Watch: Mourinho & Pogba in monumental training ground staredown…

Is winter dawning upon Manchester? Or is the frosty atmosphere purely down to the relationship between Jose Mourinho and Paul Pogba…

Well, winter is certainly coming, but at Manchester United, it may have already arrived. The Red Devils were dumped out of the Carabao Cup last night, with Mourinho confirming that the Frenchman was no longer a captain.

Today, Sky Sports News have released a video of an extremely tense video of the pair involved in an apparent training ground staredown… and it certainly doesn’t look good…

I’m not sure who rejected who’s hand, but you can cut the tension with a knife. It’s a huge battle between coach and player; one that Mourinho will be eerily familiar with as that always tends to happen at whatever club he is at.

Right now though, I’m sick of them both. No player is bigger than the club, but that saying is true for the manager, too… At this point I’d get shot of the pair, or stick them in a room and lock the door until they work out the problem…

It’s just a joke. United used to be so watertight with stuff like this, but watching this play out so publicly is only going to end in disaster. With player-power being massive in the modern-day game, I know who I think wins this battle…
