Man Utd news: Paul Pogba angrily said THIS after Jose Mourinho snubbed him for Arsenal | Football | Sport
Manchester United midfielder Pogba has been at war with Mourinho since February, with the duo’s relationship worsening in recent times.
The France international was reportedly labelled a ‘virus’ in the aftermath of the club’s abysmal 2-2 draw with Southampton at the weekend.
That lead to Manchester United dropping him for the draw against Arsenal, with the World Cup winner only making it onto the pitch in the closing stages.
And the Daily Mail have now explained how Paul Pogba reacted to the Arsenal snub.
In short, the United star did not appear to take kindly to Mourinho’s latest snub.
The Daily Mail say that, after the match, he was asked about his bit-part role by journalists in attendance.
And Pogba then reportedly shrugged angrily and said: “What do you expect me to say?”
Pogba is facing an uncertain future at United with links to Barcelona and Juventus refusing to go away.
He arrived in 2016 as a player many expected to propel the Red Devils to silverware galore.
His rift with Mourinho, however, has soured his second stint at United.
And Red Devils hero Paul Ince has now weighed in on the Pogba and Mourinho debate, blasting the United midfielder for his below-par performances.
“Pogba’s supposed to be world class, but he looks bang average,” Ince told Paddy Power.
“If he thinks his place is to come on the pitch and do stupid little flicks and tricks which lead to them losing the ball – he’s an idiot.
“You can blame Jose Mourinho for some things, but you can’t blame him for everything.
“Pogba doesn’t help him himself, and he’s right to be dropped.
“It doesn’t matter how big your name is. No one is too big of a name to be dropped at United, or at least they shouldn’t be.”
Pogba could return for United’s Premier League match against Fulham (Saturday, 3pm).
