EPL: Wenger reveals mistake Mourinho made with Pogba at Manchester United




Former Arsenal boss, Arsene Wenger, has said Paul Pogba was stifled by Jose Mourinho’s tactics.

Speaking on beIN Sports, Wenger noted that Pogba was now profiting from the greater freedom afforded to him by Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

No United player has scored or assisted more goals than the Frenchman since Solskjaer took over.

“Sometimes, you know, we are managers. Mourinho has proven he is a great manager. He has always gone for discipline for everybody.

“And in this team [under Solskjaer] I believe that Pogba is a fantastic football player but sometimes he lacks discipline.

“But you have [Nemanja] Matic and [Ander] Herrera now who work for him and so he can express his talent.

“Mourinho wanted discipline from everybody. That is defendable as well. So that’s maybe why Pogba, as we have seen recently, has performed well,” Wenger said.
