Ibrahimovic backs Paul Pogba to reproduce World Cup form

Pogba joined United for a then world record £89m in August 2016, but fell out of favour at times during the 2017-18 campaign.

Pogba quickly realized that his club supporters at Manchester United may not have appreciated the rendition, so he made it clear that he was just joking.

The player has not been consistent at Old Trafford, while earlier reports claimed that the midfielder and Mourinho clashed in the dressing room.

The rumour mills went into overdrive after the flashy midfielder was forced to watch some games from the dugout, but both player and manager insisted there was no problem and normal order was restored towards the end of the 2017/18 season.

"I don't mind Pogba dancing now", joked the iconic Roy Keane while speaking on ITV. I sent a nice message before the World Cup and during it, I did not disturb anyone.

As France beat Croatia in the final and won the World Cup for only the second time in their history, this exhilarating tournament - for once, did not produce the unexpected as it had done pretty much throughout these last 30 days.

"Forgive me for what they do not know and make me better than what they think of me".

"He's very sad. It's not good for him or me, not good for anyone", said Mourinho. "He's entitled to have a dance now he's won the World Cup".

Speaking at his first news conference of United's pre-season tour of the United States, Mourinho confirmed he passed on congratulations to Pogba and hailed his performances during the latter stages of the competition.

Paul Pogba gave a stirring team talk to his France teammates before the World Cup last-16 game against Argentina.

Paul Pogba might have reached the pinnacle of his career by winning the World Cup this summer, but Jose Mourinho couldn't resist issuing a word of caution to Manchester United's erratic midfielder on Wednesday. He is also set to miss the first game of the Premier League season against Leicester at Old Trafford on August 10.
