What Paul Pogba told Jose Mourinho at half-time during Newcastle game

Paul Pogba inspired Man United come-back against Newcastle United in the Premier league last week, reports have claimed.

Man United went into the game looking for their first win in five games and Newcastle United sent shock waves to the spine of the Red Devils faithfuls after Kenedy and Yoshinori Muto put them in the lead in the first half.

Jose Mourinho men rose the occasion in the second half. Juan Mata, who got in as a sub scored a breathtaking free-kick before the Anthony Martial scored in the equaliser.

The Captain of the day Ashley Young found Alexis Sanchez in injury time of the game and Alexis Sanchez, to the delight of Jose Mourinho, salvaged the three points for his team with a header.

Mourinho quizzed his players on what went wrong in the first half and according to the Sun, Pogba asked the manager to bring on Marouane Fellaini, and allow him drop deep to player closest to the back four.

Arguably, Pogba ended the game as the man of the match as he imposed himself on the game and earned plaudits for his barnstorming display on the day particularly in the second half.

Speaking after the game, Mourinho said:

‘During half-time we opened our hearts and we spoke about tactical changes for two minutes. ‘Then we spoke for eight minutes about other things that I thought would let the players be a little bit more free to face the second half and it became 3-2. Amazing.’
