Mourinho made the midfielder captain for United’s first match of the season against Leicester last Friday, but former Manchester United star Paul Ince has slammed the France ace and thinks Mourinho should give him the boot.

"But, since he's come back, he's been a nightmare. As a player, irrespective of whether you're happy or unhappy, there are ways to conduct yourself.

"He captained United in their opening game of the season against Leicester, played brilliantly, and then came out with those quotes afterwards.

"I really can't understand why he'd do that other than to get attention and set tongues wagging." earlier reported that Manchester United pair Jose Mourinho and Paul Pogba’s relationship have hit a new low after an extraordinary bust-up.

According to SunSport, 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.
