Mourinho hits out at Manchester United Superstar after Burnley win

Manchester United must have won the game 3-0 had their World Cup victor with France, Paul Pogba converted it from a penalty United earned.

"The people will now see a different side of us", he added.

"I am [delighted] and I think some of you must be disappointed - it would be much better if we lose, but I think the performance was very good and very good from the first ball we touched", he said.
