What Jose Mourinho told 'stunned' Paul Pogba when he stripped vice-captaincy

Mourinho tells Pogba ‘You will never be captain again

The United manager didn't explain the reason behind changing the Frenchman's role at the club.

A bubbly Pogba was filmed running out to training but, after high-fiving assistant coach Michael Carrick, the midfielder stopped abruptly when Mourinho appeared to ask the player if he was "happy" United lost after they exchanged a cursory handshake.

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.

There are also said to be problems behind the scenes, with several players unhappy at executive vice chairman Ed Woodward taking Mourinho's side in the row.

Derby County manager Frank Lampard has admitted that he was "shell-shocked" by his side's victory over Manchester United at Old Trafford this evening. No fall out. The person who made the decision to be second-captain was also me.

United boss Jose Mourinho and the French World Cup victor are at odds again - and were involved in a showdown at training yeterday - as the £89million man was stripped of the vice-captaincy before the Carabao Cup defeat to Derby.

"Mourinho's message to the United squad, delivered at Carrington today, was created to underline his authority and remind the players that he is in charge", added The Times report.

Liverpool tipped to make move for Aaron Ramsey
Arsenal could be forced into selling the player during the January transfer window if they want to avoid him leaving for nothing. Arsenal midfielder Aaron Ramsey is likely to leave the club next summer after the Gunners withdrew the offer of a new deal.

"I think the World Cup is the ideal habitat for a player like him to give [their] best", Mourinho told ESPN FC.

"I think Jose has been patient, but I think his patience has run out now".

It's 2/1 that one of the feuding pair will leave by the end of the January transfer window, and just 3/1 that they'll BOTH have exited the club come kick-off for the 2019/2020 season.

According to The Times, the Portuguese tactician scheduled an impromptu meeting at Carrington on Tuesday, ahead of United's Carabao Cup clash against Derby County.

The 55 year old's decision to strip Pogba of his captaincy before the match on Tuesday night was another example of his negative approach towards his players.

Lampard's intelligent and dynamic midfield play earned him 106 caps for his country and he won three Premier League titles at Chelsea as well as the UEFA Champions League in 2012.

Pogba returned to Old Trafford from Juventus in 2016, but his relationship with the manager that signed him has been testy at times.
