Ever since he re-signed for Manchester United after impressing with Juventus, it feels as if people and the Press have focused mostly on how much he cost United, rather than what he has been doing on the field.
That’s exactly the problem with Paul Pogba, at least according to Jose Mourinho, who feels that the price tag, the title of the ‘most expensive transfer in the history of the sport’, was just too much for the still young Frenchman to deal with.
I think the problem is the tag, the price tag on his back. I hope next summer he’s not anymore the highest transfer fee and then the pressure goes to somebody else
the Portuguese told Omnisport.
If his transfer fee was half of it, everybody would say ‘what a buy,’ ‘he’s playing more than good’. But everybody expects performances according to that huge transfer fee and that brings pressure and that brings sometimes unfair analysis
the United manager said, sharing, next, his belief that Pogba is destined for greatness.
I think he can be the best midfield player, I think so. I don’t see another one with everything he has. He has to develop, of course he has to develop, but he has the physicality, he has the brain, he’s very skillful, he’s very agile for that huge body he has
Mourinho said, praising Pogba.
