Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho lambasted French midfielder Paul Pogba at the club’s training session on Wednesday, September 26, following one of his posts on the social media.
According to a UK Daily Star report, the Portuguese boss was furious because he could not understand why Pogba, decided to celebrate the Red Devils defeat by Derby with footage on his Instagram handle.
“The images of Mourinho and Pogba, when Pogba arrived at the training ground, were of Mourinho attacking him about his decision to post on Instagram after the match a video of him laughing.
“When he arrived Mourinho told him to respect the ones that are sad instead of posting a video of him laughing,” a close pal of Mourinho was quoted as saying by Daily Star.
The report further noted that despite being stripped of the club’s vice-captaincy, Pogba is not likely to leave Old Trafford, until the end of the current campaign.
And the Old Trafford eggheads will place a massive price-tag of about £200m as well as making sure the midfielder tender a formal transfer request.
Reacting on the latest development, former Liverpool star and Sky Sports pundit, Jamie Carragher insists the French World Cup star Pogba does not possess the required qualities to be a Barcelona player.
“I do think there is talent there, but talk of Barcelona? I can't think of a more ill-fitting player for Barcelona," he noted.
“Barcelona are all about discipline, staying in position, playing for the team. That is totally against everything Pogba plays for.
“Pogba plays for himself, does his own thing,” Carragher added.
