Twitter reacts as Derby County beat Manchester United in the EFL Cup

May JohnsonSep 29, 2018

Pogba watched from the stand as Derby, managed by former England midfielder Frank Lampard, knocked out United.

The news comes just hours after reports surfaced of a clash between Mourinho and Pogba in which the Manchester United manager told his midfielder that he will not captain the club again.

The United hierarchy are aware of the dispirited mood of numerous club's players, but there is a belief, and a hope, that Mourinho can turn the situation around.

In spite of him slowly losing support in the dressing room, United's high command is reportedly backing Mourinho to guide the team out of a poor run of form.

It's 2/1 that one of the feuding pair will leave by the end of the January transfer window, and just 3/1 that they'll BOTH have exited the club come kick-off for the 2019/2020 season.

It was reported in the build-up the Red Devils boss had told the World Cup victor in front of the squad he would not captain United again as he did not embody what the club is about.

Pogba is determined to quit United for Barcelona regardless of whether Mourinho remains as manager, and the deepening problems between the pair were played out in front of the television cameras at the club's Carrington training ground yesterday morning.

"The only truth is that I made the decision for him not to be second captain any more but there is no fallout, no problem", Mourinho said on Sky Sports.

Rouhani warns USA over preventing Iran from exporting oil - ISNA
Iran has not requested a meeting with the U.S. president, a spokesman for Iran's mission to the United Nations said on Tuesday. US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo arrives for the signing of a trade agreement with South Koreak in NY on September 24, 2018.

"The players were happy with that decision and the reasons behind the manager's decision."

Pogba was bought in August 2016 for a then-world-record £89 million, returning to Manchester United, where he began his professional career.

"We are at home and we should play much better against Wolves".

Pogba and Mourinho have also used the press to indirectly, and directly in some cases, attack each other.

He has previously been criticised for undermining Mourinho's tactics, calling for his side to "attack, attack, attack" following their 1-1 draw against Wolves.

Before the first Derby County penalty was taken, the United manager spoke to Lampard.

Mourinho's latest stand smacks of a leader who has made a decision to go all-in on reimposing his authority at Old Trafford, evidently deciding that the provocative comments from his most important player were the final straw.
