Gallas reveals why Man Utd boss Mourinho benched Pogba.

Former Chelsea star William Gallas believes Jose Mourinho is punishing Paul Pogba because he knows he can perform better.

Pogba was surprisingly left out of United's starting line-up for their Champions League last-16 first leg tie against Sevilla on Wednesday night.
And Gallas, who played under Mourinho at Stamford Bridge, thinks Mourinho has become frustrated by Pogba's apathy.
"I had Mourinho for two years at Chelsea and he was with me like he was with the other players," he told SFR Sport.
"He had the habit of stinging the players into action but I think if he stings you it is because he rates you and he thinks you have quality and he wants you at 100 per cent.

"This is why he has had a go at Paul because he knows Paul can do a lot better.
"He has been stung and he reacted."
