Mou reveals plans to convert Pogba to a Central Defender

Pogba has been criticised for his displays for the club so far this season, with many questions pointing at the position he has been used in, but Mourinho has defended the French International.

‘He’s a top player and I think he could be a phenomenal central defender,’ Mourinho told Sky Sports.

‘With the quality of his pass, with his aerial game, with his agility in such a big body, for his defensive side of the game, coming from the back with the ball, he would be a phenomenal central defender, too.

‘The problem is not the position. The problem is not the tactical system. The problem is, in my opinion, somebody that comes from a different style of football and needs this time to be at his best level in football that is really difficult to play, especially for midfield players.’
