Jose Mourinho to go more attacking by making this major decision: report

Pogba MUFC

Jose Mourinho could change his formation to accommodate Paul Pogba into a much more attacking setup and get the best out of the French midfielder, according to reports from the Daily Mail.

Although Manchester United started the Premier League season playing an expansive brand of football with a 4-2-3-1 formation, the Red Devils have lately been very defensive in their approach as manager Jose Mourinho has preferred a three man midfield rather than a duo.

While the defensive approach has not been widely appreciated by the fans, there could be a silver lining as the switch to a three man midfielder may mean that superstar Paul Pogba’s future might lie in the free role at the middle of the park.

Playing in a trio rather than among one of the midfield pivot has seen the French midfielder become more involved in the creative aspect of the play and enable to get the best out of him.

United’s recent 2-0 victory over Everton perfectly outlined the destructive ability of Pogba in the attacking sense and this fine performance on Tuesday night has allegedly given food for thought for Mourinho.

As a result, reports from the Daily Mail have stated that Mourinho is going to consider a change in tactics for the long term to get the best out of Pogba and that the Portuguese boss will now be implementing a new 4-3-3 formation in the upcoming games.
