Fans have been saying Mourinho owes a huge apology.
Manchester United fans are over the moon. Ever since the appointment of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, Manchester United fans are happy with the performance of their team. With the likes of Pogba, Martial, De Gea and Lukaku all hitting good form, it’s hard to see why they were struggling under Mourinho. With nine wins out of ten it seems Manchester United may finish in the top 4. Following Saturday’s victory over Fulham, it seems fans have gone mad following the performances of Pogba and Martial.
It seemed that Manchester United certainly were intent on making it eight league wins out of nine for interim manager after travelling down to Premier League strugglers Fulham. United had previously collected 22 points from a possible 24 since Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was announced as interim manager at the end of 2018.
On Saturday afternoon it was the same again. The Red Devils showed no mercy from the off to their hosts the Cottagers. They went 2-0 up in the first half of the game. It was one of the main benefactors of the Solskjaer renaissance, that man Paul Pogba, scoring for the seventh time in his last eight league games. Pogba’s France compatriot Anthony Martial then offered up some further fantastic French flair to take the ball from even before the half-way mark on the Craven Cottage pitch. It sent the travelling fans into an absolutely frenzied bean-feas. The social media ablaze with misty-eyed adoration for the dynamic duo of Pogba and Martial. One fan tweeted, “Jose Mourinho owes Paul Pogba a huge apology.”
Another one tweeted, ” Wow. Pogba best player in the league. Martial best winger in the world.” One fan tweeted, “ATM, Pogba is the best midfielder in the world. No doubt about that.” Another tweet said, “A periodical reminder that Jose Mourinho spent the summer trying to sell Anthony Martial and Paul Pogba. Get a new contract for Marouane Fellaini and buy Harry Maguire.”
Manchester United fans have every right for praising Pogba and Martial. Both the players were rumored to be leaving Old Trafford under Mourinho. However, under Ole they have showed why United want them. Fans will be expecting more such performances from the duo in future.
