Former Arsenal striker believes the Special One is the perfect manager for the French midfielder Paul Pogba.
Pogba returned to Old Trafford last summer from Juventus, but was unable to bring fully the world class level he showed at Serie A. Robert Pires backed the Portuguese manager and Pogba, saying that he is “very confident” in the player.
“I know Paul, I am very confident for him, but I think Man Utd is a good choice for him and if you work with Jose Mourinho you can learn a lot,” he told Sky Sports.
“The first season is very difficult, it is like a transition for him as he used to play for Juventus in Italy and so everything is different.
“You cannot compare France, Italy, Spain, Germany, UK, they are not the same.
“And that is why the time adaption is very important for Paul Pogba and the other players.”
