Paul Pogba hits back at Jose Mourinho for calling him 'a virus' lailasnews


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.

  1. Both lads have ego which is causing almost 70% of man united backwards,mourinho should be matured enough and poul should just humble himself and concentrate on the field

  2. Pogba shouldn’t be blamed for the short-comings of Manchester United, the football game is a game played by the team and not just an individual

  3. You see they don’t trust each other again, that’s why they lose or draw games. A coach calling his player virus.

  5. By now all Manchester United fans just be really tired of the rift between Mourinho and pogba . The tatics mourinho uses doesn’t allow free passing of the ball. I really don’t blame pogba

  6. What pogba said is right because he is not at the fault …. mourinho is at the fault because he is dere choach he surpose to know the type of prayer to use for him to win the march

  7. They should both settle the issue bcos it’s not so cool having misunderstanding with your boss, it makes one loose focus

  8. Imagine a Coach making such derogatory and loathsome comment about his player. So do you expect such a player to play out his heart when he gets on the pitch ? That is so rude, unrefined and uncalled-for. The best for the two is to just depart; either Pogba leaves or Mourinho leaves because their relationship is so damaged and seems irreparable. Remember some players are also considering plying their trades elsewhere next season and I am sure it is down to Mourinho because his actions, words and mannerisms have totally alienated him with an appreciable percentage of the fans and players alike and possibly with the board.

  9. is that player ok or don’t he have respect for his boss. that is too bad for that player he he deserve punishment because he don’t have the right to hit back it’s boss for any reason because his boss is boss.

  10. Well! When tension can’t be hold it split out the worm inside……reacting to what the player played shouldn’t have get to the stage of calling them names……..so to say…

  11. is that player ok or don’t he have respect for his boss. that is too bad for that player he he deserve punishment because he don’t have the right to hit back it’s boss for any reason because his boss is boss. mohrino have all right to blame him as a boss ok. you guys should pass right judgement

  12. Leader should lead by example. It’s good as he reacted to that maybe the coach will learn his reasons and next time he won’t call anyone name

  13. That is absolutely not right for the coach to call his team player a virus, he’s trying his best.but as for the player he should respect his boss.

  14. What example is the coach setting by using such word on his players, hope it’s not because he is dark skinned.

  15. Dats absolutely wrong. He shld have a little bit of respect for his boss. They shld not be fighting on social media

  16. Why should mouriho call him names? Is it because he is a black man… If pogba was a white guy that man won’t dare call him names.. He gat to respect himself.. Pogba did the right thing..

  17. That name “virus” is not needed to be mentioned in a team work because it’s won’t solve the problem so both the player and the boss should be mindful of what they said to each other for peace to lain….

  18. He is not the team, but is member of the team, he shouldn’t be the one to carry all the blame alone.

  19. Mourinho is a father to all the players, he should learn to manage any situation, not calling names, Paul pogha kindly bear it..

  20. Why will he utter such degrading words, why blame one person for everyone’s failure, are they not a team anymore, why does one person have to take the whole blame. That’s totally wrong.

  21. Since mourinho knows that pogba is a virus why did he allow him to play the match n and now he is blaming him for what happend

  22. Until Mourinho destroys Manchester United,Must he have grudges against all the players..Man u should find something to do about it

  23. Until Mourinho destroys Manchester United,Must he have grudges against all the players..Man u should find something to do about it..

  24. Imaging both are lack of understanding, what is big deal if a player make a mistake and correct him but our coach wont do that, he is always fun of that blaming and call such names

  25. That is not good coming from a coach . A coach do not put blame on his players , he encourages them even when they are not doing well . That is why you’re called a “coach “

  26. mourinho is at the fault because he is there coach he suppose to know the type of prayer to use for him to win the match.

  27. I think Pogba is a good midfielder so Mouriho should stop calling him virus and find solution for his failure

  28. The coach is not respecting himself at all.
    Why bad mouthing the player, They should all share in the blame as a team

  29. It is too bad for a coach to call a player a virus
    That’s not a qualified coach, pogba was right I wat he did, this is discrimination

  30. Sometimes mourinho allow his emotions to cloud his judgment. His one of the best managers ever in the game but his arrogance sometimes let him down. We all know pogba is not in form but a manager is meant to protect his players both in good and bad. He went too far by calling him virus and this comments can weaken the squad and create division in the team.

  31. The coach is wrong and should apologize to him to avoid the players been discouraged or less concerned

  32. He shouldn’t blame Pogba on the short coming of Manchester united, I don’t blame Pogba on his reaction because calling him virus means a lot it’s an insult.

  33. Mourinho was wrong to call pogba a virus….the deserves the warning pogba gave him …he can’t except just one person to carry the whole team to victory

  34. Morinho is wrong to call Pogba virus as a professional football player wen things goes wrong like this the manager just need to call them and advise them to do thier best.southamton to coms for wining.

  35. I am not against the manager scolding a player but its wrong to call someone virus.And Pogba should give him regards as the head.

  36. For me Pogba is so arrogant and it is not the first time he talks to his boss openly…No matter what,he should not shade his boss.

  37. Paul you should not expect people to be happy with you after what you played ,he just telling you how bad you played in game

  38. Mourinho has tried as a coach for man utd. He should just resign. He’d had fall outs with great and key players he’d worked with at different clubs. Its so bad of him.

  39. Paul the son of Pogba had since being having issues with his boss for a long time. He is pointing towards the exit.

  40. It’s high time Mourinho gets sacked, why won’t he blame the players wen he doesn’t have a good relationship with them

  41. Mourinho is making it more difficult for his players to perform well this term, and with the way things are going it’s going to be more difficult for the club with the tight December schedule coming up. Management should act, and act fast.

  42. The coach can be sued for defamation, that is a very bad word to use on him, a leader is not supposed to be bad mouthing the people you are leading rather encouraging them to do better next time.

  43. They should both sit down and settle the matter. So that it don’t affect the performance of the team…… Arsenal coming to town tonight……

  44. None of them has the right to call each other names.they can never make it by quarrelling with each other

  45. Mourinho is right, pogba’s attitude in Manchester United’s dressing room is bad and he is trying to corrupt the good ones around him, he has to up his game, then if he doesn’t want to remain at the club, he should submit a transfer request by January

  46. I support him coz no one sits to watch himself get insulted fr no reason.
    DAT was a harsh one from mourinho.

  47. There is no smoke without fire..he must hav misbehave for him to make such statement about Pogba..there should be orderliness no matter what.

  48. Pogba shouldn’t be blamed for the short-comings of Manchester United, the football game is a game played by the team and not just an individual…

  49. Some of this coach sef are so annoying, must they always win every match? And what’s the insult for?
    Anyway, Pogba has given him his answer.

  50. That is always José Mourinho, he can’t accept a defeat, he always lay a blame on his one of his players

  51. No matter what, you don’t break the moral of your players by describing them using such words.

  52. Why would he be labelled virus… Is he the only player in the club.. Some bosses don’t have respect for their workers. Respect is reciprocal

  53. A coach shouldn’t blame any of his players for the cause of their failure,rather he should encourage them to do better. And even though it happens,not in the public

  54. Bad vibe, coach one must not always be good at the pitch, some times they are bad performance and good ones, so coach that is rude of you..

  55. Some of this coach sef are so annoying, must they always win every match? And what’s the insult for?
    Anyway, Pogba has given him his answer.Mr Jose be warned Pogba is looking like he’d lay something on you. Either his hands or his mouth

  56. The statement is worth it all. Calling a human being virus is not good.i don’t blame him for reacting.

  57. Paul Pogba is not really doing the right thing, he should help his team and not fighting with his manager all the time

  58. I love that boldness @ Pogba for approaching his coach to stop that blame on him, moreover match is by luck and not anyone’s fault if they lose.

  59. That might be because 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.

  60. Coaches are meant to build and not destroy. That’s really a degoratory word from a coach to a player.

  61. Mourinho is a father to all the players, he should learn to manage any situation, not calling names, Paul pogha kindly bear it..

  62. I just pray that the transformation that happened to Arsenal will happen to Man u. I wish mourinho will leave, pogba and some useless players there leaves too. Coz they are the cause of the problem in man u

  63. I don’t think the coach Jose Mourinho is not matured in his approach about this issue and is not right for him to be blaming Pogba for the team’s mistake.

  64. All ppl do is criticize mourinho…but dey don’t see wat he sees week in week out……pogba has a pompous attitude…for goodness sakes, d team is built arnd him but instead of being a leader he’s always misbehaving bcos he feels he’s untouchable

  65. Mourinho is always having problem with his players and he is responsible for man United’s poor performance

  66. Hmmmm that’s wrong of him sha that’s his coach even if he’s hurt by his words reacting is kind of not so good

  67. That’s not a good decision to take by calling your apprentice, or lemme say your player a virus, thats bad.

  68. Mourinho is obviously upset about his team’s poor performances. Scapegoat or virus, Mourinho the buck stops at your table.
