Paul Pogba “Engine of the Team” Says Jose Mourinho



Paul Pogba simply gives Manchester United something that no one else on the roster can, and he takes both the midfield and the attack, and propels them to heights that they are incapable of seeing without him. If you had any doubts about just how much value Pogba has to United, you can put that all to rest now after Saturday.

Pogba made his return, after over two months out of action, and he scored, assisted, and dance joyously as his side thrashed Newcastle United 4-1 at home.

After the rout, United manager Jose Mourinho hailed Paul Pogba has one half of the team’s engine; with Nemanja Matic being the other half.

“Paul Pogba is different class. Paul and Nemanja Matic grew up together at the start of the season and are the engine of the team. It was in Paul’s hands, how many minutes to play until he began to feel fatigued. It was a great performance from him,” Mourinho said.

“I know that strikers depend on goals for confidence and happiness. I was really happy to see him score his goal.

“We go match to match — we can only play Manchester City twice in a season. In those games we will try to take points — outside of those fixtures we are not in control.” (quotes via Daily Express)
