Pogba Considered Leaving Under Mourinho —Brother

Paul Pogba considered leaving Manchester United towards the end of Jose Mourinho ’ s tenure, but is much happier since Ole Gunnar Solskjaer took over , his brother has said.

Pogba started the final three matches under Mourinho on the bench before being restored to a starring role once Solskjaer came in , scoring six goals and contributing nine assists in that time .

“Things were not going well under Mourinho , ” Mathias Pogba told Telefoot . “Now that Solskjaer has given him the keys to the team , so to speak , things have started up again. That ’ s what my little brother needs .

“Of course that ( leaving) crosses your mind But now, he is where he is. He was under contract, and above all he had to just keep quiet , grit his teeth , and keep working . ”

Mathias also said his brother had considered leaving whilst Mourinho was at the helm and Solskjaer , who Paul worked under during his time in United ’ s reserves , knows how to motivate the World Cup winner.

“As Solskjaer had Paul with the reserve team , he knows exactly what to say and how to say it to Paul, ” he said. “ And when you give my little brother that responsibility , you will only see the best of him . ”

Meanwhile , goalkeeper David De Gea said Pogba ’ s form has been key to United closing the gap in the race for the top four .

“He is very young , but he has a lot of character and personality , on the pitch , ” the Spain international said, “ That ’ s always positive for a team like us.

“Right now, he is scoring a lot of goals , that helps us. but I think he’ s the same player as three or four months ago , with great qualities . He’ s very important for us.

“The closer Paul is to the penalty box , the more balls he gets in the zone of truth , and that ’ s better for us because it ’ s more dangerous for our opponents .

“He scores goals , he has a lot of talent , and excellent vision , that ’ s very important for us .
