Man United Manager Mourinho Attacks 'Bull****' Pundits Over Pogba

Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho has slammed pundits over questioning the midfield role of Paul Pogba.
Mourinho says pundits in English football have no idea about where Pogba is played in his system and why.
At Friday's presser, he blasted: "The position is quite ridiculous to speak about because I think we have. I don't want to be - what's the opposition of nice? (press officer: nasty).

"I don't want to be nasty with other country's pundit industry, because there are very good pundits in other countries, but I think we have here at least in number the biggest pundit industry because there are hundreds of them with great background and knowledge in football and I would like somebody to tell me in which position you think Pogba played in against Newcastle. I would like people to tell me in which position you think Pogba played against Newcastle.

"Any one of you want to tell me?"
 When one reporter suggested, "Can you tell us?", Mourinho continued...
"No? Can you tell me?!


"Okay midfield, but we played with one number six and two number eights, or two eights and one 10, or two six and one 10? We play with one six and two eights. We play with Matic as a six, Lingard on the right side of Matic and Pogba on the left side.

"You know which is Pogba's preferred system? 4-3-3.

"Do you know Pogba's favourite position in 4-3-3? Eight on the left.

"So it's easy and honest and objective to say Paul didn't play well against Newcastle but some of the guys, they are paid millions, don't let people read things that are not true.

"You are paid to read the game and explain the people game, don't say b******t."
