Pogba: United Stopped Sleeping Against Everton

Romelu Lukaku

Jose Mourinho launched an astonishing attack on Manchester United legend Paul Scholes on Monday night.Scholes has been outspoken on the form of Paul Pogba, claiming the midfielder is unfit and "just strolling through games".

"The hypocrisy of the man is staggering", he added about Mourinho's post-match comments, which took issue with the nature of City's win. Other websites, like Football365, have gone even further.

"In terms of the knowledge of the group and the progress in my time here, I'm the best person to do it". The point about predictions is that they invariably rely on hunches rather than certainty.

The club are into the knockout round of the Champions League and, although winning the league title seems most unlikely at this stage, there is acceptance that the pace set by City at the league summit this season has greatly exceeded expectations.

The legendary Englishman has indeed criticised the club heavily since turning into a pundit and some speculate it's due to him wanting Ryan Giggs to become the next manager.

And Mourinho went on to suggest that several former United players had an agenda against his team as they sought a return to the club, which he would not accommodate. He doesn't smile enough or celebrate wildly enough to prove that he's glad to be at Manchester United, according to some.

This second-half display will have pleased United manager Jose Mourinho, though.

Speaking after a game which Pogba bossed from start to finish, Mourinho said: "I think the only thing Paul Scholes does is to criticize, which is a different thing".

Possible violation of National Football League concussion protocol to be probed
Backup quarterback Derek Anderson took over under center while Newton was examined in the medical tent on the Panthers' sideline. As he walked to the sideline, Newton went down to the ground, where he pointed to his eye as trainers checked him out.

"I think they (ex-players turned pundits) would love to be here, in the club and that's a problem that I can not resolve".

"Our pride, our effort, everything was top class and on top of it we played very well", Mourinho said.

"We played with aggression but a positive way".

EAMON DUNPHY has hit out at Manchester United's French star Paul Pogba and branded him "a pretty ordinary player". "It's just the way football is".

The Belgian striker sustained a head injury and was stretchered off during United's draw against Southampton on Saturday, 30 December.

Mourinho was not done with Scholes. He calls things as he sees it and we should be grateful for that.

Is Scholes always unnecessarily critical rather than simply offering his observations?

Giggs was an assistant to previous United manager Louis Van Gaal.
