Ian Wright has urged Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba to let his feet do the talking, after another dig at Jose Mourinho.

Pogba and Mourinho’s relationship has been under the microscope for the opening two months of the season, with the World Cup winner reportedly unhappy at Old Trafford.

After Saturday’s draw with Wolves, for the second time this season, Pogba appeared to air his dirty laundry in public, criticising the tactical approach to the game which saw United drop two more points.

He urged United to ‘attack, attack, attack’ and when pushed on the reason for their display, added: “I can’t tell you because I’m a player – it’s not me.”

Pogba’s inconsistent performances at United were encapsulated in his two very different efforts last week; he was instrumental in the 3-0 Champions League win at Young Boys and lacklustre against Wolves.

Now Wright believes Pogba is doing more harm than good by coming out after a game and taking on the manager.

“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 wrote in his column in 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.”
