Manchester United manager, Jose Mourinho has hit back at ex-Manchester United midfielder Paul Scholes over a perceived lack of effort.
The United legend, Scholes, had after United’s 0-0 draw with Southampton on Saturday, criticised Pogba over a perceived lack of effort after United’s 0-0 draw with Southampton on Saturday.
United’s gaffer, Jose Mourinho said “It’s not Pogba’s fault he made more money”.
Scholes, who won 11 league titles, three FA Cups and the Champions League twice for United, said the Frenchman has yet to live up to the £89m fee United paid for him in 2016 and does not show enough effort on the pitch.
But after Pogba played a sublimed and influential role in the 2-0 win over Everton on Monday, Mourinho hit back.
He said “I don’t think he [Scholes] comments. He criticises – which is a different thing,”
“Not everyone has to be phenomenal like he was. As a player he was phenomenal, but it doesn’t mean we all have to be phenomenal.
“Sometimes Pogba plays very well, sometimes he plays well and sometimes he doesn’t play well. Pogba tries his best all the time.
“It’s not Paul’s fault that he made much more money than Paul Scholes. It’s not Paul Pogba’s fault, it’s just the way football is.”
