Mourinho seemingly takes dig at Pogba over PSG elimination
- Mourinho doesn't think he was a victim of Pogba.
- He hints that United knocking PSG out was down to Pogba not playing.
- He puts that win down to tactical and mental problems.
Jose Mourinho had enough problems with Paul Pogba but he refuses to blame it all on just one player for all the struggles. However, Pogba seemed a genuine worry.
Jose told L'Equipe: ''Was I a victim of Pogba? No. The problems are there, you can imagine that the problems are the players, the organisation, the ambition, I only say that I can not say yes when you ask if Paul was the only one responsible.''
Mourinho didn't use Pogba in the Champions League Round of 16 against Sevilla last year and the Frenchman was suspended for the away clash at Paris St-Germain this year. Mourinho hints this could be the reason United overturn the 2-0 deficit.
He said: ''The elimination of PSG I think I know the reasons, but I do not always do my analysis publicly on Manchester United. I do not want to talk about it and I have the feeling that I do not need to speak, that time gives explanations.
''This victory is a little out of context, even if we had won in Turin in the group stage. In Paris, I think I know a little the reasons, tactics and mental.''
