The France international, signed for a world record £89 million from Juventus in the summer, has endured a mixed first season back at Old Trafford under Mourinho’s tutelage.
Pogba was singled out for praise by Mourinho during Monday’s FA Cup defeat at the hands of Chelsea, despite his opposite number N’Golo Kante bossing midfield and deservedly walking away with the man-of-the match award.
The likes of Roy Keane and Rio Ferdinand have been unimpressed by Pogba’s attitude of late but Mourinho believes the former Manchester United stars’ controversial views are simply born out of a desire to make money.
He said: ‘I am very happy with Paul. The club is very happy with Paul and I think the good thing is because of his personality he does not listen to what people say.
‘I feel the world is losing balance. Envy coming to certain levels I am scared for the next generation.
‘He came to Manchester as a teenager and fought for his career here. He reached the top of the world, nobody gave him anything.
