After being one of the star men in United's 2-1 truimph over Leicester, with Pogba scoring the opener form the penalty spot, he was more expressive after the match.
"I don't think there's any question that a player would say that under Fergie because you'd have been finished".
Manchester United are ready to overhaul their approach to recruitment by hiring a Director of Football in reaction to their disappointing transfer window, according to reports.
Pogba and Mourinho clashed throughout last season with the Frenchman being dropped on occasions.
Yet Pogba has now stirred the rumour mill over his future once again, with comments to the media that suggest his discontent under Mourinho's leadership will not evaporate any time soon.

Romanian Halep will now meet the victor of the late semi-final between defending champion Elina Svitolina of Ukraine and U.S. Open victor Sloane Stephens for the title on Sunday. "I think I played smart tennis today".
"There are things I can say and there are things that I cannot say, otherwise I will get fined", he told reporters when asked if he felt comfortable at the club.
"And wearing this armband, it's even more because of the past, because of the players that played here, the people that have been wearing this".
In comments widely regarded as reflecting continuing problems with his relationship with the United boss, he wrote: "I'll always give my best for the fans and my team mates, no matter what's going on".
"Carrick talked to me, Kieran came to me and they spoke about United, what a big club it is, how people look up to me, about coming from the academy, stuff like that".
Pogba answered the call to take his place in United's midfield just 26 days after lifting the World Cup with France, a response which earned his manager's praise as well as the captain's armband.
"When you have everybody with you, everybody next to you, you know they want to fight for you, obviously it's going to be easier", he said.
