Manchester United news: Paul Pogba thanks Jose Mourinho for helping him win trophies and ‘improve as a person’

Paul Pogba has thanked former boss Jose Mourinho for helping him ‘improve as a person’ and win trophies at Manchester United.

After two-and-a-half years at the club, Mourinho was sacked by United on Tuesday following a series of poor performances and rifts with players.

His relationship with Pogba was believed to be the most problematic, and an ill-timed social media post, which was quickly deleted, after Mourinho’s dismissal only furthered that belief.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, who has been placed in temporary charge, won his first match 5-1 at Cardiff City and afterwards Pogba paid tribute to his former manager.

“I know you’re waiting for something about Jose, about the result today,” he told reporters after the win.

“Obviously, we are very happy with the result. We played well, the performance of the team was great and I know you want to ask me but, ‘Oh yeah with Jose..’

“With Jose, we won trophies and I want to thank him for that. Not everything worked well but things went well, we won trophies.

“Winning trophies makes you improve as a person as well and that’s it. That’s the past. I want to thank him for that.
