- Jose Mourinho and Paul Pogba's quarrel might not end sooner than expected
- The pair exchanged words following Manchester United's victory against Leicester
- Mourinho's claims Pogba's agent Mino Raiola is behind their misunderstanding
Manchester United pair Jose Mourinho and Paul Pogba’s relationship have hit a new low after an extraordinary bust-up, The Sun exclusively reports.
The Portuguese manager warned the Frenchman not to talk about his grievances through the media and said if he wants to quit the club “again” he should ask for a transfer.
The 25-year-old hit back by telling Mourinho if he plans to speak to him formally again he should go through his agent Mino Raiola.
The 55-year-old manager delivered his no-nonsense message after ordering the ex-Juventus star for showdown talks in the wake of the Frenchman’s comments following United’s 2-1 win over Leicester at Old Trafford.
An unhappy Pogba had told newspaper reporters: “There are things I can say and there are things that I cannot say, otherwise I will get fine.”
On the other hand, Mourinho told Pogba he did not appreciate those comments and added, “If you wish to leave Manchester, again, all you have to do is ask for a transfer”.
The ‘again’ was a dig at Pogba who left the club in 2012 to earn more money at Juventus before his £89million return two years ago.
Mourinho was left sad by Pogba’s post-match comments despite making him captain and praised him afterwards.
But the bad blood had been lingering since last season when the pair fell out leading to Mourinho dropping and subbing the player in crucial matches.
Meanwhile, NAIJ.com had earlier reported that France midfielder Paul Pogba has cast fresh doubts over his Manchester United future by saying he would get fined if he really opened up about his happiness.
Pogba's relationship with Jose Mourinho appears to be the reason of not getting to terms with life at Old Trafford after the World Cup.
