Mourinho To Pogba: "No One Is Bigger Than Man Utd''
It is no longer news that all is not well between Manchester United manager, Jose Mourinho and midfielder Paul Pogba.
Mourinho has warned Paul Pogba that no player is bigger than Manchester United, but praised the Frenchman’s attitude in training during another week in which tensions escalated between the Portuguese coach and his star midfielder.
Mourinho stripped Pogba of his role as vice-captain on Tuesday and a frosty exchange between the pair was caught on camera at training the next day after United crashed out the League Cup on penalties to Championship side Derby.
Pogba was rested in midweek, but Mourinho was reportedly unhappy about an Instagram video in which Pogba appeared laughing while watching Tuesday’s match at Old Trafford.
However, the club later clarified that it had been uploaded during the match, when the home side had been leading.
For his part, Pogba criticised Mourinho’s tactics for being too negative in a 1-1 draw at home to Wolves on Saturday.
But Mourinho insisted Pogba will return to the starting line-up for this weekend’s Premier League trip to West Ham.
“He’s a player like the others. No player is bigger than the club and, if I’m happy with his work, he plays, if I’m not happy, he doesn’t play."
