Ibrahimović Gives His Verdict On Pogba After Mourinho’s Sacking

Ibrahimović Gives His Verdict On Pogba After Mourinho’s Sacking

Well, what follows is a beguiling yarn spun on Twitter by Nate Patrick, a Federation Internationale de Football Association 19 and E-sports commentator whose mother and father had the pleasure of bumping into a train full of Manchester United players.

He said: "I want to stay".

LA Galaxy forward Zlatan has now revealed that both Pogba and Mourinho had little confidence in each other, and that the France internationals recent upturn in form under United's caretaker boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is because he is being afforded freedom to express himself.

Anthony Martial is close to agreeing a new deal after also looking likely to leave under Mourinho.

Alexander-Arnold signed this extended deal as a more mature person and player, according to Klopp - and one who rightly commands the respect and admiration of his coaches, teammates and fans.

"Having a lot of results in the past at home is good, but the only result I am interested in is the one tomorrow".

"To be honest with you, the third one sometimes goes in cycles". Hell, his Chelsea team once went an entire Premier League season only conceding 13 goals.

"There are other mentalities and personalities and the reaction is not the best. Some of them, they don't react in the same way". "Certain moments, some strong public words, some of them have some risk".

"He doesn't know my philosophy", Mourinho said on BeIN Sport.

It must have been a rather uncomfortable situation for Pogba, accustomed as he is to the stardom that being one of the world's best footballers brings - but perhaps this incident will make clear to him the dangers of going off the rails.

He also hinted that he was not as well supported as Guardiola and Klopp. In all Mourinho spent £400m on players during his time in charge at Old Trafford. Some of the players were already champions twice, (Sergio) Aguero and (Vincent) Kompany, and in the first to the second season Pep made great decisions, but great decisions that were supported.

"And when Pep arrived he was not happy with the four full-back he had and he bought four full-backs he liked".

"If you are a manager that you have the possibility to choose the players who you want to follow your football idea. Another thing is if you are not able to do that". As numerous United faithful would attest to, Mourinho's negative, defensive philosophy stood in contrast to United's attacking nature. The Reds then put the game to bed three minutes into stoppage time when Sadio Mane rounded Wayne Hennessey and slid the ball into an empty net to settle proceedings. You need the structure.
