Carrick pleased to have influenced Pogba's derby-day heroics

Carrick pleased to have influenced Pogba's derby-day heroics

Paul Pogba was the key figure in United's recovery against City and though happy with his form and workrate in training, Mourinho has told his most expensive acquisition to aim for consistency rather than headlines.

But Pogba produced a fine second-half display which included two excellent goals to inspire a turnaround and he later said a conversation with Carrick - who is set to join Mourinho's coaching staff at the end of the season - played a major part. I instructed him to be fixed in a certain stage, ' acknowledged Mourinho.

"The challenge he has is to find a degree of stability and not to keep going from good match to so-so match to bad match". "From my discussions with the owners already, I know there is a genuine desire to build a team with greater goal power and attacking threat which can capture the fans' imagination", he said.

The Spaniard said he has held talks with United about a new contract but, for now, his future is uncertain.

"I will tell you what I told him after the match and it's exactly what I told him".

Will United be able to topple their rivals next season and win back bragging rights in the city?

'I was not going to celebrate like insane, for me we should play with great focus and intensity and try and kill the top four situation and be more stable in second.




"It is just football, we can not have just 11 players", he said.

"They won the title because they were the best team".

"I saw lots of people on the moon because we won against City".

In truth, City have looked down on everyone this season virtually since the first ball was kicked last August.

However, the Spaniard was involved in controversy after the game after video footage showed him spitting on Manchester City's crest, but the midfielder denies it was deliberate.

"But we are working really hard to try and finish second".
