Pogba told Sky Sports: ‘What I have now with Ole is different, he wouldn’t go against the players. He wouldn’t go against the players.

‘Maybe Ole wouldn’t pick them, but it’s not like he puts them on the side like they don’t exist anymore. That’s the difference between Mourinho and Ole.

‘Once I had a great relationship with Mourinho, everybody saw that, and the next day you don’t know what happened.

‘That’s the strange thing I had with Mourinho and I cannot explain to you because even I don’t know. So, yeah.’

The comments were put to Mourinho after Spurs’s 2-2 draw with Everton and he gave a blunt reply.

‘I would like to say that I couldn’t care less with what he says. I am not interested at all,’ said Mourinho.

Harry Kane scored twice to secure a point for Spurs, with Gylfi Sigurdsson scoring twice for the hosts and Spurs defender Eric Dier felt the draw was a fair result.

‘I think in the first half we started well and got our goal then conceded a poor goal. I think both goals were disappointing to concede. We need to be doing better in those areas,’ Dier told Sky Sports.

‘I can do better with myself on the second. 2-2 was fair. They had a few good chances at the end. We did well on some of them. They squandered a few.

‘We gave possession away too much in our half. We need to keep the ball better. I think when we did get out, we got out quite easily through their press. We were at times just a bit too hesitant in possession.’
