France boss Deschamps believes that Manchester United's stuttering form has been affecting Pogba in recent weeks after he linked up with his national team-mates.

France manager Didier Deschamps has spoken again publicly about Paul Pogba's situation at Manchester United.

Pogba, 27, has been in and out of the Manchester United team this season, with the French midfielder having only started four of the Red Devils' seven games in the top flight this term.

Now on worldwide duty with France, Pogba has said that coming away to meet his countrymen has been a breath of fresh air.

Didier Deschamps confirmed Kylian Mbappe would be fit for France's clash against Sweden after they reached the Nations League Finals. Anthony, today, is more fulfilled and in better physical and psychological conditions, obviously'. "I knew that before the game", Deschamps said at a press conference on Friday ahead of their game against Portugal.

'That game was meant to get him some rhythm. When you see the result, it's hard to remember the positive. Obviously Paul isn't in the best period.
