Former Manchester United striker, Zlatan Ibrahimovich has revealed the reason why there was a disagreement between Jose Mourinho and Paul Pogba at Old Trafford.
According to Ibrahimovich who moved to LA Galaxy from United, Pogba was not given the chance to express himself on the field of play due to Mourinho lacking confidence in him.
However, since Ole Gunnar Solskjaer took over as manager at Old Trafford, things have been different for Pogba who now enjoys what he lacked under Mourinho.
Reacting to the noticed changes, Ibrahimovich said,
“There are these players that need to be free, they need to feel free to do what they are able to do under the disciple of the coach.
“Obviously, he has his tactics, he has that, but some players they go above these limits, and you need to let them be free, and I think Paul [Pogba] is one of them.
“Paul didn’t feel confidence from the coach, and the coach didn’t feel confidence for Paul.
“It’s difficult to perform as a player if you don’t have confidence from the coach and you don’t have that energy, that motivation, and Jose felt the same thing about Paul.
“These things happen, and that is part of the game also; I mean, not everybody can go among each other and do well together.
“I feel like you come to a moment where it is too blocked and one goes or the other one goes. At this moment, the coach left, and Paul is more free now,” Ibrahimovic told ESPN.
