Jose Mourinho is furious with Paul Scholes after the United Legend’s recent criticism of Pogba.
Scholes accused Pogba of “strolling” through games and also claimed Mourinho was under-performing as manager.
However, Pogba put up a man of the match performance in Manchester United’s 2-0 victory at Everton and crowned his performance by setting up both goals for Anthony Martial and Jesse Lingard to end a run of three straight Premier League draws for United.
“I think the only thing Paul Scholes does is criticise,” said Mourinho. “I don’t think he comments, I think he criticises, which is a different thing.
“I think Scholes will be in history as a phenomenal player, not as a pundit.
“Not every one of us has to be phenomenal like he was as a player. That doesn’t mean that we all have to be phenomenal.
“Paul Pogba tries to do his best all the time. Sometimes he plays very well, sometimes he plays well, sometimes he doesn’t play so well.
“It’s not Paul’s fault that he made much more money than Paul Scholes. It’s just the way football is.
“If Paul [Scholes] one day decides to be a manager, I wish that he can be 25 per cent as successful as myself.
“Fifty per cent of that is 12.5 silverware, 25 per cent is around 6. If he’s 25 per cent as successful, he’ll be quite happy.”
