Man Utd ace Pogba in stunning Mourinho attack: Like I didn't exist

Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba has launched a furious attack on Tottenham manager Jose Mourinho.

The midfielder has opened up on the turbulent spell under Mourinho at Old Trafford and pointed out what has changed under new boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

"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."

He had the last laugh when they met Mourinho's Tottenham at the weekend, with Pogba taking the opportunity to have another swipe.

"We won the game, he lost the game and he doesn't want to speak about the game, he wants to speak about the dad of someone, that's what he does," Pogba added. "Everybody knows him, it's very Mourinho."
