The tense relationship between Jose Mourinho and Paul Pogba showed no sign of melting after footage emerged on Wednesday appearing to show a tense exchange between the pair at a Manchester United training.
The video, filmed by Sky Sports, showed Pogba and Mourinho caught up in what appeared to be a sore conversation at the club’s Carrington’s training base.
It came just hours after Mourinho confirmed Pogba will no longer be considered for Manchester United captaincy duties in spite of wearing the armband three times this season in the absence of Antonio Valencia, the club’s designated captain.
Mourinho has left more than a few of Man United’s senior players “angry and frustrated” with his man-management this season, with sources telling ESPN FC his decision to strip the Frenchman of the vice-captaincy is only the latest episode that has baffled many within the dressing room.
United, who are eight points off Premier League leaders Liverpool, face West Ham on Saturday afternoon at the London Stadium.
JUST IN! ?
