Fri 16 April 2021 | 10:07

The World Cup winner was signed by Mourinho for Manchester United for a record-breaking £89 million in 2016, and although the duo achieved three trophies in 2016-17, the relationship between the superstar and the Portuguese broke down.

Pogba told

Sky Sports

on the differences between his last two club bosses: "What I have now with Ole is different, he wouldn't go against the players. He wouldn't go against the players.

"Maybe Ole wouldn't pick them, but it's not like he puts them on the side like they don't exist anymore. That's the difference between Mourinho and Ole.

"Once I had a great relationship with Mourinho, everybody saw that, and the next day you don't know what happened. That's the strange thing I had with Mourinho and I cannot explain to you because even I don't know."

In contrast to Mourinho, the Frenchman was full of praise for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, who he believes is being rewarded because he inspires confidence in those at his disposal.

The 28-year-old midfielder added: "Maybe [Solskjaer's methods work] because he is a bit closer to the people. Every coach has their own way to coach and deal with players, and as a player you have to adapt. Sometimes it doesn't suit you and sometimes it does.

"Ole has helped Luke a lot, it was a difficult season with Luke and Mourinho, and he has proved he has the quality he always had and the trust of the manager."

Manchester United will face Roma in the Europa League’s semi-finals as they’re closing intangible success this season.
