PAUL POGBA insists there is no issue with Jose Mourinho despite continuous reports the pair have fallen out.
The Frenchman was omitted from the starting line-up for both legs of the disastrous Champions League last-16 tie with Sevilla.
But Pogba, 25, has spoken out to dismiss claims that he and Mourinho are simply not compatible as rumours persist that he will be leaving this summer.
He told beIN Sports: “People want to hear about the manager and the player. You see some images of me talking with the coach.
“We can disagree but he is still the manager and I am the player.
“Sometimes I see things he doesn’t and sometimes he sees things I can’t. But it doesn’t mean anything is bad.
“It’s good. He is the coach. He decides and I accept and I respond on the pitch.
“Just to wear the shirt to play in Old Trafford, I was here in the academy and it was a dream to play for the first team. I am proud, I know the fans and story of the club.”
Pogba left United’s academy to join Juventus on a free transfer in 2012 — before returning for a world record fee of £89million five years later.
And he enjoyed arguably the best moment of his Old Trafford career as he sparked an incredible comeback from two goals down at the Etihad to delay Manchester City’s title celebrations last month.
He added: “It was all mental – it just came back in the second half. Everyone with the mentality like beasts.
“If you have that mentality all season we would have been fighting and top with Man City for sure.
“It is good when the manager believes in you and the players. When you see and hear that you want to give the best for the manager and the team.”
Pogba and his United team-mates were training today ahead of the Old Trafford clash with Watford, which will be captain Michael Carrick’s send-off.
