Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho has lashed out at Paul Pogba’s critics, claiming the France midfielder “does not give an ass” what they think and that envy is fuelling his detractors.
“It is not Paul’s fault that he gets 10 times the money that some very good players get. It is not Paul’s fault that some fans are in trouble and need every penny to survive and that he is a multi-millionaire,” Mourinho said of Pogba, who turned 24 on Wednesday, at a pre-match news conference.
“I am very happy with Paul. The club is very happy with Paul and I think the good thing is because of his personality he does not listen to what people say. He does not give an ass about criticism.”
