Comparing Mourinho with current boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, Pogba also accused the Tottenham manager of using diversion tactics after his side went down 3-1 to United last Sunday.
Pogba and Mourinho endured a rocky relationship towards the end of the Portuguese’s time at Old Trafford.
The French midfielder was stripped of the United vice-captaincy in September 2018 in front of his team-mates and the pair had a training ground bust-up shortly afterwards that was picked up by TV cameras.
Speaking to Sky Sports, Pogba was scathing in his view of Mourinho, saying: ‘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.’
