• Manager believes midfielder should raise intensity for season
• ‘I think World Cup is the perfect habitat for a player like him’
José Mourinho believes Paul Pogba should treat each match for Manchester United with the same intensity as those he played for France at Russia 2018, with the manager suggesting the midfielder can lose focus for his club.
Pogba was among the World Cup’s standout performers, crowning his tournament with a goal in France’s 4-2 win over Croatia in the final. Yet Pogba has struggled to for consistency in United colours and Mourinho indicated how he might achieve this in the coming season.
