Mourinho to Pogba: You are the anti-captain

28 September 2018

Those were the exact words Jose Mourinho used as he gave Paul Pogba a dressing down in front of his Manchester United teammates earlier this week.

Barcelona have reportedly decided that they have no intention of paying £200m for Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba.

Many are confused by the way Mourinho seemingly picks fights with certain players but then demands them to perform for him, while some of the Red Devils stars apparently feel they have not improved under the former Chelsea boss.

Anthony Martial is the most obvious ally among a coterie of unhappy French-speaking players that also includes Eric Bailly.

Trump withdrew the USA from a nuclear agreement between Iran and world powers and reinstated economic sanctions on Iran . The president arrived significantly behind schedule for his speech, forcing organizers to change the order of speakers.

But Old Trafford's surprisingly poor wi-fi connection has been to blame, with Pogba explaining to Mourinho the photo was actually taken at half-time, when United were leading their visitors 1-0.

It's become abundantly clear that the pair's relationship is broken beyond fix and Jamie Carragher thinks it's Pogba who needs to head for the exit door.

Mourinho is being eclipsed by his rivals, and with Manchester City and Liverpool storming ahead in the Premier League, it won't be much longer before United fans have had enough.

"There's a power play here going on and I think Mourinho is well aware there's cameras there", Carragher told Sky Sports on Wednesday.

If Dominic Solanke isn't involved against his former club, meanwhile, he will wonder if he is ever going to get a game. That always needs time and they were always used to other football teams. "The pressure is already there".

Three days later, Pogba irritated Mourinho once again by playing loud music on the top deck of the team bus en route to Old Trafford before the draw with Wolves.

While footballers playing loud music is nothing new, those who have grown exhausted of Pogba thought it showed a lack of focus and was symptomatic of his brash, over-the-top behaviour that has become part of daily life around the club. The same went for Sir Alex Ferguson.

With the way things are now, Pogba's relationship with Mourinho is irreparable as the manager is set to re-establish control over the rest of the squad before it is too late. "We've see what Pogba is as a player". This all depends on who the board trust more, Mourinho or Pogba.
