Pogba To Outstay Mourinho At United

Pogba To Outstay Mourinho At United

WATCH: Jose Mourinho and Paul Pogba had an awkward exchange as the midfielder returned to training after being stripped of the Manchester United vice-captaincy. "That's Old Trafford", Pogba said to reporters.

According to The Times, Mourinho informed Pogba in front of his team-mates on Tuesday, claiming the 25-year-old "doesn't represent what a captain is and Manchester United is bigger than anyone".

"I'm shell-shocked. What a performance", Lampard said to Sky Sports.

"Mourinho's got his own problems at the end of the this season, in terms of if he's the right manager for Manchester United".

Manchester United have slapped a £200 million price tag on the 2018 World Cup victor, although it remains to be seen if Barcelona would be willing to part with a club record transfer fee.

Manchester United, now seventh on the Premier League table, also went on to play an 1-1 draw against Wolves at home on Saturday.

"He's not as a good as he thinks he is, he's not". You will find Jose Mourinho's players being managers all over the place because he has been so successful in his career.

Following the match, Mourinho told the media, "When I saw going after the sixth and seventh, I knew we would be in trouble with Jones and Eric".

Pogba has widely been criticised for failing to produce consistent performances under Mourinho at Old Trafford, but he was in fine form as he helped France to win the World Cup in Russian Federation this summer.

In 2016, the arrival of Mourinho at the helm was instantly buoyed by the £89million return of prodigal son Pogba from Juventus, in what supposed to herald a resurgence of success at the club after dire years following Sir Alex Ferguson's retirement.

"The Frenchman must have some powerful allies at Old Trafford for him to come out and say stuff like that".

"But talk of Barcelona I can't think of a more ill-fitting player to Barcelona".

An early Cup exit to Championship Derby, managed by one of Mourinho's former pupils at Chelsea Frank Lampard, intensifies the pressure on the Portuguese. How can that happen if he's that man for Manchester United, fighting with the club, fighting with the manager.

Mourinho was far from pleased with his club-record signing and spoke to his players in the dressing room after the disappointing draw with Wolves.
