"Everton had a reaction for five, eight minutes, but we were always in control".

United have been linked with a host of stars this month as Mourinho looks to close the gap on runaway leaders Manchester City.

Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho has found himself in hot water with sections of the club's hierarchy after complaining about the club's spending. And he reserved his fiercest condemnation for Scholes. For transparency, I said this time past year that Mauricio Pochettino would leave Tottenham for a Spanish giant.

Speaking on RTÉ 2fm's Game On, Dunphy said: "There's an bad lot of hype merchants in the media and in the game saying that Pogba is an outstanding, but I agree with everything that Scholes has said". "I don't think he comments, I think he criticises, which is a different thing", he said in a post-match press conference, according to Sky Sports. "Honestly, I know that in this moment we are in trouble, maybe in 2-3 weeks we recover some players".

"Obviously Paul is a confident lad, so over time he's going to be a great player for this club and have a big season this season".

"Our pride, our effort, everything was top class and on top of it we played very well", he said.

To make matters worse, many in the Indian diaspora have lost hard-earned money because of arbitrary decisions like demonetisation. Prasad also slammed Congress over its dual stand on the triple talaq bill in the Parliament and accused it of spreading hatred.

"Pogba is not to blame for winning much more money than Scholes, it's not his fault, it's simply because of how football works now".

Marcus Rashford (20), Anthony Martial (22), Paul Pogba (24) and Jesse Lingard (25) all remain on the right side of the 20s and have already combined for over 400 senior appearances for Manchester United.

"I also think United have struggled with the change of managers over the last few years as you've got a mix of players brought in by David Moyes, Louis van Gaal and Jose Mourinho". Fifty per cent of that is 12.5 silverware, 25 per cent is around six. "There are 25 titles, so 25 percent would be about 6 titles, which would be very good", Mourinho concluded. "The prestige of this club is based on people like him".

United now sit at the second place in the Premier League table, 12 points behind their rivals Manchester City - having played one extra game than City and third-placed Chelsea.

This was prompted by Pogba's performance in United's 2-0 demolition of Everton at Goodison Park where he was named Man of the Match.
