On the eve of the international break, the France national team coach Didier Deschamps reached out to the press to express his thoughts regarding the recent argument between Jose Mourinho and Paul Pogba.

The 24-year-old midfielder has already started a public dispute with his Manchester United manager, which resulted in some miserable Red Devils’ performance over the last few weeks.

Pogba, in particular, seems to be far from the top of his game, which was clearly obvious against West Ham United when Mourinho took him off the field 20 minutes before the final whistle.

Ahead of Les Bleus encounters with Germany and Iceland, Deschamps told the press he is not at all concerned about Pogba’s internal issues with Mourinho.

‘”I’m not worried at all, and I’m not Jose Mourinho.

“I do not want to interfere in their affairs, everything is clear with Paul, you have to balance things out. The setting is different when they find themselves in the French team.”

The former Juventus star is a notable first-team member at the national team. He even scored a goal in France’s 4-2 win over Croatia in the World Cup Final, as Deschamps hopes to see him at his best during the international break.
