Jose Mourinho claims he could not “care much less” about what Paul Pogba is saying after a Manchester United midfielder accused him of going “against the players”.
Mourinho made Pogba as the most costly player within the world following his appointment in 2016 as Manchester United manager.
Pogba was instrumental in United’s double declare to the Europa League and League Cup in 2017, however the pair had an uneasy relationship earlier than Mourinho was dismissed in December 2018 and succeeded by Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

Mourinho’s relationship with a few of his players had deteriorated following that first marketing campaign and it was stories of a coaching spot with Pogba after the French midfielder was faraway from United vice-captaincy in September 2018.
“What I’ve now with Ole is totally different, it would not go against the players. He would not go against the players, ” Pogba said Sky Sports activities.
“Ole may not choose them, however it’s not like he places them on the side so they do not exist anymore. That is the distinction between Mourinho and Ole.
“As soon as I had a great relationship with Mourinho, everybody noticed that, and the subsequent day you do not know what occurred. That is the bizarre factor I had with Mourinho and I am unable to clarify to you as a result of even I do not know. ”
Pogba’s feedback got here after United ramped up the strain on Mourinho with a 3-1 win at Tottenham last Sunday.
Solskjaer and Mourinho clashed in a heated exchange of phrases after United boss was sad when Son Heung-min went down within the run-up to controversial opener Edinson Cavani.
Mourinho said he was left “deeply disappointed” by Solskjaer’s allegations he wouldn’t feed his son if he had behaved like a Son.
And now Mourinho has responded to Pogba’s feedback suggesting that the Portuguese coach goes against the players at Old Trafford.
Mourinho said Sky Sports activities: “I want to say that I could not care much less what he says. We will not care much less. In no way . ”
In the meantime, Harry Kane dropped out of Tottenham’s 2-2 draw against Everton last evening with team-mate Eric Dier commenting on the post-match injury.
Dier said: “Clearly it is all the time worrying once you see it tightening as a result of it does not fall over simply. It takes a number of beating and casting, however it’s clearly early days to say what it’s or how bad it’s.
“He is a tricky boy and will do as well as he can to be ready.”
