In a recent interview with the Sunday Telegraph, he stated:

“When I was director of football at Real Madrid I had to evaluate the players coming through the youth ranks. We had some who were very good footballers. They had technique, they had athleticism, they had drive, they were hungry.

"But they lacked what I call knowing-how-to-play-football. They lacked decision making. They lacked positioning. They didn't have the subtle sensitivity of football: how a player should move within the collective. And for many, I wasn't sure they were going to learn".

“You see, strength, passion, technique, athleticism, all of these are very important. But they are a means to an end, not an end in itself. They help you reach your goal, which is putting your talent at the service of the team and, by doing this, making both of you and the team greater.

"In situations like that, I just have to say, Gerrard's a great footballer, but perhaps not a great player."

He never compete's for headers.

The 1st goal started because of it.

Got beaten by Victor Moses ya kna.

 

he showed in glimpses what he can do today. Wasn’t a MOTM performance by a long shot.

Pogba had Kante on toast many times today

I was messing about being best player on the pitch, but he was good today other than the header for the chelsea goal.

I've seen Mourinho leave Ozil out of an El Clasico starting 11 to play a midfield trio of Pepe, Khedira and Alonso so this isn't a shock to me

That's because he lost 5-0 playing Ozil in that midfield

Pogba is a luxury player tbh, not combative enough, I can see why Mourinho is getting annoyed.

He's up there in assists but he needs to contribute in more ways.

Mourinho need to promote this youth next season

He’s the same player he was when José signed him. One of my biggest bugbears in football Is when a manager signs a player known for playing in a certain position/role and tries shoehorn them into another.

Just don’t get it 🤷🏽‍♂️
