first_img BEST OF Top nine Premier League free transfers of the decade Son ban confirmed as Tottenham fail with appeal to overturn red card REVEALED Anton Stanley: Mourinho“It could really resonate through the football world if Manchester United choose to back Pogba over their manager. It would take some careful management but it’s probably the correct decision too. Mourinho has improved the Red Devils but it’s likely others would have done the same, it’s the style of play which sticks in the craw. As Manchester City and Liverpool thrill us, Mourinho’s side are dull in comparison and it is perhaps time for an inventive coach to take up the mantle in an attempt to get them back in range of an authentic title bid. Pogba does need to up his game but he also has legitimate issues which could easily be rectified with a more adventurous coach at the helm.”Tom Sheen: Paul Pogba“Jose Mourinho is acting in the interests of the club and the team, Pogba for himself. No player should be bigger than Man United, but Pogba is pushing that theory as far as he can. In two years, Pogba’s marketing potential and social media presence have been far more valuable to the club than his performances on the pitch.” 5 Mourinho’s relationship with Pogba at Man United appears to have completely broken down Where Ancelotti ranks with every Premier League boss for trophies won 5 It is thought that only one of Mourinho or Pogba can remain at United Who should leave Manchester United: Paul Pogba or Jose Mourinho?Their training ground spat earlier in the week highlighted their broken relationship and talkSPORT’s Alan Brazil has already made his feelings clear about who he thinks the club should get rid of when he called Pogba ‘poison‘ and a ‘spoiled brat‘.And it is understood the manager is demanding his bosses support him in his battle with their £89m midfielder.It seems football fans in general are behind Mourinho, too, with 56 per cent of people who voted in talkSPORT’s poll saying they’d show Pogba the exit. no dice 5 Oxlade-Chamberlain suffers another setback as Klopp confirms serious injury Pogba has alluded to problems at United – but the club are believed to be unwilling to sell a player they paid £89m for in 2016 Billy Hawkins: Both.“If United sack Mourinho and keep Pogba it will set a precedent that the player is bigger than the club. If they sell Pogba and keep Mourinho, United will lose their best player and results will fall off a cliff. It’s time to get rid of both and start building afresh.”Richard Forrester: Mourinho“Neither have covered themselves in glory, but Mourinho has too much history in causing rifts among dressing rooms. If it’s not Pogba it will soon be someone else.” Sean Gallagher: Pogba“Pogba thinks he’s bigger than the club and I believe he has created a toxic atmosphere in the dressing room. What example is he setting to the younger players at Carrington? He wouldn’t dare have played up like this if Sir Alex Ferguson was still involved. Mourinho is no angel, granted, but he’s been there and done it, Pogba hasn’t (yet). They need to get rid as soon as possible – preferably January.” huge blow Every time Ally McCoist lost it on air in 2019, including funny XI reactions silverware center_img MONEY Most popular football news REPLY So what about others?

In the long run, the club would be served better sticking with their mercurial, £89m midfielder – provided he can knuckle down and focus on on-field matters.”Jake Lambourne: Mourinho“Has to be Mourinho, he already looks to have lost the dressing room, slammed the youngsters on the pre-season tour of the US, and hates playing youth players. Fans appear to be against him, used to seeing their side play attacking, free-flowing football. United don’t look like Premier League contenders under his tutelage.” Which teams do the best on Boxing Day in the Premier League era?
