Jose Mourinho is reportedly under the microscope in regards to his deployment of one of United’s top players, Paul Pogba, in his line-up.

With just one win in their last three Premier League fixtures, Mourinho’s side has gone way off to challenge for the title and instead have now entered a battle to stay in the top four. And one the major talking points from all these three games has been Pogba.

The Portuguese tactician didn’t use the Frenchman for a full 90 minutes during the clashes against Tottenham and Newcastle and dropped him altogether against Huddersfield at Old Trafford.

As per the report from Daily Record, the Special One is unhappy with the former Juventus star because of his ‘failure to adhere to tactical instruction both in his defensive contribution and when in possession of the ball’.

Meanwhile, Pogba wants his boss to change the side’s formation in order to give him the freedom to play in a more attacking role on the left side of a midfield three.

It was claimed that the 24-year-old ‘believes his ability to impact matches has been limited by the defensive duties he is expected to perform’.

The duo’s clash has somewhat disrupted the regular proceedings at Old Trafford and a shocking loss to Newcastle last weekend has worsened the situation.
