Paul Pogba has delivered a scathing verdict on Jose Mourinho’s man-management, accusing the former Manchester United manager of casting players, including himself, aside without explanation.
“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.”
Pogba’s comments came after United piled the pressure on Mourinho with a 3-1 win at Tottenham last Sunday.
Asked about Pogba’s remarks by Sky Sports following Tottenham’s draw at Everton, Mourinho responded: “I would like to say that I couldn’t care less with what he says. I am not interested at all.”
Meanwhile, Harry Kane limped out of Tottenham’s 2-2 draw against Everton last night with his team-mate Eric Dier commenting on the injury after the match.
Dier said: “Obviously it is always worrying when you see him limping because he doesn’t fall over easily. He takes a lot of knocks and gets on with it, but it is obviously early days to say what it is or how bad it is.
“He is a tough boy and he will do as good as he can to be ready.”
Depending on the severity of the issue, Kane could be a doubt for Spurs’ next Premier League fixture at home to Southampton on Wednesday.
Supporters will hope that their club captain can return to full fitness in time for the Carabao Cup final four days later, which will see Mourinho’s men take on Manchester City at Wembley.
Should Kane’s injury prove serious, the England captain could also be in danger of missing Euro 2020 games when the tournament kicks off in June.
