Paul Pogba has reignited his feud with Jose Mourinho after he blamed the manager’s poor tactic for Manchester United’s 1-1 draw against Wolverhampton Wanderers.
Former manager Sir Alex Ferguson, for the first time appeared at Old Trafford since suffering a brain haemorrhage four months ago, but that couldn’t inspire United to a win.
Mourinho’s men now trail Premier League leaders Liverpool by eight points and still have to face their bitter rivals twice.
Pogba said the mistake Manchester United is making right now is that they are not attacking.
“We’re at home and we should play much better against Wolves. When we’re at home we should attack, attack, attack. That’s Old Trafford.
“We’re here to attack. I think teams are scared when they see Manchester United attacking and attacking. That was our mistake.
“We should just attack and press like we did against Tottenham, Liverpool, Chelsea and Arsenal last season. When we play like this, it’s easier for us.”
When asked what was stopping United from adopting an all-out attacking style in keeping with the club’s history and tradition, Pogba pointed the finger of blame at Mourinho.
He said: “I can’t tell you, because I’m a player. It’s not me. I’m not the manager, I cannot, like, say that, but obviously we should show more options of playing.
“But I cannot say that because I’m a player. That’s my way of thinking – we should move better, we should move more, yeah.”
