Mourinho hits out at 'lies' over reported Pogba row

Antonio Conte stares at the prankster today

Man United face Huddersfield in the Last-16 of the FA Cup today.

In his assessment of the Pogba situation, Mourinho indicated that the 24-year-old France global was still returning to fitness but will play against Huddersfield tomorrow.

During Friday's news conference, Mourinho was keen to dismiss any reports that Pogba could leave United in a very stern conversation with journalists.

"He can still improve and that is why I hope Huddersfield stay up because I want him to keep playing at this level".

United manager Jose Mourinho had said in his pre-match news conference that the French global would return to the side after a poor run of form in the past few weeks.

"The majority of things you can read and listen, don't be polite, be objective and say lies".

"Somebody tell me in which position Pogba played against Newcastle, any one of you want to tell me?" "I don't have to tell you anything about it", the Portuguese boss added.

"I know he will take my place some day and that is not something I would be afraid of, or try to put him off, because it is important to help the future and Scott is definitely that", said the United legend. There is much more to his game than just goals however, and a lot of his link-up has been overlooked in recent weeks. Paul Pogba has a five-year contract with Manchester United and, for the time being, he has only met two of them.




"So it's easy and honest, and objective to say Paul Pogba did not play well against Newcastle".

It is clear Manchester United are struggling to accomdate their record signing in the side, although Mourinho did confirm Pogba would start tomorrow against Huddersfield.

Ultimately, Paul Pogba's absence is detrimental to Manchester United because the young Frenchman is the backbone to Mourinho's midfield.

However, Mourinho also has to balance of the demands his Cup ambitions with a tough Champions League trip to in Sevilla in midweek, as well as upcoming Premier League clashes against Chelsea and Liverpool.

"Lets go step by step".

United are bidding to reach the quarter-finals of the FA Cup for the fourth season in a row. You don't need that, and some people go in that direction. He had a red card against Arsenal, probably in his best match of the season and in his and the team's best moment.

"I think it happens with every team when the best players, the most crucial players for some reason are not performing".
