EPL: Redknapp Advises Mourinho On What To Do To Pogba After 2-2 Draw With Chelsea

Manchester United star, Paul Pogba

Former Tottenham Hotspur star, Jamie Redknapp, has urged Manchester United manager, Jose Mourinho to stop midfielder, Paul Pogba from marking opponents during set-pieces.

Redknapp stated this following United’s Premier League 2-2 draw with Chelsea at Stamford Bridge on Saturday.

Pogba was at fault for the Blues’ opener, after losing the Blues defender, Antonio Rudiger at a corner to allow the centre-back a free header.

United went in front thanks to Anthony Martial’s brace, but were denied victory by midfielder, Ross Barkley’s stoppage-time equaliser.

Redknapp, however, believes Pogba has a history of bad marking.

“I’ve seen him [Pogba] marked man for man before,” Redknapp told Sky Sports.

“He did it a couple of years ago against Liverpool; he kept losing his man, time and time again. I don’t think he’s disciplined enough.

“Jose Mourinho needs to take him off set-pieces. Some people can’t mark.”

“The problem is ill-discipline. I mentioned Paul Pogba before the game and what he has to do, but he doesn’t do well here.

“It’s very simple, stay with your man. They’ve gone man for man. Rudiger has got too much for him. He’s pointing, he’s not concentrating.

“He doesn’t do his job and its ill-discipline and it’s cost his team.”
