Man Utd news: Paul Pogba responds to Jose Mourinho training ground video with cryptic post

PAUL POGBA has posted a cryptic image on Instagram amid fresh controversy over his relationship with Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho.

On Tuesday, Pogba was stripped of his role as deputy Manchester United captain and left out of the squad which lost on penalties to Derby in the Carabao Cup.

And in footage from Sky Sports this morning, Pogba and Mourinho appeared to have a disagreement at the Carrington training ground complex.

Pogba greeted coach Michael Carrick with a handshake, walked past Mourinho and then shook the hand of another one of United’s technical staff.

Mourinho is then heard saying “get out” to Pogba to his surprise.

The pair continued to exchange words but the midfielder eventually took part in training and was all smiles with his team-mates.

And after leaving the training ground, Pogba has taken to Instagram to post an image on his ‘Stories’.

Pogba uses a finger up emoji to point towards an earring of the face with a stuck out tongue and winking eye emoji.

The same emoji is the enlarged in the picture.

The furore began when on Saturday when Pogba was guilty of a mistake which cost United as they conceded a goal to Wolves.

Mourinho blasted his players post-match but Pogba hit back saying United needed to attack more in home games.

The United boss personally held Pogba responsible for the 1-1 draw at the weekend and slammed the midfielder in the dressing room.

Express Sport understands Mourinho informed the squad on Tuesday that Pogba will never skipper the club again in an attempt to show his authority and remind the players that he is in charge.

Speaking last night, Mourinho insisted there was no falling out between them.

"The only truth is that I made the decision of Paul not to be the second captain anymore," Mourinho told Sky 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.

“I am the manager, I can make these decisions, no fall-out at all, no problems at all, just one decision that I don't have to explain."

However, the pictures from training strong suggest there is a breakdown between player and manager.
