Jose Mourinho Hails "Very, Very Good" Paul Pogba Performance

Jose Mourinho Hails "Very, Very Good" Paul Pogba Performance

One would have suspected that Jose Mourinho could only be happy with tonight's 2-0 defeat of Bournemouth.

Having made seven changes ahead of tonight's tie, much attention went toward the performance of Paul Pogba; BT went as far as naming him tonight's man of the match.


With much speculation surrounding who will play for United in their upcoming FA Cup semi-final against Tottenham Hotspur, Mourinho suggested in his post-match comments that each of the 11 starters against Bournemouth put themselves into the frame.

Directed toward the issue of his most-talked about player Pogba, Mourinho was erring once again toward offering the French midfielder plaudits.

I'm not very good on the man of the match, especially because I am the team manager, I am not a big fan of it.

But, he played very well. I would say against Manchester City he was phenomenal ... but today he was very, very good.

So I would say, good choice.

A relationship that will continue to be probed from the outside, for now, things seem friendly, at least.
