The feud between Jose Mourinho and Paul Pogba has taken another twist, with the Frenchman admitting he is ‘embarrassed’ to play for his manager.
For months now, Pogba and Mourinho have reportedly been at war with each other. Last week, they had a very public argument at training the day after Manchester United were knocked out of the Carabao Cup by Derby County.
Mourinho was not happy with Pogba posting a video on Instagram during the game, for which he was rested. He was then substituted in the second half of the loss at West Ham on Saturday.
It has long been said that either party will have to leave the club at some point, and that reality may have become a step closer after Pogba told friends his feelings about Mourinho and his negative tactics.

Further defeats to Valencia and Newcastle this week could see the end of Mourinho, with Zinedine Zidane said to be waiting in the wings.
But there have also been rumours that Pogba could be on his way out of Old Trafford, with Barcelona and Juventus mentioned as potential destinations.
