Paul Pogba insists that there is no problem between him and Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho.
The relationship between the pair has appeared to be strained in recent weeks with Mourinho criticising Pogba.
But United’s £89million record signing has moved to ease tensions at the club by stating that they both have great respect for each other.
Paul Pogba says there is no problem between him and Jose Mourinho at Manchester United
‘I do not have any problem with Mourinho, I do not think he has either,’ Pogba told French TV programme Canal Football.
‘He’s [Mourinho] the coach, he’s going to make choices and I as a player, I accept them. That is all.’
Sportsmail reported last week that Mourinho is prepared to sell Pogba this summer for £140m.
The manager has become increasingly frustrated with Pogba’s attitude in recent weeks, but executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward is desperate for the midfielder to succeed.

The club are reluctant to sanction a move just two years after splashing out on getting him from Italian champions Juventus.
Pogba maintains that transfer rumours don’t bother him but he didn’t rule out a move away when asked about his future at Old Trafford.
He said ‘For now I’m at Manchester United, I really only think about the present. Transfers are not in my head.
‘You know, if I listened to everyone, I would be everywhere.’

Pogba argues with Mourinho at Wembley during a defeat by Tottenham in January
Pogba was substituted during defeats by Tottenham and Newcastle earlier in the year before he was left out of the starting lineup for both legs of their Champions League last 16 defeat by Sevilla.
Despite starring in the Manchester derby turnaround earlier this month he was removed from last week’s miserable defeat by West Brom, which handed the title to Manchester City.
Up to five first-team players could leave Old Trafford this summer including Pogba, Anthony Martial, Matteo Darmian and Daley Blind.
