Former Arsenal striker Ian Wright has urged Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba to concentrate on playing football and stop his war of words with Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho.

Pogba criticised Mourinho’s tactics following Manchester United’s 1-1 home draw with Wolves on Saturday. Pogba revealed after the draw with Wolves that Manchester United should have an attacking mentality when playing at Old Trafford.

“When we are at home we should attack, attack, attack,” Pogba said after the 1-1 draw with Wolves.

“That’s Old Trafford. We are here to attack. I think teams are scared when they see Man United attacking and attacking. That was our mistake today.”

According to a report on The Sun, Mourinho wasn’t happy with Pogba’s words after the draw with Wolves and reportedly gave him a dressing down in the changing room after the game.

Wright believes Pogba would be better off concentrating on his football and quitting the war of words with Mourinho.

“If I was his big brother I would tell him: Enough’s enough. It’s time you stopped talking now because it’s not doing you any favours. Just do your stuff,” Wright told The Sun.

“The time has come for Pogba to end his war of words with Mourinho.

“The Frenchman must have some powerful allies at Old Trafford for him to come out and say stuff like that. It was a direct dig at his coach.”
