Paul Pogba watches Manchester United's defeat at Old Trafford

Jose Mourinho was left frustrated by Man Utd’s lack of transfer activity in the summer

The relationship between Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho and star midfielder Paul Pogba appears to have reached a breaking point.

"The person who made the decision to be second captain was also me".

"No fall-out at all, no problems at all, just one decision that I don't have to explain".

The win at Old Trafford - only his 12th competitive match - saw him claim first honors against his erstwhile mentor and manager from his Chelsea days. That is totally against everything that Pogba plays for.

The United hierarchy are aware of the dispirited mood of numerous club's players, but there is a belief, and a hope, Mourinho can turn the situation around. We don't play again until next season.

The France global captained the side in the Premier League openers against Leicester and Brighton in the absence of Antonio Valencia, just as he did in last week's Champions League win at Young Boys.

It was a downbeat conclusion to a torrid day for United after relations between Mourinho and French World Cup victor Pogba reportedly hit a new low.

Pogba wasn't in the squad for the Derby game, but Mourinho still fielded a very strong side against Lampard's second-tier side.


Following Saturday's 1-1 draw, Pogba said he wanted the team to be able to "attack, attack, attack" at Old Trafford.

Reports suggest that Pogba and Mourinho are barely talking. We all know Mourinho is one who can easily clash with others as he has a strong ego and desire to do thing his way, but you have to wonder how things will play out if the results and uncomfortable confrontations continue.

Mourinho declined to give a specific reason for his latest decision in what has developed into an ongoing spat between him and the 25-year-old.

"It's not helpful. It's a loaded answer", Redknapp said, speaking on Sky Sports.

Pogba captained United on three occasions this season, all when club captain Antonio Valencia was absent.

Pogba watched from the stands as United exited the Carabao Cup in the third round for the first time since 2007.

Fellaini came to United's rescue five minutes into stoppage-time when the Belgian converted Diogo Dalot's cross with a close-range header, however that was only delaying Mourinho's misery.
