Jose Mourinho has told Paul Pogba to clarify his comments in the wake of Manchester United’s defeat by Brighton last weekend.

The Red Devils slumped to a 3-2 loss to Brighton and Hove Albion on the South Coast last Sunday as Manchester United were criticised for their poor performance against Chris Hughton’s men.

Pogba admitted after the game that his “attitude” was not right as the Red Devils slipped to a disappointing defeat in their second Premier League game.

The Red Devils will now aim to get back to winning ways when they host Tottenham Hotspur in the top flight at Old Trafford on Monday night.

Mourinho was quizzed about Pogba’s comments in the wake of Brighton’s win over the Red Devils, but the Portuguese coach insisted that it is up to the midfielder to explain his remarks.

Speaking at a news conference on Friday, Mourinho said: “Paul told, has to answer by his words, if you want any explanation about Paul’s words you must get him and ask him.”

Pogba has been widely criticised for failing to produce consistent performances for the Red Devils under Mourinho.

The midfielder was in fine form for France at this summer’s World Cup, however, as he helped the national team win the trophy in Russia.
