Jose Mourinho had sent a text to Man United vice chairman Ed Woodward admitting that he could no longer utilise Paul Pogba in the squad, this is according to reports.
We were shockingly greeted with the report of Jose Mourinho’s sack on Tuesday afternoon and several reactions have trailed the unprecedented move by the Red devils.
The third season myth may have caught up with the Portuguese manager – United may just be experiencing their worst start to any campaign. After 17 games, they are sitting 19 points adrift Liverpool who are at the top of the table with a zero goal difference.
The Red Devils succumb to a 3-1 defeat to the Reds on Sunday, a game that proved to be the last straw that broke the back of the camel.
However, it has been suggested that the well wishes of United sympatised with Mourinho over his inability to get the best out of Pogba.
The pair have had a frosty relationship. Apparently, the manager decided against fielding the start shortly before he was given the boots.
According to the Independent, Mourinho had laid bare his disappointed to Woodward over the form of Pogba. He had even texted the top brass man of the club that he did all he could to bring the best out of the star but it was not working.
The French midfielder dived to Instagram to post his picture smiling and wrote, ” Caption this”. He has received tongue last for that unprofessional post as it is claimed that he is happy over the sack of Mourinho.
