Zlatan Ibrahimovic takes cheeky pop at Paul Pogba in post-match interview

Share

Pogba scored one goal and created another against Benitez's Newcastle United side on Saturday as the Manchester United midfielder made an impressive return from injury in their 4-1 victory at Old Trafford. "If I don't believe that, I'd stop playing".

As well as Pogba and Lukaku, Chris Smalling and Anthony Martial were also on the scoresheet. I'm not anxious, I know what I do.

"No, because lions they don't recover like humans", the Swede was quoted as saying by the Independent.

"But when you can not do that, you have to focus on one thing and that is coming back, and coming back good".

United and Mourinho had come under some criticism prior to Sunday's (AEDT) encounter, with Pogba's absence cited as a major reason for their inconsistent performances.

Pogba has been sidelined with a hamstring injury since the end of September, while Ibrahimovic's injury was even more serious, rupturing his ACL back in April, and he had not been expected to play again until 2018.

And the 24-year-old proved his worth with a superb individual display, but the France star is adamant United's squad have never paid attention to their critics. "[It was] what we had in the beginning of the season with Paul and [Nemanja] Matic, growing up together and being like the engine of the team", the Portuguese manager told BT Sport.

"But we all know - myself, and the fellow players - that some players influence the level of the team".
