Manchester United coach, Jose Mourinho says critics should give his £89m midfielder, Paul Pogba, more time to click.
Mourinho’s comments came after the 23-year-old France midfielder, who joined the club 3 months ago, scored twice in Thursday’s 4-1 Europa League win over Fenerbahce.
His performance on Thursday was regarded by critics as better than his lackluster contribution in Monday’s goal less with Liverpool.
Mourinho in responding to such comments said, “Two days ago he was the worst player in the Premier League and 48 hours later he’s phenomenal.
“He needs time. I’m happy with his performance. He has what we need.
Mourinho believes his world record signing needs time to get used to a different style of football.
“I was in Italy and I know the characteristics, the pace and intensity.
To be in Italy for four or five years and then come back to the Premier League, I was not expecting him to adjust in a click of fingers.”
Pogba, who spoke after the Europa game said he is more comfortable with the Red Devils team now and hopes to put up more spectacular performances.
He has now scored three goals in his 10 games for Manchester United.
