Paul Pogba takes swipe at Jose Mourinho after Man Utd’s win at Tottenham

Paul Pogba appeared to take a swipe at Jose Mourinho after the Frenchman turned in another impressive display in Manchester United’s win at Tottenham.

It was United’s sixth successive win since Ole Gunnar Solskjaer replaced Mourinho at the helm and the change in management has seen a marked improvement in Pogba’s displays.

And the World Cup winner says his role under Mourinho was stifling him and not allowing him to play to his strengths.

“I love playing big matches and against the best players,” said Pogba after the game. “That’s where we improve and progress. It was a big one for us. Everyone played well.

“I’m enjoying playing football. It was really difficult with the tactics we used to play. I like to play more attacking. Defending is not my best attribute.

“The manager told me to get in the box, get goals. My best example is Frank Lampard, he’s the one who makes those runs.

“That’s what we want, that’s why we play, we need to keep it up, we won today and got three points.”
