Paul Pogba reacted to being benched against Huddersfield in “a very professional way”, according to Jose Mourinho.
The France international has shone this season but a poor display in the midweek defeat at Tottenham was followed by dropping to the bench against Huddersfield.
Pogba came on in the 65th minute and his long pass to pick out Juan Mata played a major part in the build up to the penalty that eventually reaped a second goal for United.
“The reaction you saw: coming to the pitch with great desire to play,” Mourinho said of Pogba’s response.
“To be honest, at half-time he was already – because I can analyse body language – showing that he was ready.
“Ready with physio, he was already starting his warming up, so I think he showed the way he took it in a very professional way.”
