​Mourinho explains role of Pogba at Man Utd

Paul Pogba didn't start in United's win against Huddersfield and boss Jose Mourinho answered the question on whether he will play this weekend.

"Paul had a very professional behavior. This week was not different to what Paul is every week. He works well, he's a good professional He likes to train. I've never had a single problem with him. He likes to train.

"For me Paul is a midfield player. He's not a left back, he's not a striker. When people ask his best position: he's a midfield player. It depends on the tactical system but he will always be a midfielder.

"Then with so many opinions, and we are in a world of opinions, people can get confused. There is no confusion between me and Paul. It's difficult to play a midfielder with more potential than Paul."
