Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba on Jose Mourinho relationship amid exit talks

Posted: 23 April 2018 Time: 16:00

Manchester United club-record signing Paul Pogba has given an honest response to his current relationship with manager Jose Mourinho and his future at the Premier League side.

Pogba has been at the centre of major criticism this season during United's shortcomings due to his exorbitant transfer fee and flamboyant lifestyle off the pitch.

And Mourinho has often questioned the France international's commitment and dropped him out the starting XI in recent months.

These public disagreements has opened up speculation that Pogba may seek to depart from Old Trafford for the second time in his career, but the 25-year-old has poured cold water over the reports surfacing in English press.

"I have no problem with him and I don't think he has a problem [with me]," he told French TV show Canal Football Club. "He put me in as captain and he has given me responsibilities in a great club like United. I am a player and I like to give the best of myself.

"He is the coach, he has to make decisions and I am a player, I accept them, I have to answer on the pitch.

"Right now I am at Manchester United and I am thinking solely about the present, the FA Cup and the coming World Cup," Pogba said.

"I am not thinking about transfers or any of that."
