Mourinho On Pep's Controversial Pogba Claims

Ahead of the Manchester derby, Pep Guardiola had claimed that Paul Pogba's agent had offered Manchester United's record signing to Manchester City in January. United boss Jose Mourinho has now given his view on his longstanding rival's controversial claim.

Mourinho Reveals What He Told Pep

The Spanish tactician and the midfielder's representative, Mino Raiola, have been at each other's throats again in the media, with the Citizens boss seemingly trying to disturb the French international's focus ahead of the derby when he claimed that the agent offered Henrikh Mkhitaryan and Pogba to him in January.

After the 3-2 derby victory on Saturday, Mourinho told members of the media that he did not pay any attention to the war of words, and felt that the former Juventus star was not affected by the extra attention either.  

"I often make mistakes, I didn't even think about it," Mourinho said, as quoted by Sky Sports

"Guardiola and Mino, we know the relationship is not the best. It is normal that sometimes they come with a little touch on each other but I was not worried about it, I was not upset with it and I didn't speak with Paul about it.

"I didn't call Mino to ask him anything at all, I was just focused on the game and I think Paul was the same because the way he played was only possible if he was focused on the game."

The former Chelsea manager, however, does believe one of Guardiola or Raiola is lying about the matter, but insisted he is not interested in their ongoing feud.

"Guardiola says that the agent denies, so one of them is saying the truth and one of them is not telling the truth," Mourinho added.

"Honestly, I am not interested in knowing which one is the liar and which one is the honest guy. I am not interested in that."

Mourinho saw his side come back from a 2-0 deficit at the Etihad to win 3-2 on Saturday, and will be hoping his side can continue their good run of form in their next match, against West Bromwich Albion on Sunday.
