It’s the biggest story in world football right now. The precarious relationship between Jose Mourinho and Paul Pogba looks to be at boiling point after worrying footage from Carrington Training Ground emerged earlier today.
Sky Sports described the incident as ‘frosty’ and you can’t blame them.
Pogba’s glances at his manager are far from welcoming, while Jose Mourinho looks equally as frustrated by his player’s actions, but what was said between the pair?
If you listen carefully, people think they can hear Mourinho say “Paul, get out.” between 0:25 and 0:29 seconds.
On top of that, some believe that the Manchester United manager can be heard saying “Take Paul home.” to his colleague at the one minute mark. What do you think?
Take a listen at the footage below:
Jose Mourinho actually gave his take on the situation with Pogba and the captaincy at Manchester United after his side were dumped out of the Carabao Cup on penalties to Derby County.
After Pogba’s comments about United needing to attack more following on from the disappointing draw with Wolves, multiple reports emerged saying that the World Cup winner and Mourinho had fell out – and that he would never captain the side again.
Pogba was not involved in the defeat to Derby, with he and a number of other first-team stars rested and watching the game in the stands.
But when Mourinho was asked the all-important question about his relationship with Pogba post-match, he gave a rather odd response.
“The only truth is that I made the decision of Paul not to be the second captain anymore,” he toldSky Sports.
“But no fall-out. No problems at all. The same person that decides Paul is not second captain anymore was exactly the same person that decides that Paul was the second captain, myself.
“I am the manager, I can make these decisions, no fall out at all, no problems at all. Just one decision that I don’t have to explain.”
