I have no problem with Pogba - Jose Mourinho

  • Jose Mourinho Tells Paul Pogba He Won't Captain United Again

After United's win over Leicester, Pogba claimed he would be fined if he commented on his situation at the club, while he also conceded his attitude was not right in the 3-2 defeat to Brighton and Hove Albion.

Jose Mourinho might have denied there was any falling out between himself and Paul Pogba but the images from the Manchester United training ground suggest that might have been a lie.

The 25-year-old shook hands with coach Michael Carrick and another United employee before looking taken aback by something Mourinho said.

The Portuguese declined to give a reason for his decision to take the United vice-captaincy away from the World Cup victor.

"I made the decision of Paul not to be the second captain anymore", Mourinho told Sky Sports.

One source has said, however, Mourinho is "picking fights with his players and then asking them to play for him", with another claiming the atmosphere between Mourinho and his squad has been hard since the players returned to preseason training in July. I think Jose has problems come the end of the season.

While he may have starred for France at the World Cup, Pogba has never quite hit those heights for United, where his displays have been marred by inconsistency.

PAOK vs Chelsea: Sarri reveals Hazard, others may not play
Chelsea have enjoyed a flawless start to life under Maurizio Sarri , winning their opening five league matches, and are now atop of the table.

Pogba was critical of United's tactics during their 1-1 draw with Wolves on Saturday, saying the Red Devils should "attack, attack, attack" in games at Old Trafford.

The pair's strained relationship is in stark contrast to the one between the Portuguese and Frank Lampard during their successful time together at Chelsea.

United had taken the lead against Derby in the third minute with a well-placed shot from Juan Mata after Anthony Martial had burst down the left flank.

Asked just before kick-off about Pogba's absence from the squad, Mourinho insisted the former Juventus star had been "rested".

"When you play, you do the best that you can, and when you speak, you have to be careful what you say".

"[The game against Wolves was] an important lesson; a lesson that I repeat week after week after week, a lesson that some boys are not learning", he said. Or other players? But in terms of this, I don't know if Pogba is worth the hassle for what he gives on the pitch.
