'I don't think it's fair' - Mourinho has spoken about Paul Pogba's recent form

Jose Mourinho has defended under-fire superstar Paul Pogba ahead of his Manchester United return.

In recent weeks, the France international has come under intense scrutiny for his performances in the Premier League .

Last season, Pogba completed a record-breaking return to United courtesy of an £89 million transfer – with the price tag seemingly weighing heavy upon the shoulders of the midfielder.

However, Mourinho has insisted the 24-year-old has nothing to answer for.

"I don't think it's fair to speak about the responsibilities of a player," Mourinho said.

"I don't even like the fact that the player that cost X millions doesn't have the same responsibility as the player that cost three times X.

"I think the responsibility is for everyone, so I don't like that kind of approach. I understand for you (the media), but not for me.

"When I decide a team to play, I don't look to the age, I don't look to the salary, I don't look to the transfer fee, because I think that's not also fair.”

Last week, rumours began to circulate suggesting Real Madrid could make a move to bring Pogba to the Bernabeu in the summer.

However, the midfielder is expected to return to action for United in Wednesday’s Champions League clash against Sevilla .
