Jose Mourinho accuses Paul Pogba of showing no respect

Jose Mourinho accuses Paul Pogba of showing no respect

The former Spurs midfielder stated that the trajectory of both clubs so far this season and in recent years suggests that the move away from Tottenham will be a step down for the player.

Mourinho's side found themselves 2-0 down to the Saints after the opening 20 minutes but they managed to make amends before the break with Romelu Lukaku and Ander Herrera finding the scoresheet from impressive deliveries from Marcus Rashford. Ashley Young is suspended.

We lost so many balls in the transition to the last third. He played all 90 minutes of the match, but he managed to be responsible for nearly half of the 30 possessions United lost in this match.

Saturday's game with Southampton certainly looked like a relatively simple way to get positive momentum going but it proved to be anything but.

The Red Devils are now 16 points off the top of the Premier League, and six points off fourth-placed Chelsea ahead of Sunday's fixtures.

He added: "In respect to my players we don't have too many mad dogs, players who always bite the ball on the pitch, so [the loss] was nothing to do with the system".

"The second goal was a direct free-kick and the first goal was because we don't press enough the ball when our block is low, which is something that we do wrong", Mourinho said.

About to turn 35-years-old in January, this is not a viable long-term option, nor one that would titillate a whole host of Manchester United fans.

Mourinho lauded Nemanja Matic and Scott McTominay but was critical about the rest of his midfield.

"They don't understand that simplicity is genius".

The 55-year-old used the example of Tottenham to highlight his point, explaining that the days of plundering the north London side for their best players - as Sir Alex Ferguson was able to do a few times - are over.

"We had Good spirit, good fight, good comeback and great examples of players fighting".

"It doesn't matter the system we play, it has to do with the characteristics of the players".

Ever since Mourinho's spell at Real Madrid, he appears to have picked one player to battle with in order to lay down his authority, with mixed results: Iker, Casillas, Eden Hazard, now Paul Pogba.
