Paul Pogba was reportedly branded a ‘virus’ by Man Utd boss Jose Mourinho, as their fallout seems to have escalated further after the draw at Southampton.
The French midfielder was underwhelming as United rescued a point at St Mary’s having been 2-0 down inside the opening 20 minutes.
And it was the World Cup winner who seemed to bear the brunt of Mourinho’s anger after the full time whistle.
According to the Daily Record, Mourinho accused Pogba of displaying a lack of respect for his team-mate’s after his performance. He is believed to have told him:
‘You don’t play. You don’t respect players and supporters. And you kill the mentality of the good honest people around you.’
Pogba was restored to United’s starting XI amid an injury crisis having been dropped for the Champions League win over Young Boys in midweek.
