Don’t expect the Paul Pogba transfer rumors to go away anytime soon.
Saturday morning, Manchester United takes on Huddersfield Town in the fifth round of the FA Cup. But midfielder Paul Pogba won’t be there.
“A frustrating few weeks for Manchester United’s Paul Pogba continued when he was ruled out of Saturday’s FA Cup fifth round trip to Huddersfield Town due to illness.”
A couple of early substitutionsa��against Tottenham and Huddersfielda��would catch our attention recently. ButA�JosA� Mourinho isn’t here for the ‘lies’ about Pogba.
“Paul accepts that he has not been playing well in the last few matches but that’s all. He is not playing well, period. And the team needs him at a good level. And when he is not playing at a good level the team is not as good as the team can be.”
All of this makes sense, of course. But this is also Mourinho we’re talking about herea��you’ll never get a fully straight answer. But he does offer one more bit of insight into this madness.
“I think it happens with every team when the best players, the most crucial players, for some reason are not performing.”
United looks to continue their FA Cup run at Huddersfield’s expense today. In the meantime, they are second in the Premier League on 56 pointsa��16 off Manchester City’s pace.
