Pogba Not To Captain Man U Again, Mourinho Confirms

Manchester United's French midfielder Paul Pogba's fractious relationship with Jose Mourinho could worsen after he criticised the latter's tactics

Jamie Carragher has hit out at Paul Pogba after his latest altercation with Jose Mourinho and believes Manchester United must back their manager.

"I repeated what I said in the last match, that their [the opponent's] dressing room was one with belief, because it [the match] was open and they played quite well", Mourinho told Sky Sports.

"No fall out. The person who made the decision to be second-captain was also me".

Frank Lampard's side did not just sit back and defend at Old Trafford, but they played with their usual style and fluency and created plenty of problems.

So, which one of them will leave Manchester United first: Paul Pogba or Jose Mourinho?

In an Instagram video which has since been deleted, Pogba was seen joking around with teammates Luke Shaw and Andreas Pereira during the match at Old Trafford. That is totally against everything that Pogba plays for.

'Now another question is should Mourinho be getting more out of a £90m player?

"I'm a bit shell shocked [but] in a good way", Lampard said.

Over the winter, Pogba's agent, Mino Raiola, tried to orchestrate a move for the Frenchman away from Manchester United, and with everything that has transpired since, you can be sure Raiola will be working the phones again to try and move the World Cup victor to a more palatable destination.

With other players such as Marcus Rashford in the vicinity, Pogba gestured, as if to say "What have I done?" and again mouthed something to Mourinho.

Reports suggest that Pogba and Mourinho are barely talking.

Despite being rested for the third-round tie, the 25-year-old remained a hot topic as it was claimed in the build-up that Mourinho had told the World Cup victor that he would not captain United again in front of the squad.

Pogba has been United's stand-in captain for three games when regular skipper Antonio Valencia has been missing.

Manchester United said its employee benefit expenses for the year rose 12.3% to 295.9 million pounds, primarily due to higher player wages.

Between the visitors' two goals Sergio Romero was sent off for handball.

The visitors made the man advantage count when Jack Mariott headed home five minutes from time, but Marouane Fellaini looked to have saved Mourinho's blushes with a towering header deep into stoppage time.
