What Pogba Allegedly Said Shortly After Jose Mourinho's Sack

Paul Pogba wildly celebrated Jose Mourinho's departure from Manchester United on Tuesday morning by insisting 'he f***** with the wrong baller'.

One of Mourinho's biggest failings was a failure to bring the best out of Pogba, who re-joined the club from Juventus for a staggering £89million in August 2016.

The pair engaged in numerous arguments and Pogba was stripped of the vice-captaincy in the final few months of Mourinho's tenure.

According to The Sun, Pogba shouted: 'He thought he could make a fool of me and turn the fans against me. He f***ed with the wrong baller,' at the club's Carrington training ground on Tuesday morning.

It is claimed the only player who did not join in the celebrations was striker Romelu Lukaku, who was signed by Mourinho for an initial £75million in 2017.

Michael Carrick, who served on Mourinho's coaching staff, was quick to get involved though and reminded Pogba that no player is bigger than the club.

The report suggests Carrick reminded players that anyone who is not up to scratch would be sold and they needed to pull together to improve results on the pitch.
