Champions League: What Pogba needs to do under Mourinho – Lampard


Former Chelsea midfielder, Frank Lampard, has said Manchester United’s Paul Pogba needs to start watching where he is going wrong if he is to improve.

Pogba has struggled for form recently and there have been suggestions of a rift between him and manager Jose Mourinho.

Lampard believes Pogba must start to analyse where he is making errors, as well as being more defensively responsible.

“He’s very talented player. Nine assists is good. He’s short on goals slightly but I’m not sure. Obviously the injuries affect you but in the games I’ve seen recently it’s defensive awareness that would be my problem.

“I think maybe we’re mixing it up with maybe he should be in a two or maybe he should be in a three.

“But when you play big games… Tottenham recently, Champions League if he plays tomorrow night, you have to have defensive responsibility whether you’re in a two or whether you’re in a three. That’s your best and then go forward and create because he certainly has the ability to create.

“[He needs to] work it. watch games back, watch yourself, work in training, work on your relationship with the people around you. If anything if you’re not sure about it protect areas and get in the right position as early as you can. From then he’s so athletic he can arrive as many times and create goals,” Lampard said.
