Jose Mourinho Angry With This Manchester United Legend

Manager Jose Mourinho has hit back at former Manchester United midfielder Paul Scholes for his recent criticism of Paul Pogba.

Scholes, working as a pundit for BT Sport, questioned the £89m midfielder’s fitness, attitude and position, after the 0-0 draw against Southampton.

“I think the only thing Paul Scholes does is criticise,” said Mourinho.

“Pogba tries his best all the time. Scholes will be in history as a phenomenal player. Not as a pundit.”

Scholes’ comments came after United’s third successive draw, on Saturday.

The 43-year-old, who won 11 league titles at Old Trafford, had said: “He does not look like a player who will win you games and that is what you pay £90m for.

“No-one in England should be getting near him, but he is being asked to do a role he is not comfortable in.

“You have to say the manager has to take responsibility for that.”
