José Mourinho hits back at Paul Scholes after Everton win

Paul Pogba joined NBC crew Arlo White and Lee Dixon on the Goodison Park pitch after he starred in Manchester United's 2-0 win at Everton on Saturday, and admitted it feels good when Jose Mourinho takes the leash off the creative midfielder.

Mourinho also suggests that the former footballer is jealous of the French midfielder, Pogba, because of the salary he receives. That does not mean we all have to be phenomenal.

"Jesse Lingard - one thing is to be a young talent, another thing is to be a very good player".

"It's not that they can't compete financially, but the profile of the players they have are all very different", he told Sky Sports News. 'He doesn't comment, he criticises.'It's not Paul Pogba's fault that he makes much more money than Paul Scholes.

Scholes singled out Paul Pogba, the club's record signing, after his anonymous performance in the weekend draw with Southampton. 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. In my mind Paul Scholes is a phenomenal player, one of the best I've ever seen playing in midfield. 'So 25 is around six trophies. If he is 25 per cent he will be quite happy.

Allardyce, meanwhile, criticised his players for the manner in which they conceded each goal. He gave so much to my club that I can only thank him for that.

The Man United manager has appeared to take aim at the "kings of rock and roll", who previously accused him of under-performing.

After a tiresome first half at Goodison Park, Jose Mourinho's side upped the tempo after the break and were rewarded as Martial struck from distance just before the hour.

He asked whether Pogba was being played too deep, claimed he too often overplays in the centre of the field and added that: "he probably does the best things in every game of football he plays in but he outweighs it with the bad things he does". If a deal does go through, it could help Mourinho solve a lot of his problems in the attacking department.

The United boss recently said that the near £300million he has spent since being appointed as Louis van Gaal's successor in the summer of 2016 is "not enough" to compete with Manchester City. Lukaku may be back Mourinho said striker Romelu Lukaku, left out against his old club after a clash of heads in United's previous game, could be back for Friday's FA Cup tie against Derby.
