Pogba implores Manchester United to 'attack, attack, attack'

Frank Lampard Derby County jose mourinho

Manchester United lost more ground on the Premier League title race on Saturday, and Jose Mourinho was not happy with one aspect of his side's draw with Wolverhampton Wanderers.

Even as he stopped to talk in the wake of United's latest troubled outing at Old Trafford, exasperation writ large on his face, the France midfielder seemed to be caught in two minds about precisely how much he should say, and how far he should go.

United were held at Old Trafford by newly-promoted Wolves after Joao Moutinho cancelled out Fred's opener.

"Teams are scared when they see Man United attacking and attacking".

United are seventh in the standings, eight points behind leaders Liverpool after six matches.

"What you have to know about Alexis is he is a hard worker", Pogba said after Sanchez was substituted against Wolves.

"Obviously we should show more options but I can not say that because I'm a player".




"I'm not the manager, I can not say that", he said. "They started better were more aggressive, had more intent and I don't know why but they were more motivated".

Mourinho has been tasked with steering the Red Devils to a Premier League title challenge after they finished second and without a trophy last season. "We are here to attack", Pogba told the media after the match.

Pogba was linked with a move to La Liga champions Barcelona for much of the summer transfer window, with the Catalans reported to have made an offer.

Asked why United hadn't caused Wolves more problems, Pogba responded by suggesting some of his teammates were too static: "I can't tell you because I'm a player - it's not me".

"Obviously we should show more options, but I can not say that because I'm a player". They had (it), we didn't.

The Frenchman did take responsibility, saying the team needs to execute better on the field, but then turned it back on the predetermined style of play. We want to play every game like it is the last game of our lives.
