Paul Pogba blasts former boss Jose Mourinho

Manchester United star Paul Pogba has re-opened his feud with old boss Jose Mourinho, slamming his management methods at Old Trafford.

The midfielder and Mourinho had a rocky relationship towards the end of the manager’s time in charge at Old Trafford.

Contrasting Mourinho with current boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, the French star also accused Mourinho of using diversion tactics after his Tottenham side went down 3-1 to United last Sunday.

Pogba was stripped of the United vice-captaincy in September 2018 in front of his team-mates and the pair had a training ground bust-up shortly afterwards that was picked up by TV cameras.

Mourinho was sacked three months later and replaced by Solskjaer, who is aiming to win his first silverware as United boss in the UEFA Europa League.

Speaking to Sky Sports, Pogba was scathing in his view of Mourinho, saying: “What I have now with Ole is different, he wouldn’t go against the players. 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.”
