Jose Mourinho reveals advice he gave Paul Pogba after Manchester derby heroics


"Congratulations to Manchester City on their Premier League title win", they wrote on their official Twitter account. Jay Rodriguez headed home in the 73rd minute.

"It hurts [for Manchester City to win the title].

They have lost only two matches because they are the best team and are champions".

United's record signing was widely praised following a dominant performance in the Manchester derby last weekend but was withdrawn with half an hour to go in the Red Devils' defeat against West Brom.

United's afternoon was symptomatic of their entire season.

With five league goals to his name, Pogba is still two behind Coutinho's tally in the English top flight this season.

Following the 20-time English champions shock defeat at home, the Portuguese tactician revealed he trusts in his ability to lead sides to Premier League glory but maintained it can not be achieved without consistent efforts from the team.

After the match, Mourinho made it clear he was unimpressed with his players' efforts, lack of fluidity and desire.

"I know how to win, I believe in myself but I don't play", he added.

"I think he has to try to keep that level of stability and, from that stability of course will appear the special match with the special performance, like it happened against City".

"The mental level, the day by day, everything must be consistent until the last day so one of the things we have to improve is consistency".

"Everything must be consistent until the last day". We didn't want (to play) or couldn't play simple, everything was slow, one more flick, trick, turn.
