Pog: It was dif­fi­cult with Mour­inho

Manchester Evening News - - SPORT -

PAUL Pogba has ad­mit­ted he found it ‘dif­fi­cult’ to play un­der Jose Mour­inho’s tac­tics and is en­joy­ing hav­ing more free­dom un­der Ole Gun­nar Sol­sk­jaer.

The World Cup win­ner’s per­for­mances have dra­mat­i­cally im­proved since Mour­inho was sacked and Sol­sk­jaer came in as care­taker man­ager three weeks ago, and he pro­duced an­other top-class per­for­mance against Tot­ten­ham.

Pogba pro­vided a per­fect pass for Mar­cus Rash­ford to score the match win­ner at Wem­b­ley and send United level on points with Arse­nal in fifth. The 25-year-old was asked what had changed af­ter his dis­ap­point­ing start to the league cam­paign. “I am en­joy­ing play­ing foot­ball, it was re­ally dif­fi­cult with the sys­tem and tac­tics we used to play,” Pogba said. “I like to be more at­tack­ing, press­ing and play high rather than de­fend­ing. When I have to de­fend, I miss my lu­cid­ity, but when I play there (fur­ther for­ward) with the team I think my po­si­tion that is when I feel the most com­fort­able.”
