Manchester United manager, Jose Mourinho has finally spoken on his midfielder, Paul Pogba’s World Cup performance with France.

The Portuguese gaffer also said he was confident that the euphoria of lifting the World Cup will provide a boost to Pogba’s club career at Manchester United.

The 25-year-old Frenchman was instrumental in France’s triumph in Russia.

Mourinho expects to be without Pogba for the start of the season in August and Mourinho said the midfielder will inevitably be in an exuberant mood when he does report back for club duty.

“To win the World Cup can only be a positive thing. It’s difficult to say that to win the World Cup is not good for a player’s career. It’s amazing, fantastic,” said Mourinho in Los Angeles, at the start of
United’ s US pre-season tour.

“So many good players have never had the chance to be world champions or their country is not strong enough.

“For Paul, I think it’s the first World Cup that he has gone to and to be a world champion can only be fantastic.

“It’s a young team, apart from ( Hugo ) Lloris , they have more Euros and World Cups together . So I think the future for him in the French national team can only be brilliant.

“I hope that he understands why he was so good .
That’s the point about his performance level and his contribution to a winning team.

“It’s important for him to understand why he was so good in the second part of the competition. In the final, he was absolutely brilliant.”

Former Arsenal goalkeeper, David Seaman, has told Chelsea to appoint former Gunners boss, Arsene Wenger as Maurizio Sarri’s replacement at Stamford Bridge.

Seaman believes Wenger would be a great choice to replace Sarri at the West London club.

He stated this ahead of Chelsea’s UEFA Europa League round of 32 second-leg tie with Malmo on Thursday night.

Sarri, who joined Chelsea last summer, has been under intense pressure at Stamford Bridge due to the club’s recent poor performances.

“Arsene Wenger would be great at Chelsea, I think. He’d be great anywhere, he’s a fantastic manager,” Seaman said on talkSPORT.

“Arsene always said he wouldn’t come back to the Premier League because of his love for Arsenal that he wouldn’t feel right competing against Arsenal.

“But obviously time’s a healer and he could think. I want to go back there and prove a few people wrong.”
