Over recent months there has been plenty of speculation about the state of the relationship between Paul Pogba and Jose Mourinho.
Ahead of Sunday’s game against Arsenal, Pogba has revealed that there are no problems
It’s good, very good. He’s the coach, I’m the player. He does the coaching, I do the playing. I’m here and very happy. I give my best for the team, for myself I’m happy because we are in a final and I want to finish the season very well.
Speaking to ESPN, Mourinho has reiterated Pogba’s claims and said he’s not bothered about the lies the media publish.
If that happened 10 or 15 years back, it would bother me a lot, because in that time it wouldn’t have lies in journalism. Actually, I don’t even know who’s a journalist and who isn’t anymore, because nowadays anyone can be a journalist. In fact, me and Paul never had a personal issue.
If you tell me that we would have problems because me, as a coach, create different things than someone else and vice versa, ok. But personal issues, absolutely not. And I feel happy to say that Paul can be a lot of things, but there’s a think I can assure you: he’s very polite.
