MANCHESTER UNITED boss Jose Mourinho will be happy with Paul Pogba’s recent comments on his future at the club.
That is according to Sky Sports pundit and former Chelsea midfielder Steve Sidwell.
Pogba’s long-term future at Manchester United is in doubt due to a long-running feud with boss Jose Mourinho.
The midfielder has been linked with a move to La Liga giants Barcelona, who reportedly had a bid turned down last month.
Pogba is currently on international duty with France and said, even though he is committed to United, anything could happen in the coming months.
“My future is currently in Manchester,” Paul Pogba said.
“I still have a contract, I am playing there at the moment, but who knows what will happen in the next few months.”
Sidwell reckons Mourinho will be happy at the comments from Pogba because it shows fans what the 25-year-old is really like.
And he reckons United supporters will question why Pogba said what he did.
“I think with seeing that, I think Jose will be happy,” Sidwell said on The Debate.
“That things like that are coming out and people are seeing what Pogba’s like, in terms of he doesn’t need to say that there in that interview.
“I think he’d be happy in a sense that ‘this is not all me, this is a two-way thing’.
“Listen, there’s no smoke without fire, it takes two of them to tango as such.
“I think he’d be happy that it’s coming out now and Man United fans and fans around the world will be watching that and saying the likes of ‘Why is he doing that? Why have you got to do that?’.
“Manchester United is one of the biggest clubs in the world, if not the biggest club in the world.
“‘We don’t need this around the football club, let’s just do our talking on the pitch’.”
United have won two and lost two of their first four Premier League games of the season and face form side Watford after the international break.
