Paul Pogba is unhappy with his role in France team playing alongside Juventus' Blaise Matuidi, according to Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho.

The former world most expensive footballer has been out of action for the Old Trafford outfit since their 3-0 victory over Basel in the Champions League, in which Pogba picked up an hamstring injury.

The injury saw Pogba miss France's 1 - 0 win over Bulgaria, where Matuidi netted the only goal of the game, as well as their 2-1 victory over Belarus.

Pogba, who joined Man United for a then world-record breaking £89million at the start of last season, has now failed to score for France since November 2016.

And his Man United boss believes him being played alongside Matuidi is having a negative impact on his performances for his country.

Speaking to Telefoot, Mourinho said: "He can make football history. He has talent.

"We [Manchester United] have the balance in midfield to occupy space better. With Blaise Matuidi in the France team, I think he isn't happy."

Pogba has played in six Matches for United this season in all competitions and has scored twice.

He has been doing his recuperation in Miami and was a big miss for the Red Devils in their 0-0 draw against perennial rivals Liverpool.
