Sky Sports News have said, during Jose Mourinho and Paul Pogba’s exchange, Mourinho asked the#mufcpress officer: ‘When did Paul post that Instagram?’#mufc – Samuel Luckhurst (@samuelluckhurst)September 26, 2018
The Instagram post in question has since been deleted by Pogba but it showed him messing around with teammates Luke Shaw and Andreas Pereira in the stands at Old Trafford
It was posted after United crashed out of the Carabao Cup on penalties to Derby County, but appeared to have been filmed during the game. Clearly, Mourinho wanted to know whether it was posted when United were losing.
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.
Mourinho gave his take on the situation with Pogba and the captaincy at United in a post-match interview last night and 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.”
Pogba has yet to give his side of the story but of course he posted something rather cryptic on his Instagram, after today’s training session.
