Former Chelsea star striker, Didier Drogba, has reportedly revealed his thoughts about the on-going tiff between Jose Mourinho and Paul Pogba.

The duo’s strained relationship has been a hot topic for the past couple of months, and has caught the attention of almost every single individual connected to the football fraternity.

According to the report by Telefoot (via Goal), Drogba is the latest star who has expressed his thoughts on the pair’s nervy situation.

It was claimed by the Phoenix Rising striker that he believes the Special One hasn’t lost faith in the Frenchman, but instead, ‘he likes Paul a lot’. He further added that the Portuguese tactician is ‘only critical of players he likes’.

“It was heated between us more than once, but Jose will never attack people he doesn’t like,” said Drogba. “He likes Paul a lot. It’s why he’s given him a lot of responsibility.”

The ex-Juventus star has started in just four of Red Devils’ last 11 fixtures because of his poor form, which has coincided with a period of illness and injury.

Meanwhile, Tottenham Hotspur star and Pogba’s French comrade, Hugo Lloris, has also shown faith in the 25-year-old ahead of the 2018 World Cup in Russia by claiming that he has ‘no doubt that he [Pogba] will be at his best at the World Cup’.

Lloris said: “Paul remains a member of our team of great value, he is one of our leaders. He has had to deal with some injuries and that notably explains his inconsistency. We know that when he is at 100 percent, he is one of the best players in the world.

“He has gained in maturity, understood his place, understood his responsibilities and I have no doubt that he will be at his best at the World Cup.”
