Manchester United star Paul Pogba has called on the Red Devils to start playing more attacking football.
‘Attack, attack, attack’ he told BBC Sport, mirroring the famous Old Trafford chant.
Pogba’s comments have been deconstructed by some media outlets as ‘digs at Jose Mourinho’.
That certainly fits a media agenda from some to force a wedge between Pogba and Mourinho.
Pogba is simply telling it like it is, acknowledging his team’s shortcomings.
Wolves are a good team, but a 1-1 draw at Old Trafford was a lamentable disappointment.
A leader speaks
Pogba can’t seem to win. He is accused by some pundits of being nonchalant, and too interested in his haircuts than matching his £89 million price tag.
He produced a special game changing moment to set up Fred for his goal against Wolves, his second assist so far this season.
This is something he and his teammates must fix, along with Jose Mourinho.
His comments show that he cares, that he wants success, and that he is committed to trying to play attacking football.
After a disappointing result, that should be exactly what Manchester United players and their fans want to hear.
