Pogba started on the bench against Fulham yesterday but was not brought on as Manchester United eased to victory.

Blind told the Mirror: “One thing Jose has to do with Pogba is instruct him to play simple.

“He is the kind of player who wants to come up with complicated ­solutions or difficult options. And, in midfield, he wants to have 100,000 touches of the ball.

“He wants to shake off opponents by showing them his strength, a ­double shoulder push or whatever before he turns with the ball.
