfer activity as the United boss knows he needs to further strengthen his squad if they're to compete for major trophies next season. I would like people to be a little more honest when we do something positive.

"We are not going to spend more than we can", he said. "That's what we are going to try".

Manchester United are reportedly planning to outbid their city rivals, Manchester City to the signature of Brazil star, Fred this summer.

"Last season we finished sixth and this season we are going to finish I believe fourth, third or second - hopefully second - and next season we are going to try and improve but let's see what happens".

Mourinho added: "I think Man City wins the title (this season)".
