Mourinho hails Lingard after wonder goal fires United

Mourinho hails Lingard after wonder goal fires United

The 24-year-old missed United's 2-0 league win at Everton on Monday after sustaining a head injury during last weekend's goalless draw with Southampton, but the Portuguese boss said his top scorer had not suffered a concussion and would make a quick return.

Pogba added that wherever he plays on the pitch, "I'm playing for Manchester United, and that gives me a smile".

Fans voted Paul Pogba as the man of the match after the victory.

"I think they [former United players working as pundits] would love to be here, in the club". But given the way Jose Mourinho ranted his way into the headlines straight after the game by calling out Paul Scholes you would be forgiven for having forgotten of United's win.

Everton tried to respond but Lingard ended their hopes as he doubled United's lead, and lifted them back to second in the Premier League, with a superb individual effort.

In his 18 appearances this year during league play, the 25-year-old has seven goals and four assists.

In response, Mourinho attacked Scholes' punditry saying the former United player has failed in his job as a pundit and only criticizes instead of properly analyzing situations. No one in England should be getting near him, but he is being asked to do a role he is not comfortable in.

"I think Scholes will be in the history a phenomenal player, but not as a pundit. 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.

Giles was angered by Mourinho's blast for Paul Scholes after the United legend's criticism of Paul Pogba. You have to say the manager has to take responsibility for that attitude. He has been stressing on the fact that the club has spent money on important players like Paul Pogba, Romelu Lukaku but nothing like the amount on a collective level like City.

Manchester United midfielder Ander Herrera wants his teammate, winger Jesse Lingard, to play like the refrain in a very familiar LMFAO pop song, and take "shots, shots, shots, shots, shots, shots".

Mourinho said: "If Paul [Scholes] one day decides to be a manager I wish that he can be 25 per-cent as successful as myself, because 25 per-cent of 25 is six trophies".
