Sport: Mourinho reveals why he took off Pogba during 1-0 defeat to Newcastle

Manchester United manager, Jose Mourinho, has said Paul Pogba was not injured during Manchester United’s 1-0 defeat to Newcastle.

Pogba was withdrawn for the second time in three matches, after a below-par display.


Last weekend, the United boss dropped the Frenchman for the home game against Huddersfield, but he was restored to the starting line-up by Mourinho for the trip to St. James Park.

He failed to see out the 90 minutes and after the clash Mourinho was asked if there was an injury.

“No, no problem.

“I wanted a better way to come out in the first phase against a team that was defending in a very compact block.


“I was trying that with the simplicity of Michael Carrick because he tries to make everything simple and bring Alexis in an area close to Lukaku where he can be like a second striker.

“I was unlucky because they scored a goal in the seconds after, and then I’m going to face a different Newcastle where in that moment the only thing they think is defend,” Mourinho said
