France international Paul Pogba has admitted that he had ‘small issues’ with Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho during the recently-concluded league campaign.
Pogba, 25, had found himself in-and-out of the United lineup between February and March which had speculated a rift between him and the manager and the midfielder has now admitted that there were some minor differences.
Speaking ahead of the Denmark game, Pogba revealed that he had minor issues with the Portuguese tactician last term but there was not much to worry about with the experience only likely to make him a better player.
At one stage, Pogba appeared to have lost his midfield position to club graduate Scott McTominay but the Frenchman managed to win back his role towards the final weeks of the campaign.
Pogba was hugely instrumental towards United’s stellar 3-2 comeback win over Manchester City in April and shortly after, he provided a defining assist during the FA Cup semi-final triumph over Tottenham Hotspur.
Despite this, United ended the season without any silverware after Pogba and co. suffered an FA Cup final defeat to Chelsea but the midfielder will be hoping for better results in the club’s shirt next season.
Pogba is presently with the France national side at the summer World Cup in Russia and they are currently preparing for their final group stage game against Denmark.
Les Bleus have already qualified for the knockout stages of the tournament after victories over Peru and Australia but they have the opportunity to top the group with at least a draw versus the Danes.
