Tottenham manager Mourinho claims Man Utd star Pogba should've been sent off

Jose Mourinho has said Paul Pogba should have been sent off in Tottenham's 3-1 loss to Manchester United on Sunday.

United came from behind to claim all three points thanks to goals from Fred, Edinson Cavani and Mason Greenwood.

But Mourinho was annoyed with the officiating, pointing to Pogba's elbow on Serge Aurier as a potential red-card.

"We played against a good team, lots of strong players in midfield. We had great occasions to score a second goal. We hit the woodwork and were dominant in that period," he told Sky Sports.

"My opinion was a good game. My opinion was we didn't deserve this result at all. We were unlucky because maybe Pogba should get a red card for an elbow on Serge Aurier."

Asked about United's goal which was ruled out, Mourinho said: "I don't know anything anymore [about VAR]. I watched Fulham versus Wolves. I don't understand anything anymore. Sometimes you get, sometimes you don't get. I don't know how to comment. You don't celebrate a goal because you are afraid."
