Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho: ‘Talk of Paul Pogba exit is a lie’

Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho has dismissed any suggestions that Paul Pogba could leave the club in the summer.

Pogba has struggled for form since the start of 2018 and earlier this week, a report claimed that the French international was unhappy with life at Old Trafford.

The club-record signing has also been linked with a transfer to Real Madrid, but Mourinho has claimed that there is no truth in any rumours regarding the player.

At a press conference, the 55-year-old told reporters: “He was out for a long long time and in this moment, he is not playing well, period. And the team needs him at a good level. When he is not a good level, the team is not as good. It happens with every team when the most crucial players are not performing.

“You don’t need to come with we want to sell him, you don’t need that. Some people go in that direction, some of them I know for many, many years and their surname is liar, and that’s not nice. He plays tomorrow.”

United travel to the John Smith’s Stadium to play Huddersfield Town in the FA Cup fifth round on Saturday.
