– Paul Pogba has demanded from Jose Mourinho a more attacking role in Manchester United midfield
– The former Juventus midfielder has complained about being played into a more defensive position
– Pogba scored the winner for France in their 1 – 0 win against Holland in a World Cup qualifier
The world’s most expensive player Paul Pogba has demanded that Manchester United coach Jose Mourinho should play him in a more attacking position.
The French midfielder has been handed a more defensive responsibility for the Red Devils than what he has been for the French national team since moving to Old Trafford.
The former Juventus midfielder admitted that playing numerous role across the middle for United this season is “costing” him.
Pogba said: “I try to adapt. I am a player who would rather go forward.
“The coach gave me instructions, I try to follow them. I have to retrieve balls and make defensive efforts.
“It cost me a bit to play differently, much like [Andrea] Pirlo. I have to play, be there to recover and play more for the team.”
Pogba scored the winner for Les Blues in their 1 – 0 win against Holland in a World Cup qualifier and capped it all with an impressive performance.
The 23-year-old’s has only one goal to his name this season in the 4 – 0 thumping of defending Champions Leicester City at Old Trafford in September.
