Mourinho Hails United's "Professional" Performance Vs Bournemouth, Praises Pogba

Man Utd possible XI Mourinho Hails United's "Professional" Performance Vs Bournemouth, Praises Pogba
Shannon Reynolds | 20 April, 2018, 14:45

JOSE Mourinho has rejected stinging criticism from Paul Scholes on Paul Pogba, insisting the France midfielder produced another "top performance" at Bournemouth.

The Frenchman responded with a moment of brilliance that sealed victory for United as his charging run set up Romelu Lukaku to add to Chris Smalling's first half opener.

Mourinho may well be right in coaching Pogba not to overthink his game. It was a good professional performance with good effort and responsibility.

Speaking to BT Sport (via ESPN) about how the game influenced his selection for this weekend's FA Cup semi-final against Tottenham, Mourinho admitted: "I would say every player on the pitch was positive and put himself forward for Saturday".

And the former Juventus star produced a much-improved display, leaving Mourinho purring.

If Mourinho is ready to part company with Pogba only two years after the player returned to Old Trafford, he must take his share of the blame.

"I don't think there's a huge gap in performance levels between the teams, but we end up losing".

Barclays boss Jes Staley fined for whistleblower scandal

The Portuguese tactician went on to lavish praise on the "phenomenal" midfielder in the post-match interview; "Top performance".

Pogba's agent Mino Raiola is believed to have made contact with all of them in recent months.

The victor will face either Chelsea or Southampton, who play on Sunday, in the final.

"I still live with the emotions of last Sunday".

In the first leg played at the Goodison Park, it ended 1-1, but Everton had the chance to win this tie at Old Trafford only for United to be giving a stoppage time penalty scored by Ibrahimovic. I know that the Europa League was a target and you lose a little bit of focus. OK, no doubts about City's quality, and that in any circumstances they would win this title because they are the better (team). We have enjoyed the season a lot but there is work to do if we want to achieve more in future.

Luke Shaw, afforded a rare start by Mourinho, was lucky not to have conceded a penalty after tugging back Callum Wilson inside the box when the Cherries man seemed certain to score the equaliser. Against Liverpool, we won, we drew so we got one point from Liverpool.

"On the balance of play I think we deserved to get back in the game".
