Jose Mourinho gives Man United fans insight into Paul Pogba relationship

Juventus dump interest in signing want-away Man United star Paul Pogba

Jose Mourinho embraces Paul Pogba as he leaves the field after being substituted during the match between Burnley FC and Manchester United at Turf Moor on September 2, 2018 in Burnley, United Kingdom.

"Paul and the other players in the squad know in detail the reason why myself and my coaching staff made a decision to do that", he added. The team needs good players.

When pressed on his relationship with Pogba, Mourinho expressed frustration that television cameras had picked up their training-ground conversation.

"Manchester United is bigger than anyone".

"So I'm happy the rules are only 15 minutes [of filming training] once a month and situations like that are not going to change, there is no chance you will watch a session".

United dropped points last week in the Premier League against Wolves and then lost in the Carabao Cup against Derby County, now they need to bounce back against the Hammers.

His performances are inconsistent even though he's the best outfield player at the club, and he doesn't seem to have the same leadership abilities at United as he did in France's glorious World Cup campaign in the summer. "As long as he remains a Manchester United player, it's best that I don't talk about players at other clubs", Fabio said.

Nevertheless, Mourinho refused to reveal what he said to provoke Pogba's reaction.

But at a news conference on Friday, the United manager played down the incident by insisting it was lucky camera crews are not allowed in every day.

Whatever he or his camp might say, Pogba lacks the consistency to turn it around, the consistency in his game to play at a level where you think "at least his football is doing the talking".

I had a disagreement with nearly every manager I had, you have an argument but you can still have a relationship, and it's never long-lasting.

"The training session was open - you had some cameras with some potential to get some of the words".

Asked about his decision to strip Pogba of his captaincy role, Mourinho added: "I explained in detail to the people that have to know, which is the squad and especially Paul".

"After weeks of analysing and changing opinions with my coaching staff we made the decision Paul is just a player and not a captain".

Out of the top nine sides in the Premier League, United, now seventh, have scored the fewest goals, with nine so far.

And Liverpool have indicated their title credentials so far, although perhaps not quite in the manner in which most imagined. So I'd say it was between those two but you can't discount Chelsea .
