Date published: Monday 5th February 2018 11:15

Jose Mourinho was full of praise for Paul Pogba after the midfielder’s reaction to being dropped in the win over Huddersfield.

The France star was on the bench after Mourinho voiced his displeasure at Pogba’s display in the midweek defeat at Tottenham.

He came on as a second-half substitute in the 2-0 victory over Town at Old Trafford and Mourinho was pleased with his response.

The United chief said: “The reaction you saw – coming to the pitch with great desire to play.

“To be honest, at half-time he was already, because I can analyse body language, showing that he was ready.

“Ready with physio, he was already starting his warming up, so I think he showed the way he took it in a very professional way.”

Pogba will be hoping to return to the starting line-up when United head to Newcastle in the Premier League on Sunday.
