Former Man United manager Mourinho responds to Pogba comments

2 min read

Jose Mourinho says he ‘couldn’t care less’ what Paul Pogba has to say about his reign as Manchester United manager.

Speaking earlier this week the French midfielder criticised the management methods used by his former boss Mourinho by comparing them with the new styles adopted by Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

Pogba, who was signed by Mourinho, was one of the many players to fall out with the Portuguese coach during his time in charge of United, most notably in a training ground row after the player was stripped of the vice-captaincy in September 2018.

“What I have now with Ole is different, he wouldn’t go against the players,” Pogba told Sky Sports. “He wouldn’t go against the players.

“Maybe Ole wouldn’t pick them, but it’s not like he puts them on the side like they don’t exist anymore. That’s the difference between Mourinho and Ole.

“Once I had a great relationship with Mourinho, everybody saw that, and the next day you don’t know what happened. That’s the strange thing I had with Mourinho and I cannot explain to you because even I don’t know. So, yeah.”

Mourinho was asked about the comments after his Tottenham side drew 2-2 with Everton on Friday and he hit back by suggesting he couldn’t care less what Pogba thinks.

“I would like to say that I couldn’t care less with what he says,” he told Sky Sports. “I couldn’t care less. Not interested at all.”
