The latest on the seeming “Pogba vs Mourinho” saga is an apparent training ground clash between the two figures at Manchester United.
The relationship between Jose Mourinho and Paul Pogba has been on the rocks ever since the Frenchman was benched for the Champions League knock out match against Sevilla. A lot has been said by both the figures at Manchester United, and Mourinho seemingly attempted to revive the relations by making Pogba the captain in the Premier League opener this season.
However, Mourinho confirmed that he has stripped-off Pogba of his vice-captaincy, two days after the Frenchman urged the team to attack at Old Trafford.
A video, which was initially recorded by SKY Sports, was published on the internet, which further approves of the claims that two don’t share a fruitful relationship at Manchester United.
In the video, Paul Pogba shakes hands with Michael Carrick, but the smile vanishes off his face as Jose Mourinho comes up to him and speaks. The two continue to debate, with Pogba making wild gestures.
Here is the video of the incident:

The video has got the internet talking, with many believing that one of Pogba and Mourinho could be on their way out of Old Trafford.
Mourinho creates disciplined robots, something Pogba will never be.

Manchester United have endured a poor start to their season, with the club currently at 7th position in the Premier League. The club received another setback last night when the club lost in their opening round of the Carabao Cup to Frank Lampard’s Derby County.

Jose Mourinho’s side went down to the Championships side on penalties, after a poor display in the second half.
Manchester United will make an away trip to London Stadium where they will face West Ham United in the Premier League this weekend.
