Paul Pogba has admitted to having “small issues” with Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho last season.

The France midfielder was dropped by Mourinho on several occasions last term with the 25-year-old struggling to maintain his form at Old Trafford.

Numerous reports have suggested Pogba is unsettled and could be shipped out with his former club Juventus, Atletico Madrid and PSG all linked with Pogba, who was apparently offered to Man City.

In April Man City boss Pep Guardiola claimed Pogba’s agent Mino Raiola had offered him to their neighbours, while United sources last claimed Pogba would never left for City.

Guardiola said: “Two months ago he offered me Mkhitaryan and Pogba to play with us.”

And Pogba, speaking ahead of France’s final World Cup group game against Denmark, Pogba said: “It was a better season than the previous one.

“It was an experience. There were some small issues with [Mourinho], but they were nothing in the end.

“Being a substitute, that sort of thing, it helps you to grow. I have to accept it.”

 

Pogba, who scored six league goals and 10 assists for United also claimed Russia 2018 could be his last World Cup

“It might be my last World Cup,” Pogba added. “I’m realistic, we don’t know if I’ll be called up, maybe other players will be better than me.

“I hope I’ll play more (tournaments). I’ve already had the chance to play two, some can only dream to play one.”
