Mourinho Will Not Change His Formation With Paul Pogba

Mourinho has strongly indicated Manchester United will retain the 4-2-3-1 formation even though Paul Pogba is now available.

“Sometimes even without you noticing we change details,” Mourinho explained. “So if you are expecting us to change dramatically the system to fit the player, we are not going to do that. We are not going to play with five at the back, because at Juventus he was playing with five at the back and he played there for many years in that system, we are not going to do that, so we are not going for dramatic changes.”

“But there are details in the game that we have to change. Against Leicester, I played Michael Carrick, against Bournemouth I played Ander Herrera, they are different players, and because they are different players we change the way they play, we changed the way Fellaini played, because Fellaini was the one that was playing with them.”

“So when we play with Schneiderlin or Pogba, or the guys we have, then there are always details that will be changed but not the master lines of our model of play.”
