Jose Mourinho has expressed his concern at the levels of “envy” he believes are being shown against Paul Pogba.
Pogba has struggled in recent weeks for Manchester United, receiving as many yellow cards in his last 15 appearances as he has scored or assisted a goal (2).
The Frenchman has played more minutes than any other United player this season, and was bypassed as Mourinho’s side exited the FA Cup against Chelsea.
Pogba was a peripheral figure throughout at Stamford Bridge, but Mourinho crowned him the game’s best player “by far”.
The Portuguese continued his charm defensive with regards to the world’s most expensive player on Wednesday.
“I feel that the world is losing values and we all know that and envy is coming into certain levels that I am scared with,” Mourinho said.
“It is not Paul’s fault that he gets ten times the money that some very good players get. It is not Paul’s fault that some fans are in trouble and need every penny to survive. He needs respect, his family deserves respect.
“He comes from a working family with three boys so I am sure the Mum and Dad worked hard for many years.
“A kid that comes to England as a teen to fight for his career here and was not afraid to work for a better life.
“I am very happy with Paul. The club is very happy with Paul and I think the good thing is because of his personality he does not listen to what people say.”
