Man Utd seized the victory against Bournemouth last night, and one of the Mancunians to have impressed Jose Mourinho was Paul Pogba.

The 2-0 triumph comprised of goals from Chris Smalling and Romelu Lukaku. The Belgian came off from the bench in the latter half to net a goal with the cooperation of Pogba, who provided a decent assist.

Be that as it may, the striker has revealed what the ex-Chelsea boss told the Frenchman at half-time. The former Everton man told BT Sport: “Of course, we knew we had space going forward. At half-time, he told Paul to keep making those runs.

“He did, it was a perfect pass and the finish was great. It was really important we won today. Now we are well prepared and we have to prepare ourselves for the weekend as well.”

Furthermore, with the squad doing well, the Portuguese tactician conceded he was happy, and was full of praise for his team.

After the match, Mourinho said: “The players were good. It was a good professional performance with good effort and responsibility. There was desire to score and a desire to cope with the defensive responsibilities against a fast team.

“All of them were professional and responsible. The first ambition was to finish in the top four and now one point is probably enough. When we have that resolved we can think about third and second place.

“Everything was faster, it was simple. The players were in the right positions and not trying one more flick, one more trick. Everything was good, I am happy.

“Every player on the pitch was positive and put himself available for Saturday. I’m not very good on man of the match, I’m not a big fan of it, but Paul Pogba played very well. Against Man City he was phenomenal but today he was very, very good. A good choice.”
