Only Paul Pogba can explain poor Manchester United form

MANCHESTER, England (ah fat talk ball) - Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba's poor club form is not due to an injury he suffered last year and only the Frenchman can explain his struggles this season, manager Jose Mourinho has said.

Pogba picked up a hamstring injury in a Champions League tie against Basel last September and has not been able to replicate his early season form since returning.

The 25-year-old France international has had further spells on the sidelines this season due to minor injuries and poor form and has not started in United's last three games.

Asked about the reasons for Pogba's dip in performance, Mourinho added: "Ask him when you have a chance what he thinks about it... I work (to get the best out of him). It's the only thing I can do. I cannot do anything else.

Pogba scored and set up a goal to inspire France to a 3-1 friendly win away to World Cup hosts Russia on Tuesday.
