The world record signing’s adjustment to the Premier League after starring in Serie A is an ongoing process, says his manager.
Jose Mourinho changes his opinion a lot. A few weeks ago he criticized new arrival Paul Pogba and said he expected more from him but now he has hailed him once again in an interview.
It’s not a secret that Paul Pogba hasn’t justified his world record price-tag so far. Critics and fans doubt his impact on Manchester United but Mourinho relies on the Frenchman.
“He can play in so many positions,” he said in an interview with ‘Sky Sports’. “The problem is not the position. The problem is not the tactical system. The problem is, in my opinion, somebody that comes from a different style of football and needs this time to be at his best level in football that is really difficult to play, especially for midfield players,” he explained.
He added: “I think it is really difficult to play or adapt from different realities, but he is a phenomenal player. He has unbelievable potential.
“He has years and years to develop his game, so that expectation and investment from the club is based on that – a super player for the next seven or eight years.
