Jose Mourinho Finally Reveals Why He Benched Pogba For Man United Loss Against Liverpool

Published

on

Manchester United manager, Jose Mourinho, has explained why he dropped midfielder, Paul Pogba from his side’s Premier League 3-1 defeat by Liverpool on Sunday.

Goals from Sadio Mane (1), Xherdan Shaqiri (2) gave Jurgen Klopp’s men all three points against United.

However, Jesse Lingard did score for Jose Mourinho’s men.

Mourinho said his decision not to feature Pogba against Liverpool was because he wanted to bring more aggressiveness and intensity in midfield.

When asked why Pogba did not feature against Liverpool, Mourinho told Sky Sports:

“I made many decisions. I made many decisions with starting with 11 players and leaving others on the bench.

“I always try to choose what I think is best for the team. I think the team lately with [Ander] Herrera, [Nemanja] Matic and [Jesse] Lingard lost some qualities.

“But at the same time we become more aggressive, more simple, more intense without the ball and that’s what I think we need to play against such a fast team like Liverpool.”

“Real Reason Why Zidane Quit As Real Madrid Coach” – Calderon

Published

By

Former Real Madrid president, Ramon Calderon has revealed Zinedine Zidane quit as coach over a disagreement regarding who was in control of transfers.

Calderon said the Frenchman walked away from Santiago Bernabeu because he wanted Gareth Bale sold instead of Cristiano Ronaldo, but president Florentino Perez had other ideas.

“Zidane made it very clear when he decided to leave the club,”he told Bleacher Report.

“He insisted on keeping Cristiano and transferring Bale, and the president did completely the opposite.

“Zidane also wanted to sign some players and transfer others apart from Bale but he didn’t get [his wishes], so he decided to leave. And he was right.”

Calderon added that:-

“The point with Cristiano was not only that he scored 50 goals per season but also that he was a leader. He could help team-mates. He was always encouraging them to play better, to train more.

“For me, that is the main problem not only the loss of his goals but Cristiano’s behaviour, his attitude.”

‘Pogba Should Have Gotten Red Card In Tottenham vs Man United’- Graeme Souness

Published

Graeme Souness has criticised referee Mike Dean for not sending off Manchester United midfielder, Paul Pogba, for his challenge on Tottenham’s Dele Alli.

Pogba set up Marcus Rashford for the only goal of the game, as United secured a 1-0 victory at Wembley.

However, Souness believes that Pogba’s challenge in the 78th minute, should have resulted in a red card instead of a yellow.

Speaking on Sky Sports, Souness said:

“I think it’s a red card. And there’s not one ounce of doubt in my mind. He knew what he was doing.

“You step over it, you use your strength to keep the player away, but look where the ball is, look where the foot is.

“If that referee doesn’t see that as a red card, he sees it as a foul, he sees it as a yellow card, then he knows nothing about football, the referee. There wasn’t one ounce of doubt in my mind he’s gone over the ball to do him.”
