 MANAGER JOSE MOURINHO SAYS TACTICAL REASON BEHIND REMOVAL OF MIDFIELDER PAUL POGBA IN NEWCASTLE DEFEAT

 

JOSE MOURINHO has revealed that PAUL POGBA was not injured, explaining that his choice to substitute the Manchester United midfielder during their 1-0 loss to Newcastle was a tactical one.

 

The star was removed in the 66th minute, as the Red Devils struggled to break the Magpies down at Saint James’ Park.

 

MICHAEL CARRICK came on for POGBA, at the same time that JESSE LINGARD replaced JUAN MATA, and Mourinho has explained that he made the change in order to tweak his formation, though it had little effect.

 

United are now 16 points behind leaders Manchester City, who can win the league if they are victorious in their next six games.
