Paul Scholes Slams Paul Pogba Amid Rumours Of Manchester United Rift

Jose Mourinho defends relationship with Paul Pogba... and insists only player he has fined is Anthony Martial

Jose Mourinho shuts down reports of a rift with Manchester United superstar Paul Pogba

But Mourinho is adamant that that has nothing to do with him as he defended his relationship with Pogba, revealing that he's only fined one player during his time at Old Trafford.

Premier League side Manchester United have denied reports claiming club boss Jose Mourinho and Paul Pogba had a big bust-up as "absolute nonsense", insisting the pair have a good relationship.

Pogba was handed the responsibility in Manchester United's 2-1 win over Leicester City in their league opener last Friday.

Jose Mourinho has broken his silence on his relationship with French World Cup victor Paul Pogba and insists there has been no disagreement with Manchester United's record signing.

When pressed on the reasons for Pogba making his comments about possibly being fined, Mourinho added: "You have to ask him, you have to ask him. 'They've been really good for me, I think I've totally changed as a player and a human being after these two years".

When prompted to clarify what the former Juventus midfielder insinuated by his controversial comments, Mourinho stated the press should ask him the questions.

"I learned a lot of things being on my own, I lived on my own there, and it's different than living over here".

He said: "They are a team - with the quality they have in the squad - that you very much expect to be up there again". His contribution to the team's attacking play is second to none as the prolific German has scored three goals and three assists in his last seven PL appearances at the Amex Stadium. I want him to play for the team, which he's doing, and, I repeat, I couldn't be happier than what I am.

"I have to say in his defence, write what you want about him, about me, but please don't say lies".

The tension between the two has been rising for some time amid the forward's uncertain future at Old Trafford. "We never had a harsh exchange of words, everything is respected, I have no problems at all".

"It is not easy to be fined here, so you have to ask him".

"I just think he's a very high-profile manager".

"We should be talking about where Manchester United are going to go this year, not about Pogba, Mourinho, Pogba, Mourinho".

"He has the right to a bad match".
