Man Utd boss Mourinho: Pogba best in the world – and he'll get better


Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho regards Paul Pogba as the best midfielder in the world.

Despite the former Juventus star’s struggles this season, Mourinho won’t hear criticism of the Frenchman.

He told Perform: “As a midfielder, I do not really like to talk about the best in the world.

“You do not say ‘the best player in the world’ for a goalkeeper. Apart from Fabio Cannavaro, you do not say ‘the best in the world’ for a central defender. The best in the world is always the one who scores goals, I find it a little unfair.

“I think as midfielder, Pogba is the best. I do not see another who has as many qualities as he does. He must evolve, of course. But he has the physical, the intelligence. He is very agile with that big body he has. He is good in the defensive and offensive sector. He is good at free kicks.

“If Zlatan let him shoot, he could score some goals. I think he has it all.”
