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.

  1. But wait we all know in any form of game and career there will always have someone who seems to be disrespectful the good thing is that he knows pogba lacks respect so what

  2. Paul Pogba he is falling back because he lacks respect for his coach, but he is a good player I believe he would learn from his mistakes..

  3. This sounds interesting. It is the real fact. Mourinho doesnt really love his players according to the writeup and kill the honesty in his players.

  4. Mourinho should learn how to appreciate his players and not being harsh on them making it look as if they are the one at fault

  5. Maybe it because of te money that he earns that is making him not to respect his coach… Tho pogba is a good player tho

  6. Paul pogba is right mou don’t play and don’t respect players and supporters he always put blam on his prayers

  7. Paul pogba is right Mou don’t play. You don’t respect players and supporters he always put his blame on the prayers has a coach you support your boys when they lose and appreciate them when they win

  8. Josh the special one, maybe a man that talk much but don’t just talk without having fact.
    Pogba should check himself.

  9. Once u have a fall out with Morinho… As a player in his team… It’s hard to get his trust back… And as for Pogba, pride is the first thing that brings a man down… He should take note

  10. Mourihno should stop criticizing Pogba in public it is affecting his performance. The whole team should be blamed.

  11. He should try and show respect to whom it due to, proudness won’t take you anywhere. Be decisive and cheer up with your team mate.

  12. He is right pogba lack little respect… But coach as no choice because sometime pogba is useful. He do change the game sometimes

  13. Paul Pogba he is falling back because he lacks respect for his coach, but he is a good player I believe he would learn from his mistakes and change to good.

  14. Lol I think the name fit him well, a player should always carry his team mates along in the field of play

  15. Pogba rightfully had the ball in his possession but gave it out to the opponent . I really don’t think such a proud uncultured player is needed in man utd

  16. When one doesn’t play and support players respect them will equally kill the mentality of the honest people around them, Mourihno is right.

  17. They are both at fault…mourinho has his issues but pogba is not consistent and it’s frustrating…..and to think the team is built around him, he’s sopozd to be the leader, not bickering about

  18. Wow we all know mourinho is not good with words , he says whatever he likes to whomever he wants to but i dont support his words to pogba

  19. The problem I have with Jose is he will never get not to say different things about his players. He just kills morale everywhere. He needs to do better.

  20. I don’t know why Mourinho always falls out with players.. At Madrid, Chelsea and now man u.. He should assess himself.

  21. Respect matters a lot. As a player irrespective of your status you just gotta respect your boss (coach)

  22. Paul pogba is right Mou don’t play. You don’t respect players and supporters he always put his blame on the prayers has a coach you support your boys when they lose and appreciate them when they win

  23. Mourinho from the onset made their relationship turned so sour. He didn’t handle the situation well. Mourinho is just annoyingly uncouth as we have known him to be right from the first time he took over Chelsea back in 2004.

  24. He don’t respect players and supporters, he always put his blame on the prayers has a coach you support your boys when they lose and win.

  25. Mourinho, specialist in blame game. He is at it again calling Pogba a ‘Virus’. The coach should grow up otherwise he will regret his actions big time.

  26. Yeah. Paul pogba is really disrespectful. Mourinho knows his team members very well. So he is not just saying. He spoke reality

  27. Paul pogba is good but let him learn to be respectful, no two captain in the same boat, that will make the term fall back

  28. pogba needs more than physical skill, he needs to work on his psyche and people relations.
    He needs a shrink!

  29. Jose Mourinho may be right about Paul Pogba that he doesn’t have respect but let them try to settle their differences efore it gets out of hands.

  30. Mourinho is right, the way Pogba is playing this days is not how the real Pogba of last season used to play, I think he’s mind is not in manutd again, he really wants to leave the club

  31. It’s the same story with Jose, he clearly is uninterested in the job but won’t quit cause of that pay out. I think it’s high time the board realized Mourinho wants a sack

  32. well to me, he is the coach o what so ever he like or want to do he is free because he is the coach of the team

  33. Mourino should forget about this guy and play with the rest of the team that will be loyal to his team mates

  34. It would be better for Mourinho to keep this guy in bench. He’s not in good form compare to when he’s in Juventus.. he needs to sit and learn

  35. I hope Pogba plays better and as expected of him in their next match. He actually dripped form and maybe that’s due to his injury.

  36. Football is a game of 11 players. No single individual should take responsibility when the team is under performing.
