Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho has attacked rivals Arsene Wenger and Jurgen Klopp at a press conference following their criticism of United’s £100m+ chase of Paul Pogba.
Addressing managerial rivals Klopp and Wenger’s criticism of his side’s hunt for the former United man, Mourinho who has again refused to be drawn on the club’s move for the midfielder said: “I already heard two of my colleagues from other Premier League clubs and I have to confess I don’t like it. It’s not ethical.
“When others do that nobody says anything I don’t speak about the others, they can do what they want. We made decisions. We brought four players, not 10, who are Man United level and can really improve the squad.”
“We have 22 and we are going to have 23 (players). I don’t like to speak about other clubs or players from other clubs. Other managers like to do that, they like to speak about my club and my players. I am very pragmatic on this.
“All that matters is what happens in my house and not in my neighbours’ house. Paul Pogba is a Juventus player until he isn’t, officially, so we stay like this. The market closes on Aug 31 but I think my club is trying to do everything to close our market before the 14th.
Pogba is the only target primarily linked with United at the moment, and Mourinho went on to confirm that he was looking to secure a deal for a “very good midfield player” by the start of the new Premier League season.
