Paul Pogba had problems at Man Utd with Jose Mourinho for this reason – Arsene Wenger | Football | Sport
Under the Portuguese manager, Pogba only managed to notch three league goals, but since his axing, he’s scored eight.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was appointed as caretaker boss and has since won 10 of his first 11 games.
Not only were results below par, but he also fell out with numerous players, including Pogba.
But Wenger doesn’t believe all of their problems were just Jose Mourinho’s fault.
“And in this team, Paul Pogba is a fantastic football player but sometimes he lacks discipline.
“But you have [Nemanja] Matic and [Ander] Herrera who work for him and so he can express his talent.
“Mourinho wanted discipline from everybody and that’s why Pogba in the recent games has performed well.”
On his side’s battle with the French Champions, the World Cup winner had this to say.
“Coming from Paris, and playing against your ‘home’ or your first town, it’s my first time, so it’s going to be beautiful! I’m going to have my family around, all my friends. But I hope we win,” he said.
“There are a lot of French players, and they have top players who have been winning the league for I don’t know how many years.
“They’re looking to win the Champions League – that’s their goal. The goalkeepers, Alphonse Areola, Gigi [Buffon] – I played with both of them, and Kylian [Mbappe] and [Presnel] Kimpembe.
“So I’m looking forward to playing against them, but the first thing is to win against them! That’s what I want.”
