Paul Pogba and Jose Mourinho never got going in recent months. The Manchester United midfielder has struggled for his consistency, and his awful performances at times have not justified his 89 million Euros price tag. On the other hand, Jose Mourinho never really improved him in these two and a half years.
Earlier this season, both of them were spotted in verbal arguments at the Carrington Complex. The Portuguese International publicly came out and said that he is a “virus” to his teammates and destroys the mentality inside the camp.
it is understood that Paul Pogba was spotted dancing inside the training complex aftermath the sacking of the Portuguese International. He also lead the celebrations in the Carrington complex.
“No-one wants to see anyone lose their job, but it was a completely different mood as players were happy again, smiling and could get on with training. “The mood from one day to the next was like night and day.” a source told The Mirror.
Additionally, he was spotted mocking Mourinho during the training session, before being reprimanded by Michael Carrick, who will be part of the United’s coach team under the new interim boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.
Mirror claims that Pogba shouted ‘He f***** with the wrong baller’ at Carrington Complex yesterday. But, it was only a matter of time when the English International headed towards the midfielder to say that he will not tolerate these kinds of behavior and added that no player or manager is bigger than the club.”
Aftermath the sacking of Mourinho, Paul Pogba posted a picture on Instagram. However, it is believed that it was a scheduled post connecting to the marketing of the brand Adidas.
Confirmed by contact within @adidassoccer: “#Pogba‘s social media posts were a scheduled event, part of a marketing campaign. Immediately taken down once it became apparent that it could be misconstrued as disrespectful to Manchester United and José Mourinho”

In response to the tweet, Manchester United legend Gary Neville tweeted “You do one as well” in his forum. Besides, he defamed the French International in Sky Sports
“He’s a huge talent, I actually liked him when he was at the club as a kid,” Neville told Sky Sports.
“It’s not a personal thing, but Paul Pogba there’s no doubt has fallen out with the manager – doesn’t believe in him, doesn’t like him, doesn’t think he’s a good coach probably. And vice versa Jose Mourinho doesn’t think Paul Pogba is as talented a player as he thinks he is.”
“So there’s been a complete breakdown probably in the last 12 months and there’s no doubt there’s a high level of dislike there. However, Jose Mourinho lost his job this morning, and Paul Pogba and his people put that Instagram post out.”
“I don’t fall for this coincidence, scheduled Tweet nonsense, it’s garbage, absolute garbage. I think he probably would have liked to have gone public earlier, on Jose Mourinho, I think he would have liked to have gone public a lot earlier on how the club is at this moment in time.”
“But on Jose Mourinho’s side I bet when Paul Pogba won the World Cup in the summer, I bet he thought he was coming back to an impossible situation, where basically he thought, ‘This player’s going to be out of control now’. Manchester United are a better team with Paul Pogba in it, but I do believe that, this morning, to dance on the grave of the manager who’s just been sacked is out of order.”
