Paul Pogba has hits back at Jose Mourinho for calling him ‘a virus’, warning the Man Utd boss he should not be made a scapegoat for recent performances.
Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba has told manager Jose Mourinho to stop blaming him for the team’s recent under par performances.
The Portuguese boss and French midfielder’s bitter feud was reignited in the aftermath of United’s 2-2 draw at Southampton on Saturday night.
Pogba was slated by Mourinho in the away dressing room at St Mary’s for being reckless in possession and, it was reported over the weekend, labelled ‘a virus’ by his boss.
Now, according to The Sun, Pogba has fired back at Mourinho and warned him to stop highlighting him as the core of United’s problems.
Pogba has been notably poor in recent games amid concerns from staff that he has once again set his sights on leaving Old Trafford. He is not alone with other teammates also considering their futures.
