Jose Mourinho trolls UK press after the Man City, Paul Pogba ’embargo’ leak

Man City & Paul Pogba

As everyone surely now knows, Pep Guardiola claimed that Man City were offered Paul Pogba in January.

Guardiola announced that Mino Raiola, Pogba’s agent, offered the French midfielder to Man City in the last transfer window.

Not only that, but Guardiola claimed Henrikh Mkhitaryan was also offered to City before the Armenian joined Arsenal. He said:

Finally, the people discover my secrets – a bad guy. I’m a coward. I don’t understand why I am a so bad guy. I never speak with him so his opinion [about me], I don’t know. But being a guy who two months ago offered me Mkhitaryan and Pogba to play with us. Why?

Why he offer? He was interested in Mhikitaryan and Pogba to play with us? So he has to protect his players and has to know he cannot bring the players to a guy like me, like a dog. And comparing a dog is bad. It’s not good. He has to respect the dogs.

Gianluca Di Marzio & the broken ’embargo’

One of the byproducts of the Pogba-Man City story was the manner in which the report broke.

Italian transfer guru Gianluca Di Marzio was the first to report on the story. Di Marzio was accused by members of the British press of having committed a sin in his report.

It was claimed the Pogba story was embargoed, but Di Marzio broke ranks.
