The latest row with Mourinho was coming just a week before that the £89m man turned the Manchester derby on its head after scoring twice in two minutes against Manchester City at the Etihad.

United came back to win that game 3-2 after initially going 2-0 down and Pogba played a monumental part in that.

But he was slammed for his lack of consistency, and was hauled off again against Bournemouth last night with 10 minutes to go.

The 25-year-old put in a much more assured performance, helping his side with an assist.

But Pogba and Mourinho could only manage a glance at one another as the France international trudged off the pitch.

And to perhaps to add salt to injury between the two, Pogba went and shook the hands of two coaches.

The midfielder then headed straight down the tunnel, before making a late appearance on the bench.
