The Jose Mourinho/Paul Pogba saga rumbles with the French midfielder informing the media that he’s not allowed to talk about his problems with the manager.
The two have been at odds for most of this season with Mourinho stripping Pogba of the Vice Captaincy and then telling the media that he was never Vice Captain in the first place.
He had earlier asked reporters if they wanted him ‘dead’ when he was asked about his problems with the coach after United’s defeat to West Ham over the weekend.
When met with at the mixed zone after the draw against Valencia, Pogba told reporters; “I’ve been told I’m not allowed.”
The deteriorating relationship between the two has overshadowed United’s disappointing campaign and reports indicate that Mourinho could be sacked soon. If that is the case, it’d be the first time Mourinho would have failed to win the league with the club he’s been contracted to.
Meanwhile, Antonio Valencia has apologized for liking a post on Instagram that called for the sacking of the United Manager.
“Yesterday, I liked a post on Instagram without reading the text that accompanied the picture. These are not my views and I apologise for this. I am fully supportive of the manager and my teammates. We are all giving our everything to improve the results.” he said on Twitter regarding the post.
He also claimed that Manchester United need to keep fighting and that he has no problems with anyone: “No, I have never had any problem with anyone, thank God,” Valencia said. “The decision [about the captaincy] is for the coach to make, now we need to see the positives. We played an important game and got a point, now we have a game against Newcastle and we need to fight.
“What I can say from the inside is that the lads are calm, working every day with a good attitude. We haven’t got good results and that’s why rumours arise.”
