Manchester United completed the record signing of Paul Pogba last summer hoping that the French international will turn the fortunes around at Old Trafford.
However, the Red Devils and Pogba have so far struggled to find consistency. United are currently 6th in the league and last night, they were ousted from the FA Cup by Chelsea.
In the 35th minute of the game, Spanish international Ander Herrera was sent off and made things easier for the Blues. Kante scored in the 51st minute of the game and Chelsea then held on to win the contest.
In all fairness, Paul Pogba was once again ineffective and that is what Man United fans believe as well.
However, Mourinho clearly had other ideas. After the game, the former Chelsea manager claimed that Pogba was not just United’s best player last night, he was in fact the “best player on the pitch” (Mirror).
Here are a few social media reactions, which show that Mourinho and Man Utd fans were in total disagreement over Pogba’s performance vs Chelsea.

I was so happy when Pogba came back, but just hasn’t been the player i thought he was going to be. Not even sure what his job is tonight?

Seeing criticism of Pogba again. Totally unjustified tonight. Was very good till the sending off, barely saw the ball after. Outnumbered
