''The Manager Wants Us To Attack'' - Paul Pogba Aims Dig At Jose Mourinho As Manchester United Win Again
The French World Cup winner grabbed two in the first half then struck the post with a well hit shot in the closing stages of the game. The near-miss may have been a disappointment for Pogba as he went in search of a personal milestone but it was a good day's work nonetheless.
Pogba's relationship with previous boss Jose Mourinho was known to be a troublesome and the player questioned the Portugese's tactical approach on more than one occasion. But under United's interim boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, Pogba looks to be enjoying life again and his comments to Sky Sports after the game confirmed as much.
He said: "We needed the win. Things are far better but there's a long way to go but to end the year like that is very good.
"We are Manchester United and we need to keep up and be near the top of the league. The reaction of all the players shows that everybody is enjoying themselves. We enjoy playing football, we work for each other."
Asked if United were now playing with more freedom, Pogba said: "It's just different. We still won some games with the old manager but it's just a different syle of play - more offensive I would say so we create more chances. We try to play like that - it's how we want to play. The manager wants to attack and that's what we do on the pitch."
