Mourinho left Pogba on the bench for victory over Fulham last night. Blind told the Mirror: “One thing Jose has to do with Pogba is instruct him to play simple.
“He is the kind of player who wants to come up with complicated solutions or difficult options. And, in midfield, he wants to have 100,000 touches of the ball.
He wants to shake off opponents by showing them his strength, a double shoulder push or whatever before he turns with the ball.
“But, in the Premier League, all of his opponents are equally strong, physically. He just can’t do it. So make him pass the ball direct and simply.”
