Jose Mourinho Lashes Out at 'Critical' Scholes, Says Attitude Fueled by Jealousy

United now sit at the second place in the Premier League table, 12 points behind their rivals Manchester City - having played one extra game than City and third-placed Chelsea.

Another who has been aiming digs is Noel Gallagher, who took great delight in his hit Wonderwall blaring out of the away dressing room at Old Trafford after last month's derby win.

"I think even the first half after 10 or 15 minutes the team was in control".

"The performance was really good, so maybe I'm lucky this time and the kings of the rock and roll that said I was underperforming last match maybe will say this time I performed".

Pogba added that wherever he plays on the pitch, "I'm playing for Manchester United, and that gives me a smile".

Jose Mourinho has obviously got a point about Manchester City buying full-backs for £50m and his comment on PSG being able to purchase so much quality in depth.

Mourinho knows Scholes would love to be employed by United - because he said so.

Mourinho also praised former England midfielder Scholes, who was one of United's key players when they dominated the Premier League under Alex Ferguson between 1992 and 2013. "I think he will be a player we have high hopes for, definitely".

Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho blasted club legend Paul Scholes after seeing his team win at Everton - but was the boss right or wrong? Paul Pogba teed up Martial on the edge of the area and he stroked a sublime finish into the top corner for his ninth goal of the season.

Mourinho said: "I don't think he [Scholes] comments". The criticism of his own players, the suggestion that his club have let him down in the transfer market and the framing of his own side as underdogs; it's all there.

If Paul one day decides to be a manager, I wish that he can be 25% as successful as myself.

"Sometimes Pogba plays very well, sometimes he plays well and sometimes he doesn't play well".

"50 percent of that is 12.5 silverware, 25 percent is around six". I think Scholes will be in history as a phenomenal player, not as a pundit. It was a welcome tonic for Mourinho amid reports the United manager is beginning to lose the support of his players after branding them "childish" and "immature" and admitting the squad needs major investment to catch City.
