Five Things Mourinho Needs to Learn from Man United Defeat to Real Madrid in Super Cup
It is no longer news that Real Madrid beat Man United 2-1 to lift a second successive Super Cup. Despite the addition of Matic, Real Madrid’s midfield comprising of Toni Kroos, Isco and Casemeiro showed superiority to the much anticipated Man United midfield which had Matic, Herrera and Pogba.
Looking away from the scoreline, Real Madrid were far better than Man United, enjoying a greater share of possession and outplaying United in all departments.
However, there is still room for development from the Manchester United’s team. And we have outlined five important things to note as the Premier League kicks off this weekend
5. Pogba Cannot Lead United Attack:
There is this saying that Matic was bought to allow Pogba more attacking role, but the truth is, Pogba’s inclusion in the three men behind Lukaku in a 4-2-3-1 system will leave Man United one man short of attack. Pogba is slow and at times holds up the ball unnecessarily when he is supposed to attack. You cannot compare a line of attach which had Martial, Mhkitaryan and Rashford, that will suite Mourinho’s counter attacking system better.
