Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba, upturn in form has been attributed to the help he got from manager Jose Mourinho  for letting him “free” on the pitch.

The 23-year-old France international started slowly after rejoining United for a £89m world-record fee last summer, but he has been instrumental in United’s recent nine-match winning run.

“He told me not to listen to anybody, and that I should just be focused on the pitch and enjoy yourself. That is all I am doing,” Pogba said.

“He talked to me. He made me very comfortable and confident,” said Pogba, who made seven appearances for United before joining Juventus for £1.5m in 2012.

“He said `you know how to play, do what you want’. He let me free on the pitch. He told me just to enjoy myself. That is it. That is all I need to hear from the manager.’’
