Mourinho has signed Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Eric Bailly, Henrikh Mkhitaryan and Pogba this summer

Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho says rival managers spoke out about the cost of Paul Pogba because their clubs are not big enough to do such a deal.

Midfielder Pogba, 23, rejoined United on Tuesday for a world-record £89m.

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger and Liverpool counterpart Jurgen Klopp were outspoken about his valuation.

“Sometimes in football, things happen and the club breaks the record, but this is only possible at clubs like Manchester United,” Mourinho told MUTV.
