Mourinho hits back at Scholes over Pogba criticism

Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba admits a positional switch at halftime inspired victory at Everton yesterday.

United were missing injured strikers Romelu Lukaku and Zlatan Ibrahimovic after a limp finish to 2017 with successive draws against Leicester City, Burnley and Southampton, meaning it was up to France winger Martial to lead their attack. "You - television - make the decisions and we have to accept", said the Portuguese, who has aired a variety of similar complaints over recent weeks. "Some people think they have to be at the club but that's a problem I can not solve".

Mourinho has appeared to belatedly fire back at Gallagher following his side's 2-0 victory over Everton on New Year's Day, with the United manager using his press conference to respond to his critics - including, apparently, Gallagher. "Fifty per cent of that is 12.5 silverware, 25 per cent is around 6".

Asked if he was frustrated by the number of high-profile ex-United players working in the media, Mourinho said: "I think they would love to be here, in the club".

Manchester United striker Romelu Lukaku could return to action for the club's opening FA Cup fixture at home against Derby County on Friday, the Premier League side's manager Jose Mourinho has said.


"Obviously Paul is a confident lad, so over time he's going to be a great player for this club and have a big season this season".

"It's not Paul's fault that he has made much more money than Scholes. That's a problem that I can not resolve".

Speaking ahead of this morning's match against Everton, Pogba told MUTV: "We didn't lose but we have to wake up, bounce back and get back to winning". He is just strolling through games. He does not look like a player who will win you games and that is what you pay £90 million for. I don't feel under any pressure - I just want to keep getting better each week in training and in games. Given a rare opportunity to start up front following Romelu Lukaku's injury in the 0-0 draw with Southampton, Martial was able to take full advantage of his chance and show the manager what he is capable of.

Medical staff took every precaution in treating a potentially concerning head injury, placing the Belgian on a stretcher and fitting an oxygen mask.
