Pogba, Mourinho relationship at new low as United lose to Derby

Set to be rewarded for his improvement

Frank Lampard has revealed what his former boss Jose Mourinho said to him just moments before his Derby County side knocked Manchester United out of the Carabao Cup, the Daily Mirror reports.

Penalties were the least Derby deserved and the first 15 spot-kicks were accurate, before Jones stepped up and saw his feeble effort easily saved by Scott Carson.

Paul Pogba and Mourinho previously moved to dispel rumours of a rift between them but it was revealed yesterday that the 25-year-old had been stripped of captaincy duties.

"To have the personality to step up and take penalties and perform the way they did, I'm just a proud manager, they were great", he added.

"I am the manager, I can make these decisions, no fall out at all, no problems at all. We are here to attack", he said.

Meanwhile, NAIJ.com previously had reported that Paul Pogba has faulted Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho for applying the wrong tactics in Saturday's 1-1 home draw with Wolves.

"I think teams are scared when they see Manchester United attacking and attacking".

Only a stoppage time header from united substitute Marouane Fellaini had stopped them from victory.

Tom Brady shares thoughts on Jimmy Garoppolo's knee injury
This led to some of the fan base to call for a familiar face to help save the 2018 season: Colin Kaepernick. Garoppolo suffered the injury while trying to make a play late in the fourth quarter of Sunday's game.

The club said the increase was "primarily due to player salary uplifts related to participation in the UEFA Champions League" but Alexis Sanchez's January arrival will also have made an impact.

The decision is the latest twist in an acrimonious relationship between the pair dating back to Mourinho dropping Pogba routinely for big games last season.

Pogba is a pest and clearly an agitator, always has been, but Mourinho fits the exact same mould.

Pogba, who rejoined United from Juventus for a then world record fee in 2016, fell out of favour last season and suggested he was dissatisfied at Old Trafford.

Antonio Valencia is United's club captain. He was always likely to be rested, but the revelation beforehand combined with the defeat and his laughing and joking during the game intensified the media glare.

Between the visitors' two goals Sergio Romero was sent off for handball.

Pogba watched from the stands as United took the lead against Derby in the third minute when Anthony Martial's cross from the left was helped on by Jesse Lingard to Juan Mata, who swept into the net.
