​France manager Didier Deschamps has insisted that his star midfielder Paul Pogba's troubles with ​Manchester United are not of his concern, despite reports that the relationship between the player and manager Jose Mourinho has broken down.


Deschamps led France to become world champions in Russia during the summer, and Pogba was one of the star players during the tournament. Despite all the controversies surrounding Mourinho and Pogba, the French manager has insisted that it does not concern him at all.


"I'm not worried at all and I'm not Jose Mourinho," Deschamps said on Thursday, according to ​Goal.



"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."


Pogba will join the France squad during the international break in what will be a welcome relief from the constant media scrutiny regarding the relationship between him and his manager. United are going through a rough patch and have lost three games in the Premier League while also getting knocked out of the Carabao Cup.


Meanwhile, Deschamps has also warned ​Barcelona forward Ousmane Dembele that he would need to remain focused. 


"Ousmane has had a good start to the season with Barca," Deschamps said. "He is decisive and scores a lot of goals, he has to gain in consistency.


"It's up to him to be aware of all the demands of high level football, and I do not think he is fully aware of it."
