    Nice to know you are looking forward to there potentially being negativity. It’s not like he has not protected the players before has he?

    Mourinho on Pogba
    The manager said:

    “I think you are nice with your words because when you say a lot of speculation you should say a lot of lies because I accept and can speak on Paul’s behalf without any kind of problem.

    Paul accepts he has not been playing well but that’s all and if you want to speak about it that’s one thing and speculation your words makes a little bit of sense but the majority of things you can read and listen, don’t be polite, be objective and say lies.”

    Mourinho on responding to defeats
    Not in the FA Cup, in the FA Cup last match we went really serious, difficult stadium, opponent living a dream to play against Manchester United and trying to be a giant killer.

    “We did it very very serious so obviously Huddersfield is a much better team than Yoevil, obviously they have different ambitions, Yeovil wanted to be a giant killer, Huddersfield wants to progress and try to make something beautiful in the cup.

    “So we have to be ready and we played Huddersfield very recently, a couple of weeks ago, we know who they are how they try to play, we lost this season in their stadium so we can’t be caught by surprise.”

    He does. He said Paul understands he played poorly in the last few games, and the rest is all lies

    The reporter asked about ‘speculation’ and Mourinho responds you shouldn’t call it speculation, you should call it ‘lies’. That’s what I got from it.

    Not sure on the second paragraph, but the first is

    "When you (the journalists) say, "there is a lot of speculation re Pogba...", what you are really saying is "there are a lot of lies about Pogba...""

    Mourinho on Pogba's position
    “The position is quite ridiculous to speak about it because I think we have I don’t want to be - what’s the opposition of nice - I don’t want to be nasty with other countries punditry industry but we have here a number here 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 which position you think Pogba played in against Newcastle.

    “Any one of you want to tell me.

    “Okay midfield, but we played with one number six and numbers eights, 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 the Pogba preferred system? 433? “Do you know Pogba’s favourite position in 433?

    “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 are paid millions, don’t let people read things that are not true, you are paid to read the game and explain the game, don’t say bull****.”

    More on Pogba's form

    Mourinho adds:

    “He had a big injury in the season, big injury, he had a big injury, he almost went to surgery like Dembele in Barcelona with a similar injury, the decision was not to do it and go to a conservative treatment, everyone really happy, he was playing phenomenal after that and before that, he had a red card against Arsenal probably in his best match and the team’s best moment, he was out for a long long time and in this moment he is not playing well, period, and the team needs him at a good level, when he is not a good level the team is not as good.

    “It happens with every team when the most crucial players are not performing. You don’t need to come with we want to sell him, you don’t need that, some people go in that direction, some of them I know for many many years and I know their surname is Liar, and that’s not nice. He plays tomorrow.”

    I agree with him about this. All this 433/4231 nonsense is annoying. As I said in the other thread, I suspect if we look at the heat maps from the Everton game, we'll find that Pogba has been playing on the left side of the midfield with Lingard on the right.

    Just as I thought, Jose sees Lingard as a midfielder, hence him not understanding the criticism.
